Birthday Weekend

Here are some pictures from the birthday weekend in Conway. Rhianwen had a lot of fun with family and friends. (The previous post has more reflective notes.) Uncle Skipper, Aunt Clara, Brooks (Clara's boyfriend), Great Grandma and Great Grandpa, Grandma Nanny Kim, Grandpa, a new baby friend, and his mama and grandma (mommy's new friends)were all there to celebrate and make the day extra memorable.

Celebrating with new friends.

Grandma Nanny Kim and Grandpa had stayed up late the night before making a special Mitford series Orange Marmalade Cake. Delicious!
Orange Marmelade Cake!

The Carnage (also her tennis balls from Uncle Christopher and Sarah).

Enjoying Uncle Skipper's way cool card with Great Grandma.

She seemed to like Great Grandpa as long as he sang to her but didn't know what to think of him if he wasn't singing!

Brooks (the main photographer...all the good pics are his ;0) and Rhi.

I wish I had thought to take a group pic on that day. Oh well!

Rhianwen also tried her first bit of Coke that weekend.

Other firsts: She finally got to see the beach and ocean!!! She absolutely loved it. She would run to the water, run back to the beachy dry sand, run back to the water, wallow in the waves, try to drink the sea, lick her fingers, eat sand. She didn't even care if the waves knocker her down!

Being entertained on the way to the beach.

Loving it.

"I must return to the sea!"


Family picture before we headed back to Durham.


  1. I absolutely love the expression on your face in the picture with the birthday cake! It looks like you are willing her to blow hard enough to get the candles out! Ha!

  2. Looks like the beach was so much fun. I would have loved to have seen her experiencing that. I can't wait to take Katelyn!

  3. It's amazing she wasn't afraid of the waves. She's got Wally's intrepid spirit and Eowyn's guts. That's fer shore.
