Best. Summer. Ever. – Episode 6: Millie turns four

Millie’s birthday is in late June. She turned four this year. On her actual birthday in the middle of the week, she and a friend named Kimber went to the Woodland Park Zoo together. I don’t have any photos of that event handy (maybe mi esposa does), but on that weekend we had a party for her here with our extended family. She wanted a cake with green frosting. She got a cake with green frosting (Angela said at the time that she will never do that again, but when I just now asked her to relive the agony she could not recall why she said that — my guess? She’ll do it again before she fully and permanently learns that lesson). Here are a trio of photos from that event, which featured a Special Friend in the girls’ lives, and especially Millie’s. Again, this was not an outing, but there are plenty of those to mention still and again, this is one of the fun things we did together.

Our bunch gathered to celebrate Millie's birthday. The Lamaze toys on the floor remind us that my niece had to leave early with her baby, one of the newest members of the tribe.

    Looks like a very special day. Your girls are growing up so fast! Millie’s dress looks lovely (the girl in me wishes I could see the whole of it but I love the waist-band).

      Hi Jana,
      You would know about how fast the girls grow up, too! Yes, that dress is adorable, and I’m sure I have photos around of Millie (maybe even Mara before her) in it that show the full length of it. If I stumble on one I’ll send it to you.
