Walking On Sunshine!

She had a grand day indeed! 

Her father and I gave her an iPod Shuffle...beside piano and Mom's Playlist...this is her "first" introduction into the world of music. 

We feel she is finally old enough...and it totally rocked her day!

She and I sat down to pick out music with her iTunes gift card.  (I want to make sure I know what is going on in her head!)

And after most of the country almost blew off of the map last night...(how 'bout it?)...we spent a sunny afternoon at a local park. 

This particular park has a gorgeous pond filled with ducks and geese...the kind that are well trained to receive food from mankind.

And before we knew it, it appeared the every bird heard of our arrival!  Yikes!

What a brilliant boy I have!

And where is Mabel in all of this, you ask?   Suffice it to say she doesn't feel the same toward feathered friends like her siblings do.

Take a look...

I've suggested to drop the bread...

...but she freezes in fear each time...

...and I'm gonna get the picture!  (Terrible, aren't I?!)

She has learned to settle for feathered friends who appear smaller than her ;)


Back to our birthday girl...

Her dinner guest this year was Miss C. (another beautiful young lady, I may add.)


Dinner was at Fuddruckers...yum!

...followed by a pumpkin cake.  (This was rather easy to decorate since I followed the instructions right off the Wilson's pumpkin-shaped pan.)

It was a grand day indeed...full of sunshine and simple pleasures! 

(The next birthday in our house is in two weeks...I'm almost too pooped to pop!)
