This weekend I celebrate with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. and link with others who share their celebrations, too. I am grateful to Ruth for starting this meme that offers a place to celebrate together!
The anticipation last week was high. It was Imogene's fifth birthday, and if you know or remember "almost" five year olds, you know they don't quite understand why the wait is so, so long. Well, it finally was here. Just the family celebrated on the 29th, her birth-day, including her favorite pumpkin pie! And the party was at my house just as wished, a bouncy house, with a water slide, friends and parents and a piñata. It was a success, clouds moved in to lower the temperature a little bit which was great. Here are the pictures, a celebration of Imi becoming five.
Ingrid and I also had some fun later in the week, reading at home and just being together, then out to a favorite restaurant, Noodles of course!
Today I most want to celebrate motherhood. I felt loved all my life and miss my mother very much. I loved being a mother of "children" and now love being a mother of "adults", and the joy of seeing my "kids" love their kids. This picture of Sarah taking a final pic at the party shows that very well indeed.
