a birthday

Caroline is seven.  

{I didn't mean to, but doesn't the garland gift wrap remind you of a medieval festival??}

{The morning at the Whitaker Science center in Harrisburg, PA.}

{Me and wind-blown hair after standing in the hurricane chamber with 95 mph winds.  Intense.  And I'm also the bag lady for the day.}

{More flowers to be dried, given as birthday gifts for the girls from little friends.}

{Definitely a fairy birthday for a fairy daughter.}

{First sight of my wobbly, yet "artsy-looking" candles.}

Sometimes, especially birthdays, it is worth wearing yourself out for such giddy, happy moments as these.

A happy, happy birthday to my oldest.
