Summer is…

…birthday parties in the yard, complete with cake and kiddie pool. This was the birthday party of one of Will’s pals, who is clearly excited that he is turning five! His friends are, too.

Happy Birthday, Ian!

Henry came along, and thought he was just one of the gang. I even overheard him telling one of the nursery school crew that he was four. I’m completely serious.

It all went fine until his cake capsized and landed on someone else’s toe. And that someone else ate it off his own toe. Henry was distressed, mostly that someone else ate his cake.

And Will was thrilled to be reunited with his nursery school buddy. Seems they had a lot to catch up on! This is my Best Shot Monday.

Wishing you a summer filled with backyards, cake and kiddie pools. Bring on the sunshine!

    Your BSM is so sweet with the buddies hanging out and talking over burgers…I can’t get over the poor spilt cake shot. I feel for him.

    That last shot is priceless. I know my daughter would eat cake of her toe or possibly someone else’s toe. Looks like you guys had a great time!

    Anna, your photos are so beautiful. A far cry from the fuzzy snapshots of my childhood, that’s for sure.

    Thank you for that latest round of RS casting emails. I could use some new makeup! (I’m sure competition if fierce but I had to give it a shot!)
