I've done my share of the big bang birthday parties. you know, the ones where you have to invite every kid in the class, and the kid with ADHD and disruptive disorder shows up and devastates your house in 43 seconds! I've done the all girls slumber party where you sweetly say "go to sleep girls" at 11pm, then sternly say "Girls be quiet " at 1am, then by 3:30 you are shrieking about dismembering body parts if they don't shut up!

Yeah, well the pay off is doing something really fun in lieu of birthday celebrations when they finally hit the teen years.

Yesterday, we celebrated Virginia turning 13 by a trip the the Atlanta Aquarium. It was a blast!

The huge tanks make it larger than life!

This guy made me think twice about ordering calamari again!

Even thought we had to push our way to the front of every display, we had such
a great time! Her best friend Mary went with us.

Wayne was dreaming of being on"Deadliest Catch"

Leslie was not so thrilled with the whole adventure,but she didn't mind our dinner choice:
The Cheesecake Factory!
I think Virginia had a good birthday, now I'm going to finish
my leftover Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake!
