happy sixth birthday little miss
We celebrated LM's birthday with family back in August. She requested to roast hot dogs and s'mores over a campfire, so I asked my sister Amy if we could throw the party in her backyard set in the beautiful mountains near Park City. There was one purple polka dot balloon tied to the picnic table and the view did the rest. LM and her cousins spent all evening laughing together on the trampoline, exploring the area on a 'secret' hike, and enjoying the farm animals including Pip the pygmy goat. We sang Happy Birthday with six candles stuck haphazardly into a sticky roasted marshmallow for her to blow out, and I don't think a smile left her face all night.
Once the sun went down we all bundled up and watched the Lego Movie on the side of the barn with the stars and a big silvery moon shining above us. It felt like the perfect way to send off summer, and bid farewell to my sweet five year-old. Six is going to be great.
