On Friday, her class went on a field trip to a local park with a train and a carousel. She had a great time riding the school bus and playing with all her friends. Since we're only a week out from her baby brother's arrival, I'm really glad that I was able to chaperone the trip. She was so happy to see me waiting when her bus pulled up to the park that it totally made lugging my 9-month pregnant self around worth it. Allie kept going up to strangers and telling them "This is my mommy and she has a baby in her belly" as if they couldn't tell.

Then on Saturday, she had a sleepover with her BFF Abby. They had a great time. Allie got to stay up late, eat chocolate ice cream with sprinkles, have her nails painted, and play in the pool. What more could a girl ask for? On the drive home the next morning, Allie declared "I'm going to have a sleepover with Abby again soon! I'll eat LOTS of sprinkles!"
