Today our boy Wilder Lake completes his 4th trip around the sun!

Happy Birthday to you, you silly, wonderful, loving, sweet, imaginative little one!

I hope you have a great day and a wonderful year.  I'm looking forward to celebrating with your friends and family around a backyard campfire with s'mores and a fresh blueberry tart.

I think the wish Lake had of decorating for his birthday with a Christmas tree and the electric train is pretty great, and might be the start of a new tradition.  It's strange, but in a good way, to see those things displayed in the Summertime.  It's manipulating my relationship with the winter holiday automatics, assumptions, and traditions and making room for more of a sense of celebration, pleasure, and happiness.  Horray!

You are a bright star, little Lakey!  We love you!
