Third birthday

Blowing out the candles 

Birthday cupcakes 

Sometimes one cupcake isn't enough and the occasion calls for cake, too. (Not to mention two cups of coffee, three cans of seltzer, and a sippy cup)

Opening presents 
 The birthday girl got her own lawnmower and other lawn tools for the new house with enormous lawn 

End of a big day -- Pajamas and party hat

Here's some pictures from my short visit to Columbus over the weekend.

Crossing the creek on the way home from school. 

Field hockey 

Valerie's birthday hike. Someone was supposed to bring long pants and a jacket in case he got cold. Instead, he brought gloves, homework and a green bunny.  Luckily his older brother gave him his swearshirt to wear at the end of the hike. 

Tired teenager and active latency age child. 

Garden done!
