i originally had visions of a garden birthday party in my backyard,
but you can see how well that would have gone over.
all the way.
leaf boat races?
he. is. so. in.
special thanks go out to my in-laws'
and my side-yard
for the bounteous (and more importantly, free) centerpieces.
i know, i took way too many pictures...
but cut me some slack,
this was my baby for a day.
(Have you heard of "The Cake Mix Doctor"?
She's the bomb.)
We had chocolate cake
with made-from-scratch chocolate cream cheese frosting
and milk chocolate shavings
fresh strawberry pie
(i was an "and" girl myself...)
i love them.
there are always some
good times and serious laughs
to be had when
nikki and michele
ash was so awesome to come and help
i was seriously in love with this whole day
