S's b-day was on a Thursday one of many crazy days around our house. She had dance company after school until about 4:00. At 6:30 she had ballet class for two hours. Sidney likes to eat healthy so we did have salad with chicken and various other healthy things so that's what we had for dinner. We couldn't open presents until 8:45 when she got home. But I think she had a fun day anyways!
I got some ticket to Fashion Fusion and S was the chosen one to come with me since it was her birthday weekend. K did meet us there also. This is on the red carpet. We got a bag full of gifts, VIP passes to the fashion show and chocolates from Godiva. Yum! We were planning on going to dinner to celebrate her birthday but it got too late. S had Nutcracker auditions the next day and she did not want to go to bed late. So we postponed the dinner for a later date.
Saturday was University of Phoenix Homecoming at the zoo. So we went and had lunch and walked around the zoo for a couple of hours.
Sunday was the family celebration!

A few weeks later we finally made it out to dinner. S chose Thai Siam. We had never been there before so we did not know what to expect but it was delicious. We forgot to take pictures :( but this is the outside of the restaurant and a representation of our food.
We love S. She's so fun to have in our family. I can't believe she is 17 and that this is pretty much her last year at home. She's so busy with dance, school, church, college applications, friends, work, etc. But she does a great job balancing it all!
