crazy-hat birthday party

On Saturday the 8th I turned 27 years old. That is crazy to me. Rich and I spent the day riding bikes on the boardwalk and decorating for the party with fresh flowers and bright yellow balloons.
The theme of the party was crazy hats! Juli came to visit from PA and chose a leopard print cap and I opted for birthday-style tiara. This is a photo of us awkwardly "hugging."
Rich's parents came and his dad had this amazing chapeau with seagull feather adornments.
My mom also came and had some vintage blue plumage and we took a picture with her phone.
I left the camera with Dave and Colleen.
Group shot with my girls and AJ photo bombing.

Juli took this of me blowing out the candles on my cake!
It was a really great birthday, and I mostly forgot to take pictures because I was having so much fun.


  1. Rich took pictures of me running out to the car to get them, I didn't think he really would when I asked and then he shows up with a carload of bright yellow balloons...my brain could not handle.
