GB and I spent the evening together. We shopped and she bought sandals and a watch out of her birthday money. We went to Ruby Tuesday*s and she had a salad bar (no lettuce) and ribs... no children's menu for my nine year old! Dessert was at our local ice cream masters, The Jolly Cow. We came home and conditioned her hair and were cuddling in bed when Hope and The Dad came home from their date. GB was asleep by 7:30, worn out from three exciting days in a row.
