Seven!

Birthday Mermaid!

We went straight to the beach the morning of her birthday and she was surprised with not one but two mermaid tails!!

Mermaid scales painting by the birthday girl

She ran into a few friends at the beach and they got to try out the pink tail.

Baby on theme with his Flock of Seagulls hair hahaha

Getting a Stephen King vibe from this seagull

In the afternoon more family arrived and we enjoyed…

Cake!

Vanilla cake with lemon curd filling and homemade buttercream icing. The decorations are Ghirardelli white chocolates that we made…

…plus a few fondant sea creatures. There are also homemade sugar cookies on there as well. The top two tiers are actually rice krispie treats. Cake inspiration from the ocean (obviously) and also Mako Mermaids (show on Netflix) and also from watching those dessert competition shows (especially Zumbo’s Just Desserts!) !

This moon mobile she got has a very Mako Mermaid vibe!!

The birthday fun continued into the evening with a trip to Old Orchard Beach!

(By day)

Β And night!

Best birthday ever!

Eye Spy Summer!

Eye spy

The eyeball is by far the most popular sculpture at Laumeier

Eye see you!

The Spy was not too enthused to take a trip to Laumeier Sculpture Park, and he had never even been before!

And I quote:

“I’d rather see animals than sculptures made by hippies.”

Bahahahahah

But of course he enjoyed the visit, even choosing his favorite sculpture:

This one was my favorite of the day

This one is a preview of a deer exhibit coming in August (and see what I did there with the perspective?)

The gallery is very cool

Hair sculpture! (too much of a stretch?)

Spy Garden Sculpture! (I rebuilt the teepee)

Dill and garlic in the foreground; and lots of it

The tomatoes are looking very healthy (foreground)

Scapes already!

And it wouldn’t be memorial day weekend without water, right?!

Wooo summer!

Baby earned her swim band by swimming 25 METERS all by herself!!! Now she can go on the waterslides!!! yeah!

He is loving his new team and has had A LOT of games!!

This is where we hiked a few weeks ago, now it is so flooded!

Walking (and running) along the levee

Life moves fast and if you don’t take time to enjoy the flora and fauna you might Egret it!
