Billy's Birthday

On Monday, we celebrated Bill's birthday at his parent's house. It was really sweet how almost all his nieces were standing around before he blew out his candles. Very cute.
His sister, Katie, preparing the cake!
I love their homemade red velvet cake. Delicious.
Billy blowing out his candles. Happy Birthday, babe!

This cake was moist and delicious.
I love this picture of me and Bill's niece. We matched!
Bill's other adorable niece. She looks so cute in her Pocahontas outfit!

Hanging out on the hammock.
 Sweet summer days.
I like how Tracie's hair is flying behind her. Cool action shot.
 Waiting our turns. I hadn't played crochet since last year with Billy's family. It was beautiful outside.
We ended the night by looking at his new kitchen aide. I think he's going to love having it in his house. You can make so much with it!

I've always been a big fan of birthdays, and of course, I loved celebrating Bill's birthday. I adored picking out gifts and thinking about how we were going to celebrate. Birthdays always make me reflect on past events and things that have happened. I love it most of the time, but sometimes I think too much.

Anyways, this week, I want to celebrate more since his birthday was on a Monday. After all, it is his birthday week or month. ;) Ha Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Isn't it funny how birthday candles bring all the kiddies out? So cute.

Your photos look beautiful and I honestly felt like I was right there experiencing the beautiful summer day/evening. Such a nice escape for me tonight.

Yeah, I'm with you. I get a little pensive, even melancholy on my birthday just because I'm thinking so much about the significance of getting older. It's sort of a humbling experience.

And I loooooooooove crochet! I haven't played in forever, though!

Happy birthday to Bill!! That cake looks sooo good. Red velvet is my favorite!

I love Bill's niece's Pocahontas outfit. That is totally something I would have worn when I was little. Regular clothes can be so boring, hahah.
