In lieu of one single party, we decided to make Alaina's 7th birthday a days-long event.
1. It all started Sunday with Alaina's birthday treat of choice: ice cream cones. I put a candle in one, and we got to share the moment with Gramma and Grampa via Skype. Summer birthdays are the best because of all the ice cream options that make the most sense.
5. We do have quite the summer project. We're working as much as we can at Redemption Gardens, a garden that is being built at our church. I've shoveled alpaca poo, spread dead leaves and watered, and this week we got to begin planting. We've planted peas, corn, squash, pumpkins and beans. The girls have helped, but mostly they like to play with Abby on the playground. We can't wait to try the vegetables that are going to come out of this garden.
I need a nap.
