June is now gone and I don't even feel like I had those 30-days. But, I know we did since I went to my college reunion at the beginning of the month and Little Olive turned a big 4 years old at the end of the month. The days in between were spent working, cleaning, sewing for the Fair Harbor Pine Walk Fair. Oh, and battling doctors as Little Olive didn't want the Pixo she put in her ear to come out (3 visits later, it is out).
We did a home birthday party for her on her actual day, followed by a "Birthday BBQ" which was really more for the adults to hang out and let the kiddos play in the water table. As Mr. Olive likes to say, the day of the BBQ was "hotter than snot" - there was zero breeze - and that is unusual for living three blocks from the Ocean.
She had an Oreo cake, which was delicious, and then a bunch of presents to open. I ordered the afghan from the talented Alessandra of Just Be Happy! Little Olive wanted a bunch of colors and then put together with "pink". She and I absolutely love the result - although as you can see from the pics, Little Olive was more interested in the cool piggy amiguri Alessandra included. Our nanny wanted to bring Piggy home with her one night to show a friend, and Little Olive flat-out refused to let it out of her sight!
Little Olive's Florida family sent her a Princess Pack of gloves, necklace, bracelet, ring, and purse.....you can bet she loved it because she loves the Princesses! :-)
Stay cool..........July is starting out hot-and-no-rain.....
