Today was the big three! "I'm free!" she says. Justin helped her choose her clippie for today. She chose one, then says she wants this "birthday clippie". This was a Fancy Nancy clippie I made to match a tutu for a costume a while ago. Apparently it's now been dubbed a birthday special.
Since we were at the beach last week (pics to come) we decided to go to the lake this weekend. Riverbank is one of Grayson's most favorite places, so she beamed when we sang to her this morning then packed everyone into the car. Favorite sausage biscuits and scones were on order for breakfast in the car, along with a new coloring book and stickers for the drive. She opened her other gift from us when we got there, and we promptly played a round with Maymay and Peeps. I can't believe she is already old enough to play Candyland! After Finley's morning nap, we went to the dock for a picnic lunch...pimento cheese sandwiches, of course.
She got to swim, take her first ride in Peepsie's new boat "A Very Gray Jackfin" (Avery Grayson Jackson Finley), eat a yummy dinner on the porch topped off with super yummy pink cupcakes, open gifts from Maymay and Peeps, and then finish the night with a good Uncle Remus read from Peepsie. It sure was a fun day!
Grayson, we love you so much. We are so thankful the Lord brought you into our family three years ago. "Its a girl!" the doctor said and we laughed and cried happy tears. It has been such a joy to see how much you have grown this last year. We love you to the moon and back, moon and back, moon and back, moon and back.
