birthday weekend picture storybook

The tree frog party was just as happy as anticipated and the joyfulness in the love that surrounds this little boy is always so affirming. He really enjoyed his day and all of the fun festivities that came with it...most particularly the endless hours playing in water with his "kids" and searching for crickets into the late hours of the solstice night.
Most of his birthday weekend was spent like this:
With weightlessness and soaking up every bit of sunshine that was kissing his shoulders. Summertime bliss, especially for this little crab baby. His element is water and he breathes it like a fish.
On Sunday, his actual birthday, there was also a little of this:
And that:
And for this four year old...volcano cakes and dinosaur bones are pretty much considered slices of heaven on earth.

So is traveling home from a date with daddy and mama with a new T-Rex book in hand, all the while sporting the coolest pair of flip-up chameleon shades (those of which I only wish were made in mama size).

Thank you for all the birthday love you showered this little one with. It does our hearts great good.

I forgot he was a crab like his mimi and his grandma gg! :) Oh...poor little dude! haha!! :)
We enjoyed celebrating with him so much and it's amazing to turn around and see that he's already 4! That sure puts a lot of things into perspective.
Looks like his actual birthday was filled with all of his favorite things ~ what wonderful parents he has in his life to make his b-day so special! I really love that last picture ~ that's truly him in his element!! :)
