April’s flower filled birthday celebration!

This weekend, Matt and I traveled up the boring I-5 to visit foggy San Francisco and celebrate April’s 30th birthday! April is somewhat of a hippie. Even though she missed the 70s by about ten years, she’s always been a flower child at heart. Her birthday party was held in Dahlia Dell at Golden Gate Park, a lush green park on the lawn of the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers. Here’s some pictures of the special day! Most of these were taken by my mom of the talented Lynnette Joy Photography.

She wore a daisy chain in her hair.

My brother's girlfriend Alison made this amazing cake. It was delicious!

The Double Chin Duo is together at last! Funny how we look so much alike yet have some major differences, right? Do you think we look alike? Some people think we look like twins!

It was great to see my best friend Katelyn and my Dad. (PS: See that little hip curve I've got?! Always a sure sign I'm slowly shrinking. Woohoo!)

I'm not sure if you've ever seen the Double Chin Brother! This is our sweet little brother, who is almost 25 but will always be 12 years old to us.

I enjoyed some yummy treats during the party like pork ribs, macaroni salad and a cupcake, but I tried not to drink my calories. This picture was actually taken in anticipation of another post I'll write this week about my upcoming break up with diet soda :(

We had all kinds of entertainment, from making floral crowns to a ukele player!

  1. Looks like a lot of fun. I just made a daisy chain like that for my stepdaughter the other weekend and got some adorable pictures too :) Your comment about breaking up with soda struck a nerve for me. That is something I direly need to do too!

  2. Happy Birthday April! And it’s nice to see pics of the lovely Lofgren clan!

    Also, breaking up with diet coke is hard…but you’ll find that after having gone without it for a really long time, the aspartame will start to give you a headache (which makes it easier to skip!)
