My Baby's Birthday Party




 Oh Yikes, where have the years gone?  I can remember so clearly the day my now 32-year old daughter was born.  I still count that day as one of the happiest of my life.  Her cousins, Johanna and Brianna, planned a birthday party at Amy and Dan's house in Seattle for Saturday evening.  The weather gods gave us a break from the constant clouds and rain that we have endured for the past two months and we were able to enjoy the evening mostly outside.
 It was fun watching the toddlers find each other and get acquainted.  The bossy little girls told the one little boy exactly what he was allowed to do and where he could go in their game.  The game mostly consisted of digging up the plants Amy and Dan had planted between stepping stones in the back yard and collecting and hoarding all the strategically placed rocks from the flower beds.
It was an evening full of good friends, good family, cute kids, and good food.  Happy Birthday, Amy!!
