Things to Do - Birthdays Times Ten


F's birthday falls on the same day as her paternal grandfather Bob's birthday, so this year we decided to celebrate F's 6th and Bob's 60th together in Richmond. I was a little nervous that F would expect more for her birthday - a huge party, lots of kids, etc. But she seemed thrilled about our small, family celebration. The beautiful weather allowed us to spend most of the afternoon outside, where the adults drank wine while the girls imitated random martial art moves from Yo Gabba Gabba and T tried to attack everyone with a plastic sword.


After F opened her presents we didn't spend much time with her, as she was lovestruck and swoony over her new doll- welcome to the family Sophia Margaret. Hopefully you like your new home.

Grandma Margie made F a beautiful picture of her "guardian angel." F hung it in her room as soon as we came home.

*It really is all about photoshop. This post has so much info my head is spinning.

*Lovely pics at 111 years old.


  1. Has it really been a year since we celebrated F's bday at the nature center? I still remember that day and how lovely it was. Happy belated birthday wishes and hugs to F!

  2. Thank you Tracie! I'll never live down the pinata incident (P still insists they're too tricky to trust). We're actually going back this year for P's birthday, she insisted on having the exact same party as last year, which I fought at first, then I realized how much easier the exact same party would make my life.
