For Amelia's 13th birthday I picked her up from school and took her for an overnight get away at the beach. We stayed at a hotel I used to go to with my parents when I was a kid. We ate out, watched movies, painted nails, and she beat me badly at monopoly. The next day we went shopping then she did a glass blowing class. It was so much fun! Then we came home and her friends surprised her at the movie theater, then surprised her again at one of their houses for ice cream and presents. I think it was a pretty fun way to turn 13! I love this beautiful girl. I'm so lucky to be her mom.
