Ebby masterminded the agenda for her birthday-day.
She generously invited Bubbe to take her shopping. Apparently I am no fun to shop with. At least for clothes. If she wanted to spend the day looking at housewares or art supplies, that would be a different story. I was however allowed to gift her with spending money...
Before she left, we had to do our traditional birthday portraits in the backyard.
The night before (at the Family Party), Bubbe gifted her with the top she's wearing and these:
One of my faves:
But these may be a more accurate reflection of her personality:
After a successful trip to Legacy Place for shopping and lunch, Ebby returned home just in time to welcome Danielle for Phase 2 of her birthday celebration. And Danielle, well, she brought BALLOONS. Time for another photo shoot!
I love capturing action shots...though I'm not always successful.
I ended up with plenty of keepers though, like this one:
The next stop for Ebby's birthday caravan of fun: Duxbury Beach.
Ebby wasn't the only photogenic thing on the beach that night...
The light, the sand and the water provided a lovely backdrop for just a few more pictures of Ebby & Danielle.
Adorable ones like this...
And a few crazy ones, like these:
Um, that one was their idea--I just take the photos ☺.😃
Of course it wouldn't be a birthday on the beach (or anywhere, really) without cupcakes.
She may have been wishing that the wind would die down so we wouldn't have to stage the photo of her blowing out her birthday candle.
Or maybe not.
Whatever your birthday wish Ebby, I hope it comes true!
