So the girl turned nine today! She’s been all sorts of excited about it this year. Apparently nine is Sydney milestone. She was of course showered with the usual plethora of gifts from Mimi, Pop, Granny, aunts, uncles, cousins, and of course mom and dad. Her big present this year is a trip to Atlantis in Dubai with her friend Ava. The trip isn’t until next spring when it warms up enough to go swimming with the dolphins and all that. Ava’s birthday is within days of Sydney’s so she found out about her trip a bit early but I don’t think they knew they were getting to go together. There are of course pictures below. If you REALLY want to go through them all feel free to do so here.
