B.A.D.D Weekend

That stands for BIRTHDAYS, AQUARIUMS, DEMI & DAVID of course!
So she went to bed a sweet little 7 year old....

And woke up an 8 YEAR OLD with attitude!! Looks like that transition from 7 to 8 did a number on her hair and her attitude. Don't let the t-shirt fool ya! haha

So we had a fun filled weekend with Emma's birthday celebration that started on Thursday with a trip to the Dallas World Aquarium. That was so much fun. We saw all kinds of birds, fish and other animals. We all had a great time. Malek not so much once we got to the unwater shark tank, but he did love looking at the turtles and sting rays.
The octopus loved Emma and even posed for a picture with her. She also loved the all the enormus fish, sting rays and the manatee.

She wasn't too fond of posing for a picture with this little fella who had just caught his dinner and was waiting for everyone to finish taking pictures of him so he could go eat in private.

We did manage to get a family photo in front of the waterfall. This is definitely a place I recommend taking the kids at least once in their lives, maybe even twice. We would like to take Malek back once he's walking so he can walk up to the tanks and really experience it all up close.
And this is how the trip ended about ten minutes after we were back in the car and headed home.

So onto the birthday dinner at her favorite restaurant Olive Garden. We take her there every year on her actual birth date and then will have a party later on the 18th. So why the super excited pose you ask??
Well, tickets to see Demi Lovato and David Archeleta of course!

The concert was awesome! I didn't watch the American Idol season when David was on, but he sure did put on a great show last night and I'm going out today to buy his CD. He's just as cute as can be! And Demi! She was greatness too! But what else do you expect being a hometown girl! She even had her little sister come out and sing one of her hits too. She was too adorable. Our seats were super and this rounded out a fun filled 8th birthday weekend for Miss Emma. Now on to planning the cookout and Ping Pong tournament for her official birthday celebration we're having on the 18th. Stay tuned....
Have a great week!
