Five Years Ago Today

Monday, August 26, 2013












It's M+L's birthday today! Luckily Luca came around when we went to the party store on Friday and got some big balloons. Suddenly turning 5 sounded like a pretty good idea. Yesterday we had their birthday party, just in case we needed it be a last-day-of-being-4 party. It has become a tradition going to this little amusement park we have here. Unfortunately, as you can see from the first photo that it was rainy. The first rainy day we have had in quite a while. Murphy's law, eh? We huddled under a tree for about 2 hours eating our picnic "soup" and getting muddy, but finally the rain gave out in time to pull out the cake and presents and go for some rides. It was a good day spent with our friends and of course the little ones didn't much mind the rain at all (isn't their friend ollie the cutest?! he's the one that looks like he should actually belong to me). Though let me tell all of you who don't have kids yet, the hangover at a kids birthday comes about 20 minutes into it, oh I am tired!

I think today we will take it pretty easy. We did get the catapult for them and saved that present to give them today so I am sure we will be having some serious catapult battles and reminiscing about our birthday party. I just love these little guys so much and I am pretty convinced they are the sweetest things on earth. They have made my life so very beautiful. Every single day they make me smile just by looking at their faces and make me belly laugh with all their hilarity and antics. I can't believe 5 years have passed already. It's been the best five years.  Today is such a good day to celebrate. It's bittersweet sometimes watching your kids grow but it's the most amazing thing seeing who they become. I just gobble every minute. Happy birthday my little Luca Sparrow and wee Milo Pollux! xo

And if you are wondering that's a 'domo' cake, by request. Who is domo? I don't exactly know. But they were very excited. And Milo is the one in the pink shirt, Luca is in the baja.

I LOVE that Domo cake but their excitement and joy takes the cake, so to speak ;) So happy Luca came around to being 5. I think the party might have had something to do with that! xo

  8. Happy birthday M+L! Looks like L was embracing turning 5 after all. What a great day you had planned for them, judging from the look on their faces they enjoyed themselves and the rain didn't put a damper on the activities. xo
