Photo A Day - Happened This Weekend

It was Cyra's birthday this past week. A whole decade old. I find it quite disconcerting how quickly she is growing, not just in age, but in maturity, attitude, and jeesh! height! The girl is one inch shy of five feet. She is six measly inches shorter that I am. When she was born she was long and skinny and the doctor and nurses commented that she'd probably be pretty tall. At each yearly check-up she is off the charts in height.


We didn't do much for her on her actual birthday since it fell during the week. She requested an oh so fabulous bacon wrapped meatloaf for dinner and instead of cake I made tapioca and stuck a candle in it. The cake would wait until Saturday when she would have her party.

This year she opted for a small one with her two best friends. And that was fine with me (budget, budget, budget!). The only thing she really wanted to do was to go bowling. She talked about it constantly for weeks leading up to her party. So as soon as the girls arrived, off we went to the bowling alley!

I love bowling balls. Shiny and colorful! Just begging for a photo op!

Cyra's big feet! No, really! She's already wearing a women's size 7!

The cake, of course, came later!

Chocolate cookies and cream cake with cookies and cream vanilla frosting and (not pictured) a scoop of cookies and cream ice cream. Can we sense a theme here?


  1. Great pictures! I especially liked the one of her shoes.

    Sounds like a lot of fun. And yum to the cake :)

    1. The crazy girl kept shifting around as I was trying to get that shot of her shoes and then had the audacity to ask me why I was taking photographs of the floor!

      And oh yeah YUM!

    1. It was. Oh it really was! So much cookies and cream though I'm not sure I want to look at another Oreo!

  3. Bowling! Haven't bowled in years! That would be fun!

    1. Up until about three or four years ago I had never gone. The only exposure I had to it was Wii Sports! We love going but don't go as often as we'd like!

  4. Belated birthday wishes for Cyra. And the pictures are lovely. and the cake looks so delicious.
