Vera's choice this year, instead of a party, was to spend a day with me doing girly-things and getting to just have a day for the two of us to hang. First on our stop, Starbucks, where Vera had a peppermint hot chocolate.
A pretty bathroom break. ;)
A little shopping spree!
We walked around the tide pools, where the highlight was definitely seeing several sea cucumbers.
Vera and I then spent time reading on the beach. Reading Anne of Green Gables with Vera makes me so happy. It was one of my favorite books as a child and to share it with her is the best.
AND, making art. It was a brilliant day spent with my little girl, who is 9!
