Eight might just be a random number to most of you, but my niece is 8 years old now!! I honestly cannot believe it. She's growing up way too fast. I feel like I blinked and she was no longer a baby anymore. We have made so many amazing memories together over these last 8 years. So to celebrate, well not fully celebrate but kind of celebrate, here's 8 of my favorite most recent memories that I've had with my niece.
1. Pumpkin picking and painting.
The sun was in her eyes so she kept looking away from me, but she's still the cutest thing ever.
2. A trip to our local zoo.
Everyone from RI knows and has a picture with the dog statue.
4. A trip to a zoo in Boston.
Okay, but check out that Peacock.
4. One of many movie dates.
I took my niece to see "The Incredibles 2" and "Hotel Transylvania 3", this summer and we have a bunch more movies to see when they come out.
5. Monster mini golf.
Although, in the picture we were clearing killing the games lol.
6. Baseball games.
Fun fact: She plays baseball.
7. Raspberry and blueberry picking.
I missed peaches and apples for the first time ever this year, but raspberries were something new.
8. Drawing with side walk chalk at home.
It's nothing special, but when I was her age I LOVED chalk. It was nice to see that she didn't have a tablet or a phone shoved in her face, like other kids her age.
