Happy Birthday, Chloe!

On this day four years ago, I was in labour at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Eventually, I would get the blessed epidural, and hours later, during primetime television viewing hours, I would give a big heave-ho that would introduce Chloe into the world.

Last Sunday, we had Chloe's birthday party. The day started out looking like a piece of shit, but by afternoon, it was actually quite sunny. So we were able to grill up some meat and fish and let the kids run amok outside. Lots of Chloe's little friends showed up: Lily, Maia, Quintin and his little bro, Marcus, Saya, Jordy, William, and Joshua. And of course there was Mylo, who wasn't as psyched about the birthday girl's moment in the spotlight. But he will get his soon. . .

{what we always get: a fruit cake (sometimes a mango cake) from Anna's Cake House on Fraser}

{candles blown out, let's eat!}

{PRESENTS!!! of course, a girl needs help from her friends}

{Mylo's in the background, pushed out of the bubble of girl power, looking like, "OMG, what-EVER!!!!"

Happy Bday, Chloe Bean!
