Seth turned nine during one of the hottest weeks in June. In fact, June was unusually mild this year. But I was determined to have this celebration outdoors per his request. Much to the sweaty dismay of the party goers.
I'm not sure how it started, but I think it was Seth who started it, but most birthdays at our house are marked with a pinata front and center. Lucy helped me find and fill this rainbow bull for Seth's fete.
I love being the woman in Seth's life. I love his sensitivity. I love his strength and determination in sticky situations.
Speaking of sticky, we came in for les cadeaus and cake. Seth was specific in his special day specifications. He wanted only a few friends and was lucky enough to get his Nana and Papa for the day.
"I want broccoli soup, grilled flank steak, fruit salad, dinner rolls, and a vanilla Costco cake with sparkler candles."
And of course, as my only son...
His wish was granted.
