A Dream Fulfilled

Before we even left for vacation, Harper was asking if we could go back. She really wanted to play with a beach ball, on the beach, but we didn't have one. She thought maybe we'd get her a beach ball for her birthday and then we could go back to Michigan to use it. I love the fact that she thought she had to wait until her birthday to get a beach ball, that she doesn't assume we'll run out and buy something just because she wants it.

Of course I spent the whopping $1.09 at Target and purchased a beach ball to surprise her with once we were in Michigan.





The very best part of our time in Michigan was seeing Harper so happy. Lake Michigan + beach ball = three-year-old heaven.

That IS a good sign...that she thought she had to wait - how sweet! And I love how they don't know that the beach ball is any easier to acquire than, say, a new playhouse for the yard.

Glad she had a good time...

I cannot get over how Harper looks so much like a GIRL. As in, not a toddler. She looks like a KID.
