There has been lots of celebrating around here for Lily's birthday! It began with breakfast in bed, our tradition. However, Lily had left her balloon filled bedroom during the night in favor for the soft pile of pillows next to our bed. When the kids and I gathered all the balloons from her room and entered with her tray, she was not in the mood. (That is soooo Griffith.) After she woke up a little, she enjoyed her sprinkle-topped oatmeal with us at the breakfast table before Jack and Kate went off to school.

The weekend began with Friday night Bunco for the moms, while John and the kids had family movie night with the Balbonas. It ended on Sunday with a picnic celebration for our neighbor, (and Katelyn's piano teacher) Nancy's birthday. In the middle was one of the best get-togethers of the summer: Quail Creek's neighborhood picnic.
With just the perfect mix of fluffy, passing clouds and Parker's signature breeze, we almost didn't need the keep-cool activities, but they were a ton of fun. In addition to a band and a visit from the fire department, we kept busy with a water slide, water ballon games and a wacky frozen t-shirt contest. What's that? You havent' heard of that game? Well, the photos below should fill you in . . . .
