ONE

First there were the balloons:

And of course, there were the brothers…

(one of whom is trying mightily to go it on his own two feets)…

There was the cake and the candle with a little help in the wind blowing department from Jack…

and the eager consumption of said cake…

There were the guests, our friends and their two lovely children…

There was the rare family photo op…

And the presents! Oh boy were there ever presents!

There was the lovely and much loved Aunt Jo…

There was a walk on the river as the sun began to set…

...a free concert in the park, a co-scrapper little friend, dancing in the grass and ice cream cones…

...and of course, there was resting in the grass, and a whole day filled with love for Arlo…

Happy Birthday my sweetest boy. Every day for the past 365 days, I have thanked the universe that you are mine. Somedays I can barely keep from squeezing you flat with all the joy you are to us...instead, I bury my head into your neck, inhale deeply, and whisper, thank you.
