All In (Several) Day's Work

This little Greek princess turned eight today.

It took me the better part of two and a half days to get things together for this party. Either I'm slowing down or my little monster man is even more skilled than I imagined at breaking my stride.  I'll blame the latter.  

The party centered around the Greek agora (market place) and the Olympic games. We visited a pottery shop, a sandal maker, a discus designer, and a head dress craftsman. We ran relays, threw javelins, and had sword fights. It was a good day.

All smiles for cake time!

Me and my girl... Here's to another great year!
