NYC with Mommy

On Friday, I got to miss school and go to New York City to meet MO WILLEMS! I LOVE MO WILLEMS! He writes the best, funniest books. My favorite is Knuffle Bunny, but Elephant and Piggie and the Pigeon are my favorites too. I even have a Knuffle Bunny toy that I bought with my allowance.
First when we got off the train, we took a taxi to the American Girl Store so I could spend the gift cards I got for my birthday. That was SO FUN. I got the ballet outfit and the movie dress for my Ruthie. I was really excited! I changed Ruthie into her new dress while we took another taxi to meet Mo so she would look extra pretty.

Then we went to a restaurant and had cupcakes while we waited for Mo to arrive. I played with the Pigeon App on the iPad - it was really neat. I learned how to draw a pigeon and it is so easy. I'm such a great pigeon drawer now, see?

I got to meet Mo, who was so funny and nice. We took a picture and we were monsters.
Mo even signed a book for me! And he signed a book for my kindergarten teacher because she loves Mo Willems even more than me. She has an Elephant and Piggie tshirt!!
After that, we went to Times Square, which is my favorite place in New York, except for the American Girl Store.
Its really busy and you have to hold someone's hand so you don't get lost. We got a Starbucks (yummmmmm) and then we went to the big Toys R Us and they had a whole Barbie room! SO cool!!!

It was such a super fun day. I can't wait to go back to New York again. I want to move there and ride in taxis every day!!

disclosure: we attended this event as guests of Disney Digital Books and were provided with transportation and a gift bag. As always, all opinions are grace's, as told to mommy.

pumpkin patch

We went to the pumpkin patch with church. It was fun. We liked the gourds - they look like swans!

We ate apple cider donuts and had apple cider slushies (which are AWESOME) and had so much fun.
We didn't get to go on the hayride, because we were late, but we still got lots of hay everywhere!

grace's birthday

We had a moon bounce!

These are my friends. We had so much fun bouncing - I'm really good at twirling.

Uncle Billy made balloon animals. All the boys got swords.

Mommy and I made a RAINBOW CAKE! And we had sundaes too.

It was awesome! I loved my blue and white birthday party!!
