Monthly Stills | July 2014

July was full of many things -- vacation, fallen trees, a third birthday. 

I could write out our trip to Colorado or the tree that fell over in our front yard while we were gone, but instead, let's talk about frosting and balloons, and bounce houses, and friends.

On July 12, we celebrated Lucinda's 3rd birthday at The Vintage House. It was the perfect spot last year, so we decided to do a repeat! Dinner included bbq sandwiches, a variety of chilled salads, and an amazing cake by Angie Wong. She created a multi-layered pink ombre cake that I then attached rice paper butterflies to. Lauren Bradshaw was there to capture images from the party for us! And, the kids loved the balloons created by Kelly Potter.

We thank all our friends and family who could join us for Lu's 3rd. It was a fun, if sweaty, afternoon!

Lucinda collected over 160 new children's books to donate to Reach Out and Read Kansas City!

See all the photos here.

Lu with her many books! Yep, they're all there.
