We drove into the city in the morning and returned home well past dark. It all started with a birthday party...
with water play
and sand play
Then we ran errands, including trips to two different pet stores and purchasing all the supplies we'll need to get our 26 one-day-old chicks off to a good start when they arrive. Then over to a friend's house to play and make music (mamas, too).
and a summer solstice celebration at the very same place that we celebrated winter solstice.

another quiet moment by the lake
and finally, the lighting of the fire.
And a drive home with my oldest, still awake, full of giggles and confidences.
A day, filled to the brim, with old friendships, new beginnings, and lots of good, sparkly fun. Now I need another day to recover :)
