Happy Birthday Julie!

We celebrated Julie's birthday at Seaside this year.  What a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday!
Here is the birthday girl--on the balcony of our beach house.

Julie, in the den of our beach house--her presents are on the table behind her.  I did not put bows on the gifts (horrors!), because we were packed like sardines in our van!
The girls and I loved the pink walls!

Happy Birthday Julie!
I can't believe that you are 14!

Opening gifts----a cute shirt from Aunt Megan and Uncle Russ

Yarn from Mims and Pops 

Duck tape in fun colors 

A new running shirt in her favorite color
 After opening gifts, we walked to the town square and enjoyed dinner at a local restaurant.

Julie and Jimmy
Everyone drew on the paper table cloth while we waited for our food.

Julie with her birthday table.  I set it up while the children played all over the house.

A beach themed table setting since we were at Seaside!

The cake!
Julie requested pound cake. We transported it in the van with us and our one thousand other things on the 7 hour trip down to Seaside!  

Happy 14th Birthday, Julie!
