Chloe's 9th Birthday

Friday, June 14, 2013

Matt pointed out that this is the last year Chloe will be in single digits!! There wasn't a lot of celebrating on the actual day--we did the balloons, but it was raining and we took the balloon photo inside this year. Oliver and I came to Chloe's third grade class in the afternoon to read a favorite book to her class in celebration of her birthday. I read A Bad Case of Stripes.
Chloe also had a swim meet in Bayonne at 4 p.m., so it was rush, rush, rush to pick her up from school and get her to the swim meet south of NYC on time on a Friday afternoon (I would personally like to "thank" the genius that planned that swim meet).
After the swim meet was over, Chloe wanted to go and eat Chinese so we went to eat at Pei Wei.
By the time we got home, it was late and we put Oliver to bed. Chloe opened her presents and cards. Her BIG present was her Micro kart and engine so the presents she actually opened were more of the practical kind.
More celebrating on Saturday with cake and then on Sunday as we celebrate Oliver's birthday and Father's Day.
The traditional birthday balloon photos. Unfortunately it was raining the morning of Chloe's birthday (and chilly).

Oliver's present to Chloe--running shoes. They were the most obnoxious shoe in the store. Of course, both kids think they are cool.

The 9 year old.
