A few more detail shots from my iPhone:
We had such a good time celebrating this sweet little boy on Saturday. We grilled burgers and hot dogs and ate cake with our family in the back yard, surrounded by giant balloons and all of Quinn’s favorite animals. He was so funny when he opened gifts; every time he got the wrapping off one he said “WOW!” with all the enthusiasm he had in him. He got a little shy when everyone sang “happy birthday,” but was game to blow out the candles until he curiously stuck his finger right into one of the flames and we all yelled “NO!” at the same time. That brought the sensitive little kiddo to tears, of course. But he wasn’t hurt, thank heavens, and sharing a few bites of Gram’s cake and ice cream quickly restored his good cheer.
Happy birthday, best little buddy!
