The Real Day

Today our Sofie officially turned 4.  The funny thing is she wouldn’t have known that if we didn’t tell her.  To her she already had her birthday.  There’s just something about the real day though that can’t be ignored.5

(These poses for the camera are really too much.)

Even if it is inconvenient.  It is a work and school day, Lexi is at 5th grade camp, and Adrienne had a parent viewing at dance I needed to attend.  We made it special despite the obstacles in the way.  She brought muffins to school for her special snack.

4She was out of her mind excited about that!  Every morning she waves to me through every window, and at the last one we hold out our arms and say, “Hug”, through the glass.

When I picked her up we had just over 2 hours before I had to be at dance.

1We did a quick clothing change(who would have thought it’d be 75 degrees in late October?) and loaded in the car.  We headed up to Chuckie Cheese for one hour of do whatever you want fun.  I’m not generally a fan of Chuckie Cheese, but if you go at 4:00 no one else is there and it’s wonderful!


After games, tickets, prizes, and slides we headed to meet the fam for dinner.  Typical Culley style, it started as just 3 of us, me, Em, and Sof.  Between 2 and 5 it ballooned to a table for 10.  It was a hot mess of drinks spilling, babies crying, balloons getting lost to the ceiling, and lots of “get back in your chairs”.
