Abby's Pre-birthday celebrations

The birthday celebration for Abby began early this year. Since she didn't have school on her actual birthday, we celebrated the occasion on the Thursday before. She brought in cupcakes to share with her class and her teacher Miss Marlo made her a special birthday crown!

Then, on Saturday, we had a surprise visitor. Grammy Susan flew in from Wisconsin to spend a couple of days with the birthday girl. Abby was sooo excited to see her sitting in the house when we returned from a trip to WalMart. Later that day we all headed over to Pensacola to do some birthday shopping. Papi and Grammy Reeves sent Abby some money for her birthday so we went to Toys R Us for a little mini-shopping spree. Abby looked at tons of toys and had a blast trying them all out but finally decided on a play-doh activity kit and a pink v-tech computer. After Toys R Us we went to Target to pick up some last minute birthday surprises and followed that up with dinner at Flounders on Pensacola beach. It was the perfect place for birthday dinner because the food is good and its right on the beach so the kids can play in the sand and the outdoor playground. It was a very nice end to a fun filled day.

This is in back of Flounders. I didn't really get a good picture, but the playground is over to the left and its just steps away from the water. Its a really neat restaurant.

I don't know if you can read the sign, but it says:
Man-Eating Giant Clam
Known to eat bad little boys and girls in one gulp.
