We celebrated Isabel’s 6th birthday today. Preparing for the party was fun, and reaping the benefits of hard work– rewarding. My dear sweet husband cleaned this morning while I decorated the cake (another hobby of mine), and made the blueberry scones…thanks hunny ;) I think the little girls felt pretty special using their own tea pot and cups. The boys certainly weren’t into the frills of a tea party, but definitely enjoyed the food. Can you count how many outfits a girl must wear in the coarse of three hours? I counted five, but I’m sure there were more. The laundry shall swell to over-flowing by the weekend’s close. Unfortunately, our endeavors of bird watching were less than I expected. It was windy. Who can stop girls from giggling and keep boys quiet enough for that anyways?
