Birthday Mermaid!

We went straight to the beach the morning of her birthday and she was surprised with not one but two mermaid tails!!

She ran into a few friends at the beach and they got to try out the pink tail.

Baby on theme with his Flock of Seagulls hair hahaha

Getting a Stephen King vibe from this seagull

In the afternoon more family arrived and we enjoyed…


Vanilla cake with lemon curd filling and homemade buttercream icing. The decorations are Ghirardelli white chocolates that we made…

…plus a few fondant sea creatures. There are also homemade sugar cookies on there as well. The top two tiers are actually rice krispie treats. Cake inspiration from the ocean (obviously) and also Mako Mermaids (show on Netflix) and also from watching those dessert competition shows (especially Zumbo’s Just Desserts!) !

This moon mobile she got has a very Mako Mermaid vibe!!

The birthday fun continued into the evening with a trip to Old Orchard Beach!

(By day)

 And night!

Best birthday ever!

    Seven – wow! HB to ‘Zilla! Great mermaid costumes – kids have the best toys/things these days. ;)
    Little One is growing fast, as is Spy, who is almost man-size. I can imagine he is going to be a tall one!
    I expect it has been a great summer with all the trips to the beach. School must start soon. Are they excited?

      I know, I would’ve LOVED to have those mermaid tails as a kid. They are excited to start school; next week for the Spy and then after labor day for birthday girl :). It has been a wonderful summer; we love it here!!
