I totally forgot to post about Essie's actual BirthDAY! The night before we ate birthday cake pancakes and she opened her birthday pajamas. Travis and I both had to work that day so we didn't get to take her out for lunch like we always do. She did choose to go to Purple Cow for dinner. We invited Lexie to go with us and they even sang Happy Birthday to her. It was precious to see her little sweet face light up!
Afterwards she chose to go bowling...we had such a blast!
