It’s been a wonderful week of birthdays. Bob’s August birthday is the day before the Bug’s, so we’ve been celebrating for four days straight. On Wednesday we had dinner at Rolf and Daughters in Germantown and it was quite delicious.
Thursday was pre-K cupcakes and today was the actual 4 year old pirate princess party, complete with eye patches!
Everyone arrived during a thunderstorm, so the gold doubloons in the sand ship had to be moved to the front porch. And luckily, the bounce house just fit in the playroom. But we started our day at the Farmer’s Market, and I was delighted to find…
Peggy, the Parnassus Bookmobile parked right next to the food trucks! Have I told you lately how much I love Nashville? Of course I had to pre-order Ann Patchett’s new book, “Commonwealth.”
But the biggest surprise of all, was when Uncle Dave arrived from LA just before we sang Happy Birthday and cut the pink and black pirate cake; the Love Bug’s face was pure unadulterated joy! I’m glad I didn’t have my phone to snap a picture, because I loved simply experiencing that precious moment.
Tonight we played at being a scientist. One of the birthday gifts was a beginner microscope, so the Groom went outside and found a snail for us to investigate – after our tea party of course.
BTW, have I mentioned Princess Awesome dresses for girls who don’t exactly need to be rescued? http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/6654034
My pirate princess is sleeping sweetly, and I’m about to turn in – it’s been a whirlwind week in the Music City. Finding Peggy was the icing on the cake of my daughter’s new home and my grand daughter’s birthday.
