Scenes from a birthday weekend

Oh, hey there. Remember me? Did you think I'd completely abandoned my little blog? I was gone for way longer than normal, I know, but I had a really good reason. It was Dylan's birthday! My baby boy is seven now, and we celebrated big time.

Birthday banner + birthday boy

Dino cake from the bakery for birthday dinner

He insisted on carrying his own cake in. "Because, I am seven..."

My feet in the front yard 

Lego dinosaurs assembled... now it's time to try them out outside!

 Yet another daffodil

Sittin' on the front step

 Morning cuppa

 Amazing sky

Royal Roads, my Sunday morning run destination

 Birthday party pirate island cake

Making a wish {check out those rosy cheeks, post-Playzone party!}

One more visit with our darling Kelly before she heads back up north

Just one weekend left before I'm off to New York City for spring break! I've got a lot to do between now and then. How about you? Have you got any plans for the week ahead? And before I forget, how was your weekend?

    1. Oh dear, Cass. Good-byes are so hard. But just think, two weeks and two days from now, we'll be at The Hunger Games {in IMAX!} That's got to cheer you up a little bit, right?
