This cool kid had quite the birthday weekend!

This is 5… silly, sweet, sensitive, kind, thoughtful, creative, curious, persistent, and Pokémon-loving! 🙂

Quinn’s 5th birthday celebration started with a family breakfast at Lucky Finn Cafe.

His cousins from Seattle were visiting, so we wrangled the whole crew and headed down to Scituate to one of our favorite spots.

(Can we talk about their matching outfits?!)

Once Quinn finished eating his almond croissant, it was time to open all sorts of birthday presents, including his first set of Pokemon cards with tin and Pokemon book set. He was pumped!!

After that, we drove out to Funny Farm for a fun day by the pool. FYI: My rainbow hat is from the RUN PROUD line at Brooks. I lovvvveee it. It’s definitely going to become my go-to summer hat!

Our pool day also included a birthday pinata, which was a HUGE hit with the kids!!

It was quite the day and sweet Quinn was all tuckered out by the end!

Quinn falling asleep in the pool was beyond adorable, but probably not the safest. Plus, he really needed another application of sunscreen, so I wrapped him in a towel and brought him outside. Usually, he’d wake up and fight a nap, but he was donezo! He snoozed for almost 2 hours!

On Quinn’s actual birthday (June 9th), we started the day with a trip to Starbucks (just the three of us) where Quinn opened the rest of his presents. Skyrail Wall was definitely a favorite!

Mid-morning (we totally ate ice cream at 10:30 AM), we stopped by Kimball Farm, which is always a favorite destination when we’re in our hometown.

Later that afternoon, it was time for Papi’s wedding. We joked that Papi threw an epic 5th birthday party for Quinn! 🙂 We all had a great time celebrating the happy couple. Quinn really loved getting down on the dance floor! Papi and Lori actually got married at the same place where Mal and I did, so it was fun visiting after all of these years.

After such a full weekend of activities, it’s hard to believe Quinn still has a birthday pool party planned for this Saturday… and the celebration continues!!



  1. Hi Tina, happy belated birthday to Quinn and congrats to your father in law! I love the jeans you wore to Lucky Finn Cafe, where did you get them? 🙂
