Saturday was my little monkey’s birthday and despite the heat she had a good day overall. We’ve recently had lots of houseguest staying with us so she’s been plenty spoiled, but come on how could you not love this face….

Her favorite summer activity is swimming so of course we did lots of that. She took a break and laid out in style of course!

I made her a super simple cake and she LOVED it!
