Franklin etc.

And you thought the *Birthday post-ing was behind us...

Birthday Tradition #121 {not really}: Special Mommy/Daddy time with the birthday boy to celebrate how happy we are that he's ours. 
This year Daddy did breakfast & Momma did a date. 

Into Philly we ventured...riding elephants, chasing fountains, flying on the swings, toasting with Izze's, strolling paths of brick, giggling till our sides ached, playing "catch me", indulging our tastebuds with treats from the city, dancing - foot on foot all the way back to the car. 

Our baby is a boy. It's official. 

Pssst - Birthday's are BIG around here. We drag out the celebrations for at least a week sometimes more...{I vote for more}...the traditions are random but they're ours and we like them. 

*I'm gonna let you in on a little secret...this blog is actually a photo album. And at the end of the year I'm going to print it all out as one big photo book! {Blurb has a print your blog option!! So fun!} So, you're gonna have to bear with me from time to time if the posts seem 50 years I want to be sure to have it all I can spend a day with my 2 year old all over again. :) * 


  1. Tracey, I don't know if you've used blurb before, but... it's amazing!!! I have been blogging for about 5 yrs now and have made two big books and I am due to make a new one. They are my favorite things to read/look at. They will even include you words too if you want. So fun !!!

    1. I have used blurb on one other occasion...but not to print a blog! I am uber excited!!!!! I hear they have an instagram book too...ooh la la!

  2. What a great collection of images! I love the shot of the swing. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I love that park! I grew up near Philly and we went there all the time! So glad he had a wonderful time!

    1. Isn't it just epically wonderful?! Thank you!


Thank you for the note!
