We entered the theater and were told we have tickets for popcorn, we headed up to concession, and were GIVEN each a popcorn, drink and candy! I was amazed as this is all FREE! We then went in and got ready for the movie. We found two seats together in a GREAT spot in the theater and the movie then began. Atira had seen a trailer and was not sure if she was going to like it as much as some of the other movies, as it turned out, it was great! We both really enjoyed it. Great story and message.
We headed out after lots of giggles, some sad moments and a few whispers between us. As we exited the theater there was AG staff waiting and giving away gift bags to all the girls! Atira received 2 posters, a Saige drawing pad, doll tshirt, doll popcorn, sticker, doll size tickets and the latest edition of AG magazine.
It was quite an incredible blessing!
We then, of course, had to head over to the AG store and take in all the new release items. On our way we popped by the photo studio to pick up our prints(above). Atira takes pictures to update her blog of all the new items and reviews them for her followers. Once at the store they were giving away cupcakes! YUM! She had a quick snack and then we made our way through the store getting photos and some hands on checking out of the new merchandise! It was truly an amazing morning and afternoon with my girl.
I should add, all the time while we were gone, Jordan mowed the lawn twice because it was so long, emptied and refilled the dishwasher and put in laundry. What an incredible young man he is becoming! I brought him a slurpee when I got home. He deserved it!
(total side note, but I do believe I am STILL TALLER than she is in that photo of us against the AG wall, right?)

Atira's photography blog
The birthday princess chose to have a homemade dinner of hot dogs, corn on the cob, onion rings and watermelon. Topped off with ice cream for dessert. It was delicious. :)

We enjoyed the day with several other families, the mommies visited and the kids played and chatted. We explored many areas of the zoo, I think my favorite was probably the otters, they are just so cute. I also really enjoyed the flamingos. The kids had a blast hanging with their friends, and spending the day watching the wildlife. I'm thankful for sweet friends and families who make outings like these possible!
