On Sunday Elise turned four! Leading up to her birthday there was a lot of planning, but ultimately she wanted a road trip instead of a party with friends. How cool is that?! We, of course, wanted to nurture this inclination to travel so we did a small birthday at home before hitting the road.
Here she is blowing out candles. The day before she told me that she was changing her favorite color to yellow. Ok kid.
She also got a big girl bike. She had been long watching Cordelia on her bike as she slowly moved along on her tricycle. It was time.
My parents came over for presents and cake.
Complete with a doll named Elise. Cordelia was gifted with a little something as well so they could play together.
After that we hit the road, headed for Rapid City SoDak and adventure. We had not been to SoDak for some time and the trip was brief. So we jammed it in to the max.
When we arrived we checked into our hotel and then headed out for dinner. We found a chain restaurant that serves pizza with vegan cheese!
It was a really good day.
