The sun shone and we enjoyed the hottest day of 2012 so far.
And we had a carnival at our place.
It was Lucy's carnival...
(though I think she oblivious to all the plans her mommy made) honour of her first birthday.
Which is tomorrow.

Jeremy (son) and Tim (son-in-law) are celebrating their birthdays.
They had their cake yesterday...
and will go to work today as usual.
But here's wishing them both a wonderful day...
from beginning to end.

It's Lucy's first birthday.
Where did that year go?

Milestones are meant to be celebrated.
They are markers on the journey of life...
a reason to pause and be thankful.

Happy Birthday to all those celebrating this week!


  1. Good Morning...I could almost hear the noise and see the action from my house. Yes it was the hottest day of the year and we enjoyed the quietness of sitting outside late in the evening, celebrating that summer is here and it looks like you made the best use of the day. I'm sure there must of been a water fight started somewhere.

  2. What a celebration!!! I love your family and how you all love each other!
    Wishing you and yours a wonderful week!

  3. Your back yard looks like the best place for a carnival! Happy Birthday to all the celebrants around your Front Porch.

  4. It does seem impossible that a year has flown by. Happy birthday to the summer birth people at your place!

  5. I love how you have so many reasons to celebrate in your family! Happy Birthday to each one. I knew that little one wasn't a baby anymore.

  6. So glad the weather was so good for Lucy's party! Mommy did a good job for sure. Our youngest nephew Tim turned 20 today...
    See you soon!!

  7. Happy first birthday to Lucy! Yes, that year went by so quickly, Judy!

    Happy birthday to Jeremy and Tim! Happy celebrations to all!

  8. Happy Birthday to Lucy. Looks like a wonderful time was had by the whole family!

  9. Your family sure knows how to celebrate!! I love the carnival idea. Happy birthday to all and especially to your dear Lucy.

  10. Hey Judy - tell Marg she's excused - this time (smile)! Sounds like MGCC is planning something!!?? Have fun - can't wait to hear all about it.

  11. You all sure do know how to celebrate. I can't believe Lucy is one year old already. Happy Birthday to each one! I do like how you celebrate each person in your family, and always in fun style. I think the mountains in the background are the most beautiful backdrop!
