Wednesday

Q's birthday party...
I decked out the lawn with Maryam's beautiful Moroccan wedding blanket.


A literal windfall from our overburdened tree.

The guests arrive!
Q was so excited about her pink candles that I thought three was just not enough. So I overloaded the cake with candles. Most of them made it outside.

Winding up...
..and giving it her all.
Look at that little lift of pride at the corners of her mouth.
Cupcakes and mint tea among friends.


Cousin Victoria and her friend.
Opening presents.
Playing "doctor" with granma.
A good old-fashioned romp in the dirt to top off an excellent birthday.
