Fairy dust

Ry put fairy dust on
her pink unicorn this afternoon
and it turned into a bunny!

She also had school pictures today
and insisted on helping
pick out her outfit...

...and so it begins.
I've been dreading this day for
4 years, 5 months, & 4 days.

On the bright side
we both compromised and the
outfit was a success;)

Actually it was about 30 times bigger.

going to see a horse and an elephant

We saw...
