Show off Your Shot

My firstborn is turning double digits--the big 10!--at the end of this month.

She is seen above with her early birthday present from us--
Julie, from American Girl Place, and in both pictures, she is wearing her new birthday dress.

Her Julie/Hippie Chick Slumber Party is this weekend...and we are so excited for the super fun girl time.

The following weekend is her real birthday, and my hubby's 40th b-day is the same weekend...he's not quite over the hill...but he's approaching the top! ; )

So we are going to our favorite beach camp spot for the weekend to celebrate both  
(in a 28 foot trailer complete with a bathroom and toilet--a hotel on wheels for us!)
AND, we get to have a gigantic much needed break from all the medical stuff...
{Insert happy dance here}

Here is where we will be:




It's paradise...and only 20 minutes from our house
{even though we live minutes from another beach, it only feels like a vacation when you actually leave town...and we're in love with this particular's an annual thing for us now}

Only 10 more days left...we can't wait! : )
