I am a few days behind. July 4 was Olivia’s birthday, and she had fun celebrating with our family and with a sweet friend. The night before, we enjoyed a picnic on the hill at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion’s Star-Spangled Salute. The next day (friend slept over that night), we woke up early, got donuts, and ate them at The Woodlands 4th of July parade. Boy was it hot outside! Later we headed down to Memorial City Mall in Houston and shopped the American Girl store. Olivia got a new doll and a couple of books, and we all (including Ray!) enjoyed a very cute tea party at the American Girl bistro. It was sweet and special! We also enjoyed smoothies and carousel rides in the mall, pizza and cake back at home, and just some “chill” time at the house. Fun celebration!!
