Penelope spent her 3rd birthday on vacation.
As is birthday tradition in our house, we take pictures as they wake up every year on their birthday.  I love this.  I will do it every year until they move out and then I will make a photo book for them.  It’s brilliant I know but so not my idea, someone told me about it right after Finley was born!
HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY Penelope!!  This was taken in the grand canyon.  It was finally nice there that morning after 2 cold days in Arizona of all places.  
We spent most of the day in the car driving from the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas, NV.  We stopped at the Hoover Dam which is quite possibly the hottest place on earth.  It was 110F I am sure and so very dry.  I don’t know how people deal with this kind of weather, I really don’t.
As we were leaving the Hoover Dam, there was a semi accident so it took us just over 2 hours to drive 11 miles.  It was torture, TORTURE!!!
Finally we arrived at our hotel.  We stayed at the MGM Grand.  It was pretty nice.
The birthday girl already to go out for supper
Eating Gordon Ramsay’s world famous dessert.  They said it was famous or maybe it was his best or featured or something, I don’t really remember.  I didn’t like it but the girls sure did.  I do still recommend eating there as I had the best burger of my life.  I will post more about it on my Vegas Blog.
This was not the present I had saved for her to open on this day.  I had left that behind at home.  Thankfully I remembered before her birthday arrived so I could stop and get her something.
She got some Sofia dress up shoes and a tiara.
It was a pretty good day if not a bit tiring.  She didn’t mind a bit about being away from home on her birthday.  We are having her kids party today and our family one next weekend.  So she still gets to celebrate with those she loves!!
