pearl turned 3 the end of july. unfortch, every kmart in the state has taken out its photo booth. dumb! i nearly died when i discovered this. luckily, a shady amusement park in arizona came to the rescue. in color, no less!
we threw pearl a cousins party with a treasure hunt/nature walk. it was hotter than blazes and a little disorganized and i think more stressful than my own wedding but my 6-year-old nephew ezra told me several times it was "the most fantastic party!" so i'll take that and run with it! (to chuck e. cheese next year.)
i love you pearl. you make my life interesting. i can't wait for you to thank me in your best actress oscar speech. keep practicing those dramatics all day, every day and i know you'll get there!
