As of yesterday, this one is in double digits (She's 10.) so we celebrated with a birthday lunch in Ashland at her favorite restuarant.
While we waited for our lunch to arrive, Courtney gave us a spelling test. (She thinks I'm the smartest person ever because I can spell 'philosophical'.)
And then we took a few pictures at Lithia Park.
And opened one of her presents.
That one is a big, blurry mess, but that's the response I got when she saw what was inside the sack.
And then we stopped for dessert.
Josh had just lit a candle for her and was trying to block the wind from blowing it out.
Josh Downs was threatening to steal a bite of her birthday dessert.
And then I took one last shot of the birthday girl and her daddy before we headed back into town to pick up Coley from School.
Happy Birthday Courtney Lee. (You're a super-cool chickie and I love you like crazy.)
