3 on the 4th

A special little boy entered this world three years ago on the 4th of July. I have such vivid memories of that day, laboring for and meeting my first baby. Talk about an empowering experience! Anyway... this post isn't about natural childbirth or mommy-hood reminiscing... it's about birthday parties! We had a wonderful time celebrating his life at a BBQ birthday party this week. And I may have had a little fun getting ready: birthday banners, patriotic flags, and a really fun cake!

The birthday boy checking out his cake! (which I couldn't have pulled off without some major help!)

Cousins "M" and "Em"!

I love holidays, and I love birthdays. The two combined are even better! Happy Birthday to my big boy Finn!


  1. Wish I could have been there! Lots of big hugs for the Big Boy of the day!
