Sarah's Eighth Birthday

Sarah celebrated her eighth birthday with a picnic on a rainy Saturday in April, 2004.

Granted, it was the first time in eight years that the weather had not cooperated for celebrating.

Luckily, kids don't seem to mind getting wet and there was a shelter from the rain under which to gather.

No one let the rain spoil our celebration and, eventually, the rain stopped. It was not cold and it was not windy, so we enjoyed our picnic in honor of a very special Birthday Girl.
