Boo turns four

After much anticipation, the big day arrived.
She got a box of "special Cheerios" for breakfast.

Then we went to Anderson Orchard to pick raspberries. Boo has been asking to pick raspberries since October, and they just happened to be ready to pick this very week.
Kitty followed me down the line of bushes, sticking her hand in my bucket to steal handfuls of raspberries. My very own Sal. Kaplink, kaplank, kaplunk.

We had a lot of fun, but it was so hot and humid, we only lasted about 30 minutes. But we got what we came for. Plus a box of white peaches.

Boo had her last swimming lesson that afternoon, then we hurried home for our celebration.

You may remember that it's just not a party unless there are party hats.
Boo got a beautiful I Spy quilt from Grandma.

And the long awaited 'long gloves' for her Cinderella costume.
And lots of markers and coloring books.
And then...the moment we've all been waiting for...

The Birthday Cupcakes!
I was so happy with how they turned out, I will post about them soon.

Boo's sweet little friend came to celebrate with us last minute, and the kids had a great time.
A great day!


  1. Those cupcakes look delicious. Happy birthday, Boo!

  2. Those cupcakes do look very tasty. How long does it take you to make those decorative treats?


  3. They weren't very labor intensive, but they had to do several freezer stints, which made them a longer process. I need to post about them. They were very yummy.
