Stars Wars Birthday Party | Better Late Than Never

The winner of the worse blogger goes to... me!  I look back on all the blogging I once did and it saddens me that I have fallen so behind on my blogging. Not because I care who is following me, but because this space has been such a wonderful log of our life as a family. In the past few years I have grown my photography business into a full grown successful business but many other things have fallen behind. Next year I plan to back off the business a bit and focus more on the simple things that are important in my life.

Cooper's 6th birthday party was scheduled during one of the warmest sunniest summers we have had in years. But... it rained on his birthday. We had planned to have it outdoors at a splash park and all day I was depressed about the rain. Doug kept saying it would be fine but I was grumpy about it. Well, he was right! It was a blast! The kids even played in the water and we had the whole park to ourselves. It was so much fun, perhaps the best birthday party we have had yet.

Our boy is 6 years old. That means we have been parents for 6 years. Where does the time go? It has been an adventure and a journey.  I have grown in ways I never could have imagined because of Cooper. He is a beautiful, intelligent boy who brings us joy and laughter every day. He is happy and confident and that is all I can ask for.

Here are a few snaps from his party. Better late than never ;)

She is now 3!

I really just can't believe how fast time goes. Every year seems to go faster and faster. Our baby girl is 3! Does that mean she isn't a baby anymore? I guess so. But I like to pretend that she is a baby still, especially when she crawls into bed early in the morning to snuggle and sleep a little more, or when she says "I need you to hold me". But when she says things like "that's impossible!" and gets her little three year old attitude I remember that she is in fact growing up and quick.
Fina is a child you can't resist. Most would agree that you simply fall in love with her when you are around her.
For her birthday she wanted a zoo birthday party. We met her best buds and family at the zoo and went for a carousel ride and had a picnic. Annie made her custom order cupcakes. It was the perfect birthday for our big three year old.
Here are some snap shots from her big day! You can see her official three year old shoot with me HERE. :)
