Birthday Party at Sequoia Park

We celebrated Riley's 4th birthday at Sequoia Park in Eureka, CA in early September. A bunch of our friends came out for pizza and chocolate cake. The weather was "record-breakingly" beautiful and warm. I love Humboldt in September.

If you are ever unsure what to get a four year old boy for his birthday, just ask Chris Panza. This stomp rocket was removed from the box as soon as possible and put to good use within a matter of seconds. Adults and kids alike enjoyed seeing how high in the sky they could shoot a rocket.

Like a good boyscout, Daniel Gent climbed a tree, probably around 120 feet high, to try to rescue a wayward rocket...but was ever found. Thank you anyway Daniel!

More than any boy could want (or ever need)

Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for such a great day!

I love seeing Abram sleeping on all of your beautiful homemade blankets. I made a little patch quilt myself for Evan but sadly I didn't make the seams wide enough and it fell apart in the wash. I guess I will just have to try again.
