6:15 a.m. - Awake and excited to tell the world it is her birthday. (She normally doesn't wake up until 7a.m. Lucky us!)
9:15 a.m. - Toe-tapping her way around the soccer ball at her last soccer practice.
9:30 a.m. - Her darling teammates sang Happy Birthday to her before the start of their last game of the season. (So sweet!)
11:15 a.m. - Tailgating and ready to go to her first USC game. Her brother was kind enough to let her borrow his foam fingers. (By the way, when she found out there was a USC football game on her actual birthday, it was HER idea to go. She is certainly her daddy's little girl!)
11:30 a.m. - First family outing (and picture) at a USC football game!
12:15 p.m. - At our seats that were too good for either of the kids to appreciate.
12:30 p.m. - Got what she came for: the pom poms. A kind woman sitting in the row in front of us gave Lauren both of her pom poms.
1:40 p.m. - She tried to take a nap in her seat but said the band and the people were too noisy...go figure!
7:30 p.m. - After eating dinner at the restaurant of her choice, CPK, she had a big Vons cake waiting for her. (I know there are fabulous bakeries out there, but Vons really does make a good cake, too!)
7:31 p.m. - Blowing out the candles. It took a few tries. Five, to be exact.
8:35 p.m. - Catching flies on her way home from an exhausting but unforgettable day!
