Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (a birthday recap)

I turned 28 on Saturday the 14th, so this post is quite overdo. But I couldn't let August pass without sharing at least a few highlights. If I do say so myself, this year's birthday revelry was fabulous! I closed the books on 27, and rang in my 28th with all my favorite people and things.

Festivities were kicked off a week early when I was whisked away for the day by my sister and my mom. First, it was Mary Poppins off Broadway: I had no idea the storyline contained so many inspiring themes. The positive affects that a good nanny can have on an entire household, the value of appreciating people for who they are, the juggling act that is being a mother and wife, the importance of putting people first and being a good judge of character, the magic that is true love, the way that parenting comes full circle across generations, the importance of standing behind your man, and finally, the bittersweet nature of a child's growing independence.

With every job when it's complete
There is a sense of bittersweet
That moment when you know the task is done
Though in your heart you'd like to stay
To help things on their way
You've always known
They must do it alone
There. Practically perfect, and I hope it remains so.

Viewed through my "Momma Lens" I was a tearful mess! But then it was time for dinner on the waterfront. A new restaurant, creative and fresh squeezed beverages...I was in heaven! And that was before dessert had even arrived.

My actual birthday was spent at the zoo--an experience that I've been wanting to share as a family all Summer. I was not at all disappointed with Roscoe's enthusiasm for the animals--in fact it really made my day. It was so humid, and so crowded, the Duallie made a perfect Chariot for Roscoe and his many accoutrement's. We're planning another visit when the weather cools and the tourists vacate the city.

Later that night, our friends surprised me with cupcakes from a new cupcakery. They were perfect and Little Sears was so happy with the four cupcakes that Momma shared with her (there I said it, here's to the possibility that there's a baby girl abrewin').

And here's to the year ahead, which is beginning to look awfully full and mighty good!
