I'm just really over it, you know?
Sunday, however, turned our fortunes around. The sun was shining, the weather was warm ... proverbial birds were singing everywhere. The whole family (including teenage J., who battled his own fatigue to attend on account of he'd feel "too guilty" if he didn't) celebrated our niece/cousin's fourth birthday party at the in-laws, and it was a smashing success. There is nothing more fun than watching a gaggle of pre-schoolers splash around in a paddle pool, run through a wizzy-sprinkler, chase each other across the lawn and nosh away on chocolate-chocolate-chip cake, homemade by the birthday girl's mum. The revelry:
The lovely details:
The party-goer who loves the camera:
And the one who's "camera-shy" (or: "just likes to make things difficult for his papparazzi mother")
Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon, and big birthday wishes to our grown up girl, Little Miss J!
