Abby decided against a big party this year and choose two of her best friends to hang out with on her birthday. Abby invited Avery and August to come over to enjoy her dad’s fantastic hamburgers. Then she opened presents and we sang “Happy Birthday” to her while she blew out her number 13 candle on her donut cake (specifically requested). Then I took the girls to Overdrive to do some indoor go kart racing. It was a busy night, so they were lumped in a group with some older kids and adults. The girls did really well considering it was their first time. They had a blast, and they all came away with smiles. Then it was back to the house so the girls could watch movies and hang out. There wasn’t a lot of movie watching. They entertained themselves for quite some time in Abby’s room just being teenage girls. I was happy to see how much fun she was having with two of her closest friends.
