Birthday Photography-Mia

My little Mia is not so little anymore – she turned 6 yesterday!
Next year is big school, and school uniforms..
We had a great celebration in a stunning big park – with our ‘Woodlands Picnic Party’, it seemed perfect! The weather was really grotty when we woke up, but it turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day!

I can’t stress enough how important it is to document these special days, they only come once a year! I did spend a fair amount behind the camera, but you know, a shoemakers’s child never has shoes.. this time, I snapped a few, enough to capture the day…

I’m a bit of a stickler when it comes to party food for kids.. We gave them fairly healthy food.. pretzels, carrot & celery sticks, cheese, muffins, and they each received a picnic pack.. a healthy roll, and a small treat.. I must tell you.. it was all gobbled up..

On her ‘real’ birthday on Sunday, we went to try out the infamous Wakaberry! It did not disappoint! So much for the healthy food ; but is is frozen yoghurt!
