Because Ava was turning 8 on the 8th, she was allowed to choose to do something special for her "glory birthday". She chose to ask Matilda to go to Aussie World with her. We went on Saturday 5th because her birthday fell on a school day.
Then Matilda had a sleepover that night, and we went to Grandma's on Sunday for more birthday cake!
On Tuesday, Ava turned 8 on the 8th! She loved her presents, took cakes to school and had more cakes dinner!
