Matilda celebrated her 7th birthday today and had the kind of birthday that probably won't be topped for many years! We went to an amazing beach and she not only tried snorkeling for the first time, but snorkeled successfully a ton. We saw so many amazing animals and it makes me all gushy just to think of it. I was so happy for her, proud of how awesome she did, surprised by how brave she was and just crazy happy to be cruising the lagoon and experiencing it all with my big girl.
We followed the amazing beach time with a great luau. The super friendly front desk worker that Matilda befriended hooked her up with a flower lei and special front row seats for the birthday girl. Both the kids sat with their mouths hanging open for the duration of the hula and South Pacific dancing exhibition. The fire dancing finale was almost too much for them; it was so fun to watch them watching the show.
