Sunday Surf: Celebration extravaganza

Welcome to the Sunday Surf, a tour of the best blogposts I've read throughout the week.

fifth birthday sundae
Celebrating with a free sundae for my FIVE-year-old!
Well. It's been an eventful past couple weeks. I missed last Sunday Surf because my computer died. As it turned out, it was an $18 fix, but several days in the making.

Alrik and I had taken the bus to Portland to visit Ms. Amy Anktangle (yes, that's her real name),1 so when my computer went kablooey, I just had to chill out, disconnect from blogginess, and help her with her garden and enjoy her lovely family. (Can you tell I wasn't too sad?)

In the meantime, two more occasions joined Alrik's first birthday: Mikko's fifth birthday, and Sam's and my fourteenth anniversary. So yesterday we had a beach party to celebrate it all!

Despite the sunburns for the pale folk among us, and sand in strange places, it was a supremely lovely time. I just can't believe I have a five- and a one-year-old!

The links! Lots and lots of goodness saved up for you all:

I really needed a couple of these, thank you! (The messy thing and nursing in a carrier.)

What a great why to celebrate all those great milestones. A beach party I think is the way to go!!!
