Gracelin's birthday (2 months belated)

This lucky girl got to turn six in the "Happiest Place on Earth". And it was a surprise. She had no idea that was where we were headed.

I just can't believe I have a six year old. She is so smart, and so grown up. She recently finished kindergarten, and in every category she was above grade level. She's kind, obedient, and so much fun to be around. I couldn't ask for a better daughter.
We actually spent several days at Disneyland, but on the day of her "real" birthday, she got to choose any ride she wanted. Her choice: California Screamin' seven times in a row (I think. I kind of lost track) She's a daredevil! And yes, she really does keep her hands up the entire time.
Brynlee had fun at the park too. She was finally tall enough to ride the majority of the rides. Her favorite was Tower of Terror.
We also spent 2 days at the beach, soaking up the sun. Those were mommy's favorite days. We even saw a dolphin swimming laps across the beach.
And two nights were spent (one each way, as we drove) in the Excalibur at Las Vegas, because where else does a princess sleep if not in a castle.

She is so cute and grown up looking! Time flies.... I'm glad she had such a fun birthday! I wish I could spend my birthday at Disneyland, too. Maybe I'll plan that one for next year. ha ha
