goals for celebrating marit's birthday this year: love on her and celebrate her precious life, while keeping it simple in the wake of a busy wedding week.
results: individual special time with daddy for birthday breakfast and mommy after dinner.
we went to our favorite book store and picked a few titles to add to our library and then stopped to share a big cookie and an izzie at sundrees
the next day we shared a picnic dinner at a local park with water and painting (two of her favorites) with two close families and adam's parents. i let her decorate her own cupcakes.
miles got lots of love too
paint is messy, but it's worth it sometimes
all in all she had a blast. she keeps saying things like "i'm four you know, so i can buckle my seat all by myself" and actually she can. little miss independence is growing up and i'm finding i need to slow down and get out of the way and let her do that at times.
brotherly frosting-face kisses
just for fun is a muscle shot...one day these guys will come in handy:)
