It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to.....no, seriously, It was the BEST birthday ever!

This has been the most amazing birthday!  We went to the Renaissance Festival- something I look forward to all year long!  And best of all, our friends Kelly and Jim moved here this Winter and we were able to introduce it to them!  Kelly is a professional photographer and I was lucky enough to reap the benefits of her talent- one more birthday treat- she took all these wonderful pictures!
Garrett and Caroline

Me and the fam....
Oh I WANTED this little critter- but he was $75.00, so I just posed with him ;)

look aren't they GREAT!

What a GREAT day- I had SO much FUN!

Happy birthday - it looks like a really interesting day out and you looked like you had a lot of fun which is the point on your birthday!! You look too young to have kids that age too by the way! And your daughters are sooo like you!

Happy belated birthday. I think I wished you a happy early birthday the other day, and now I'm a bit late. But it was fun to see what you did to enjoy your day. I can tell by the smile on your face how much FUN you had. And I loved the photo of you pigging out, with your pigging out food and healthy drink. Again, glad you had a lovely birthday. You look SO happy.

I LOVE the beginnings of your sisterhood travelling journal..such a brilliant and I ADORE the bit about choosing your favourite colour...Definitely comparable to choosing a star from the heavens :)

Happy Birthday Stephanie! What a day. IT does look like a lot of fun. The closest I have ever come to showing my work at one of these festivals was the Yankee Peddler Festival in Ohio. Theme festivals are quite wonderful. You are beaming with happiness. Great photography by your friend.
