Celebrating Reece





This was Reece's big birthday surprise...play stands and play clips, made with love by his dad. I also added a few new play silks to his collection. He was surprised and so happy to see it. He got right to work creating, playing and enjoying his birthday gift.

Later in the day my parents, Reece's Godparents and my niece, who was staying with my parents for the weekend, joined us for a lovely afternoon hike and then a late lunch back at our home.













We tend to keep celebrations simple in our home, enjoying the things we love with the people we love. Being in nature, sharing a meal and enjoying good company was the perfect way to celebrate my little man.

Reece will be four tomorrow. The three of us will spend the day together, not totally sure what we will do, but it really doesn't matter, just being together, enjoying time together and celebrating our little man is enough . We can't wait!

  3. Happy Birthday to Reece and happy birthing day to you Kim.
    I love the playstands and clips, what an interesting idea and one I will be showing my husband.
    I hope you have the best day. I think spending time with a four year old is the greatest!

  6. Amazing! What a wood worker you have! I feel like if we had one of those play spaces I would only have toys in there and that's it. Then there would be nothing else around the house really simple. I'm glad your celebration went so well! :)

    1. Thanks KC. I definitely lucked out, Justin is very talented in the wood working department. That is not a play space, that is Reece's bedroom, he just doesn't have a bed :) At least not yet...it is arriving on Wednesday.
