From there, we went for eye doctor appointments.
Woo Hoo! Right?!?!?
See, part of A-girl's Christmas present was that Rainman and I would pay for a contact lens eye exam. She would be on her own for buying contacts, but we would pay the money for the exam. We don't have eye insurance, so it can get pretty expensive.
I have been having trouble with my prescription and ever since my girl's trip last year to Minnesota when my sister had me take off my glasses for pictures, I have been mulling over the idea of getting contacts again too....so....off we went.
We left the eye doctor successfully with contacts for A-girl! She looked so beautiful and so grown up. I think she looks awesome in glasses too, but I know sometimes you just want to be able to see the world without frames (plus prom was coming up).
We did gifts after Rainman got home from work (and I just realized that A-girl's contacts were bothering her by now, so she had changed back into her glasses for these pictures!)
I didn't have time to make her actual cake on her birthday, plus we were still eating S-girl's birthday pie. A-girl didn't care, she got a few of the gifts she really wanted....a phone (we make them wait until they're 16 and they have to pay for it themselves) and contacts. So, she was happy.
They played a crazy amount of loud, raucous games of Jenga! Seriously. They are loud.
