Lady Bug Birthday Party

Thursday, July 16, 2009
Our dear sweet friend, Sofia, celebrated her 4th birthday with a lady bug party. A local park overlooking the harbor provided a beautiful backdrop to a mellow gathering. A few must-shares from the shindig:

: Ladybug cupcakes :

: Pet rocks and lady bug crafts :

: Bug boxes personally decorated :

: Lady Bugs! Bring home some lady bugs of your own :
(Evidently putting them in the freezer preserves their captive lives a little longer. Poor dears.)

Party highlight for me was gift time. Sofia is a special little girl who I could easily sweep up and add to our family. Her desired birthday gift? A lemon tree. The genuine delight in her eyes when she saw her gift was so sweet and redeeming. Not every kid wants another plastic toy that has been over marketed.
