Madalyn's Birthday Celebrations

Since Doug was going to be gone to New Mexico for Madalyn's birthday, we actually celebrated her birthday on the 13th.   We went in the morning and picked our camper up, and then headed to Old Forge to pick up her gift.  Honestly I think she was hopeful that she was getting what she asked for, but I think she was prepared for "It's too expensive".  
I made her close her eyes when we got close and she walked with her eyes closed into the store.  She was pretty surprised!

This is her "I'm not going to cry in front of strangers" look.

All she wanted for her birthday was a mandolin.  Doug and I figured since it's been a couple years of her asking now that it was time to make the investment into music!

She is so big! (Again trying not to cry LOL)
She has been practicing every day and is doing great.  Her fingers are finally starting to build up a tolerance, which is great!
