Birthday DESERT ~ Sadie Style

We had planned to take Sadie, her bestie and the rest of the Growing Garcia's out for ice cream BUT Sadie had a better idea.

She and Lola and their chauffeur (her daddy) headed of to publix where they bought all the fixin's (nuts, caramel, butterscotch, hot fudge, cherries, whipped cream, bananas, magic shell oh and I almost forgot 2 gallons of ice cream) and we made mile high sundae's for the birthday girl and all to enjoy.

Check it out...

Yep we totally put a candle

on her ice cream sundae


and Madison and their crazy concoctions

My wild and happy

For her special Birthday dinner she requested:

Mom's Mac & Cheese

Corn on the cobb


Strawberries and blueberries

and her BEST friend Lola

this girl is SOOOOOO easy to please!

Birthday Continued~~Movie and Lunch

After "their" moment the girls ~Lola and Sadie~ meet up with about 20 more besties for the summer movie Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs where they laughed so hard the cried.

Once the movie ended the girls snuck out and shared a girlie lunch at Stevie B's where they chowed down on pizza like grown men and cleaned house in the game room like professional carnies :)

Memories of GA~ Visiting Friends in NC

While in Georgia we took a little side trip to N.C. to see some old friends: John and Tracy.

They recently moved to N.C. and it had been far too long since we've seen them, so long in fact, they hadn't met any of our many children.

After an amazing lunch John & Tracy led our troop on a breathtaking hike through their property.

Nature books in hand

on the lookout for for birds, animals and plants

off we went...

over a bridge

and magnificent creek


Breathtaking views

Perfect photo opps

Our fearless leader
taking us on a detour~Down hill
and then back UP

it was easier for some than others :~)

another photo opp

This one with John & Tracy

Back home for a private concert

Then a private lesson

or two

Happy! That's what we are. :~)

John and Tracy we had SOOOOOO much fun with you all! Thanks for an amazing day.
Our family can not wait to see you again...SOON!
