Kian’s snowball fight – birthday party mashup

The party for my son’s sixth birthday was scheduled for last Sunday but a heavy blizzard blew in the night before and travel on the roads was treacherous.  We postponed the party to save family from driving in the storm which left Kian quite sad for a little bit.  Fortunately his friends who live nearby bundled up, came over and we all headed outside for some tobogganing on the little hill behind our house.  Not much sledding happened as the gang decided a snowball fight was a better use of their energy and time.

With smile restored and spirits high, Kian had a great time playing and the rest of us followed his lead.  Kezia helped me to return fire after the attack above but then turned her sights my way a few minutes later.

Her brother liked Kezia’s idea and joined in the attack too – Traitors!  I was worried about a full mutiny but their attentions soon turned to other targets.

With a small crisis (though rather big to a young boy) averted, we ended up having a great day and Bobbi even arranged to have some cupcakes to finish off the birthday celebrations.  Which Kian enjoyed blowing out a solitary candle on (three times as I had a couple of different images that I wanted to make in mind).

  1. Happy birthday-wishes to Kian! And what delightful photos, Christopher. I can almost feel the energy, not cold at all.

  2. The bright clothes work a treat! What a fabulous way to celebrate a birthday – my daughter and I sat in the sunshine to toast hers.

  3. Snow is hard to photograph, but you son’s picture at home is absolutely wonderful!

  4. Love the angry birds hat – plus it adds great color to the scene. Kids, snow, and color – dream subject!!

  5. It doesn’t seem long ago that you were celebrating his last birthday. Looks like fun, especially the first snow scene, and lots of snow. Ha Ha, yup, spring is just around the corner.

    • Hi Jane – we’ll see about spring and when it decides to come. As far as the birthdays go, I think they just keep coming around faster and faster.
