52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 27


Celebrating with a birthday picnic.

My best friend's baby, sweet baby James,
had his first birthday party
over the weekend.


We all gathered at the park
and it was the joining of old friends

and new families.


Over the years, Erin and I always yearned
for the day that our children would be together.

We imagined what it would be like
to watch them laugh and play.


Amazing friendships
that have stood the test of time
and now our hopes of spending time
together as one big family have come true.

(We missed you Christine but
your baby Gus is the sweetest thing)


it was a joyful day!


Happy first birthday James!
We love you so much!!
Thank you for bringing us all together.

Sharing children's birthday picnics with old friends - priceless! Coming from a military family and having moved around a bit in my lifetime, I've come to realize how much I wish I could have stayed in contact with some wonderful friends over the years. Perhaps if we'd had facebook back them????
