Cari enjoyed a long birthday weekend with her friends and family. On Friday evening, some of her friends came over after school, and they played the Wii, took silly pictures, ate pizza and birthday cake, watched Cari open her gifts, did manicures, etc. Most of the girls had to leave that night because of softball games, track meet, and a parade taking place early the next day, but we were able to get a few of the girls back on Saturday for a birthday tea party given by my sister and taking place at my mom and dad's home. It was a lot of fun, and the girls really seemed to enjoy it. The celebration continued throughout the day on Saturday, and everyone went home later Saturday evening. Becoming a teenager is a special birthday to have, and I think this one will be a memorable one for her!
Cari and her friends
May you have many, many more happy birthdays!
