A certain amazing kiddo turned 11 today! She decided to go to the Houston Children's Museum for her birthday, so we did that earlier this week.
The night before we went, she had lots of fun with presents and cake:
She is a huge fan of the Rick Riordan books and has really been looking forward to his new book, which was released the day we were opening presents. She was totally shocked that she had spent the entire day with me, but I'd still somehow come up with the book. (thank you amazon pre-orders)
After presents, we moved on to cookie cake. Cookie Company did a good job. She wanted a Hunger Games cake, but they aren't allowed to write the name on the cake. Instead, they did a bow and arrow and also fire behind it. She was very happy. Her candles were quite persistent. One in particular would NOT go out. It was the source of many laughs and an exhausted birthday girl.
