Madison turns 13!

Today we celebrated our second teenager, Madison!

Wow, 13 years have gone way to fast. Madison is my easy going, laid back girl. She is not too picky and rarely asks for anything.

We started our day with her choice for breakfast. She chose cereal, strawberries and OJ. You see, I rarely buy cereal so this is a treat for her. She opened presents after breakfast from our family. She was totally surprised and pleased with her gifts from everyone. Grandma’s special gift of an atom necklace is coming next week, but I know she will love it! McKenzie is so funny, she told her her gifts before she could open it. She was so excited to give Madision a NASA t-shirt that I found.

As far as the rest of the gifts she received were, two books , a Zoomtool Creator set, NASA t-shirt and Bubbleology book to use with the creator set, a space planets poster that we are having framed at Michaels and a Lego City Pet Shop set.

During the day we took a trip to the movies to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. We had the whole theater to ourselves and I will admit that I fell asleep towards the end. The girls enjoyed it so that is all that matters.

For her birthday dinner we went to the Chinese buffet. The girls ate a lot of food. Montana loved the crab legs and ate a plate full while Mikayla & McKenzie ate enough sweet and sour chicken for two adults :) Madison likes the fresh stir-fry grill and fresh fruit. I forgot to take pictures at the restaurant.

Madison has a love for science, Astronomy specifically so the Lt. and I decided to surprise her with a trip to the local planetarium the night of her birthday. It just so happens the planetarium does shows for the public on Thursday nights and this months program is about the winter sky.

All in all it was a great day celebrating Madison! I remember like it was yesterday the day she was born. She’s had a stubborn streak in her from the beginning (must be the November baby in her) but I wouldn’t trade her for anything in this world!

Happy Birthday Madison!
