There is no desire to stop playing in this child! I doubt she will ever grow old.
The first birthday treat for her was to go to her beloved carousel:
Afterwards, we went out to lunch at a wonderful café, and then wonders of all wonders, we went to a chocolate shop and actually each picked out a special chocolate! (Obama was here recently so we were excited to see what he bought.)

As with everything else in the day, Rayna LOVED her gifts -- a couple purses, some jewelry and some art supplies.
This girl is the most fun person to plan a birthday celebration for because she appreciates everything! All day long we've been hearing, "Thank you for hanging up those streamers! Thank you for getting me a cake! Thank you for taking me out to the carousel!" etc,, etc.
We love our grateful, enthusiastic, joyful, playful girl!
