Day with Hailey-Bear

My mom and I thought it would be fun to take my niece, Hailey, out for a day for her birthday. It was in May and we haven't had a chance to have her party yet. Her birthday falls on such a busy time for her and her family with school ending, swimming meets, etc.

She had a swim meet Saturday, so we watched her swim before we went out. Her mom, Julie, was a state swimming champ, so all her kids swim. This was the first time I've gotten to see any of them go at it though. It was fun to see, and she did great.

Her first event that we saw was the 100 m backstroke.

Her last even was the 100 m free-style.

I tried to get a shot of her diving off, but I totally missed.

The meet was outside and it was so cold and rainy. She was such the little trooper.

After the meet, we went out to eat. Hailey picked Red Robin because they have the best grilled cheese sandwiches. I thought they were all the same, but now I know.

After we filled out bellies we went toy shopping for her with the money grandma gave her for her birthday. After much debate and swapping out, she settled on two toys she liked.

Then it was off to the movies. Hailey wanted to see Night at the Museum even though she had already seen it. My mom and I hadn't seen it and wanted to, so it worked out well. We laughed a lot and chowed on movie snacks and drinks. It was a cute flick.

I am so glad my mom and I were able to spend some quality time with Hailey. She is such a funny, kind, polite, cute girl and we love her to pieces.
