This week Ava turned eight! I can't believe I have an eight year old.
We always let the girls choose where they'd like to go for dinner on their birthday. Usually Ava chooses the sushi restaurant across the road from our apartment which makes things really easy. This year she was desperate to go to Bubba Gump at Pier 39. As her birthday fell on a school day going to Bubba Gump for dinner was going to be a little tricky. It would've been really late by the time we finished dinner, caught the street car back to Embarcadero Station and then caught BART back to Berkeley. So instead we celebrated Ava's birthday a little early with a birthday lunch at Bubba Gump on Sunday. Much easier!
After lunch the girls were treated to a ride on the carousel before checking out the sea lions. We stayed until the sun set before heading home.
Here's a look at our afternoon out for Ava's birthday...
