Abby's 12th Birthday

Kensley's best friend, Abby, turned 12 and opted out of a traditional party and planned an awesome little road trip to celebrate her special day!

I picked up a new top {which Rob informed me that it looks like a flying squirrel} and Abby purchased her and Kensley matching shirts.

After driving to Columbus, Ohio, their first stop was Build A Bear.
It was love at first sight for Kensley and that bright pink troll, Poppy!

Next, they visited The American Girl Store.

For lunch we ate at Mellow Mushroom.  Kensley was thrilled she didn't have to eat mushrooms.

Our last adventure of the day was visiting the Columbus Zoo!

The girls enjoyed getting to mine for gemstones and fossils!

Becky.  Loves.  Starbucks.

Hands down, this was the best Birthday party we had ever been to.
From the Mom's standpoint, I loved that there wasn't a bunch of fuss and planning to worry about.
In the end I'm guessing it cost about the same as throwing a traditional party... without the stress!
