9 years of wishes – child milestone photographer {tinley park, IL}

Yesterday we celebrated our daughter’s 9th birthday!  I honestly can tell you it really feels like yesterday they said “it’s a girl” and somehow now she’s almost as tall as me.  I could go on and on about the joy she brings to our world but I think as parents we know that we love them to pieces and treasure the big & small moments of everyday.  She has truly made our wishes come true the last nine years.

We let her decide what to do for her special day & we didn’t let the big storm stop our plans.  We packed up the car and headed east.  Our first stop was shopping at the outlet mall and the sun came out shortly after we arrived {thank goodness}.  After shopping we went to Redamak for dinner {it was so good – if you have never been there HIGHLY recommend it in New Buffalo}.  Then we hit the New Buffalo Beach to get our feet in the sand for the first time in 2012 and enjoy some well OVERDUE relaxing time before heading home.  I’m not going to lie – I had the best time watching my family just have fun – from skipping rocks, cartwheels on the beach, walking the piece of driftwood, playing at the park, and the quiet moments of my husband and I watching them be kids.  It was a reminder we need to do “pencil” in more of these days and not wait for a special celebration!!
