Friday, I was the mystery reader for her class, and then I had lunch with her. Saturday morning was a "Bennett Day," where she got to choose what we did. We started with donuts for breakfast, followed up with a playdate at her friend, Tate's house. This part worked out great since we needed to hit the ballpark for one of Preston's baseball games, and she hates going there all of the time.
As soon as the game ended, I picked Bennett up just in time for a family lunch at Sam's Sandwiches, and a quick visit to Homewood Toy. As soon as we got Walker to sleep, she insisted on baking her own birthday cake (lemon cake with lemon icing). Then we ran out the door to get our pedicures! She convinced me to choose a fun color, so I went with blue, and Bennett chose green (colors of the ocean, as she said).
That night, we dropped the boys off at Mimi's house and the three of us went to a restaurant of her choice. Bennett chose Brick & Tin. She got all dolled up, and we all enjoyed the one on one time together. Of course, no dinner is complete without dessert - so off to TCBY we went before calling it a night.

Bennett we love you so much! I still can't believe how grown up you are and what a lovely lady you are becoming right before our eyes! We love you so much!
