No one ever wants to change this tradition! We love it too much. Thursday we were blessed with beautiful, sunny weather.
The mock orange and lilacs were in full bloom.
John and Laura are learning to be buddy cousins.
And we all have fun taking pictures of them.
There were presents -- randomly all dressed in pink!
And a cake: gluten free champagne with lemon curd and whipped cream and lots of beautiful pineapple flowers and blackberries.
This provided the perfect opportunity for trying out my recent melamine teacup purchase.
Here is the happy, and beautiful, birthday girl!
It was delightful to have Alecia, Christina's sister-in-law join us too!
Grandma even got a bit of sketching with the children included.
One more April birthday ahead -- Laura turns 2 this coming Friday!
