Weekending: III

"Weekending. My favorite part of the week. A time to relax, live, love, just be. ~ Amanda" 

Linking up with Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise

Birthday decorations still up
for the little girl who just loves to sing
"happy birthday", a memory
of the party past.
Family gathered around
to celebrate two years
of joy with Harmony!
My Little Pony as the theme
with hand-made decorations, cake, cupcakes,
by her grandma; home-made french fries
by request of the new two-year-old,
with hamburgers and watermelon
and Fitz's local rootbeer on the side.
Thrift-store dress just her style
kept miraculously clean the entire time.
Time to open the gifts
and many thoughtful cards and letters
sent by sweet friends.
New outdoor toys!
New books!
First time for a trike!
A pony play mat!
A hand-carved wooden cradle
from grandpa to go with her first baby doll!
Ponies all evening, and every day
afterwards, too.
Then the flurry of errands, shopping,
meals, church, and appointments
that the weekend always brings,
enjoying the summer solstice
and the presence of family still visiting.

All pictures taken by my mom, Harmony's loving grandma!
