Anyway, we took her to COSI on Saturday and she got to bring a friend - Lane. Yes, Lane is a boy but as I tell Ruth all the time - sometimes boys make better friends.
Here are Abbe & Eian with the geckos which was really cool. We got to see them feed the geckos live crickets that were covered in vitamin powder.
Here is Ruth trying to "order" something in the really cool soda fountain.
Then we had
cake and ice cream ice cream cake on Monday night with my parents and sister. (Yes, I cheated. Usually there is a big drawn out cake making and decorating day.)
Ruth received a mini camcorder for her birthday. This is something she has wanted for a long time. So, maybe one day you will be seeing a film of Ruthie's on here.
This is Ruth's self portrait taken on her 11th birthday.
