A very nice day

Today I went to the farmers market with my mom and aunt. It was a beautiful day, we enjoyed sitting out at Panera eating bagels and a nice refreshing, ice cold lemonade for me and coffee for them. Now I am sitting enjoying an blue goo ice cream, while I am writing this post. We recently opened our pool. I got to swim in it a few days ago. It was so nice to be able to get in the pool after a hot day.

My mom and me went to return some things at a shopping outlet near us. I got 2 new pairs of shorts one white, and one pink. We went to Dots. It was my first time to go to Dots .

I got my haircut

Today I got my hair cut shorter. I have had long hair for a while and I thought it would be a good idea for summer!! Here is a before and after picture

and after:

I love my new haircut!!! It has a lot more layers, and feels so much lighter. It's still long enough to put up if i want to.

My 13th Birthday!

Today is my 13th Birthday. It was a great day. The weather was beautiful! It started off with a nice breakfast. My mom made the IHOP recipe pancakes, turkey sausage, hash browns (made by dad) , and fresh fruit. We spent the day outdoors. We went putt putt golfing. We had a late lunch at Pizza Hut, took a long bike ride, and stopped for a visit at my aunt and uncle's house. Then my grandparents came over and we sang and had cake and ice cream. My family relaxed and enjoyed a movie together at home.

We can't forget the presents: I got a new purple camera, a cool pink case for it, a 13 year old girl figurine, (I have been receiving these since I was a baby) , lime green tank top, scarf, pink purse, 5 pairs of earrings, 2 mag subscriptions, a snack basket, 3 magazines, a handmade journal, a gift card to Target and money from grandparents, and sticker book.

I have been collecting American Girl dolls since I was 5. This is the first year I didn't get one. I wanted a camera instead. I am ordering a Ruthie doll with some gift money. I am so thankful for these many gifts I received. We will be celebrating my birthday with relatives in a few weeks. It was a really good day.
I will upload pictures tomorrow.
