Calla’s fifth birthday!

It’s so hard to believe that Calla girl is five years old! She celebrated her birthday yesterday and we had her party on Sunday at the park across from our house. All of her classmates from preschool came, along with some of her other good friends. This year we decided on a field day theme. The kids had a blast running through our obstacle course and doing a water balloon toss. We also set up a frisbee golf basket that the kids could use. It was so much fun to have some organized games, but also just give the kids time to run around the soccer field playing freeze tag, which Calla calls Frozen tag. She always seems to get to be Elsa!? I’ll be sharing a great DIY project tomorrow from her party. Stay tuned!

Last night, the four of us headed out for a birthday picnic. It was such a gorgeous night out, I thought, why not go do it, since some years it’s snowing on Calla’s birthday. Sitting above town last night it was hard not to feel incredibly lucky – lucky to live in Crested Butte and lucky to have my family.

aliceandlois.comWe don’t have very many photos of the four of us, since Alex is usually behind one of his cameras. Seemed like the perfect night to take this family selfie 🙂

Happy birthday sweet Calla. My wish for you is that you always carry the amazing zest you have for life, stay as brave as you are, and follow your adventurous spirit always. There’s no doubt you will be singing and dancing along the way… I love you to the moon and back.
