Mirabelle's Birthday Celebration

Here are Mirabelle and her younger sister, Odille. These two lovely girls are the daughters of my very close friends, Lance and Melissa. They live only a few blocks from me in Brooklyn. Melissa & I also share a work studio in my building. She is an amazing photographer. I will be profiling her work here soon. Her parents, Nancy & Bob Zexter hosted Mirabelle's delightful birthday party at their home in Swansea, Massachusettes!

The Zexter house is located on a public golf course, which is beautifully maintained. Besides seeing players out on the course, there are plenty of bunnies, birds and field mice, too. It is quite a charming place to visit.

Above some amateurs on the field ;) A charity tournament was played on Saturday, the day of the party, making it seem extra festive!

I'm only giving you a sneak peek at their home in this post, because there is much to show. As antique dealers, Bob & Nancy have a very unique home. Above is a mural Nancy painted years ago in one of the bedrooms.

Here Melissa is whipping up the cake batter after a quick swim at the pool that morning. She's wearing the high school t-shirt of her good friend since that time, Leslie Wolf (ie the Woofer ;)

Odille waits patiently, yet looking a bit forlorn here...

After numerous attempts to light all the candles in the breeze, one seems to be enough for Mirabelle to make her wish!

This is Rosie, she's as sweet as she is big!! That's saying a lot, too. She belongs to Phil (Melissa's brother) his wife, Kelly and their kids, Lily and Ethan. Think she's eyeing some cake here.

The Groucho Marx glasses were a big hit, but now it's time for quiet contemplation...

Apparently, Odille was excited about the pinata all week and time was closing in on him here.

I've spared you the violence, but only because I was videotaping the event while Lance held tight to the pinata. Unassuming little children took swipes at his head and body until he crashed to the ground. The candy was snatched up in mere seconds!

Noah was the youngest that day and I found him endlessly entertaining & cute to watch!!

Love this moment above as Odille makes a big bubble :)

It was a perfect little celebration on a sunny Saturday in Swansea!!

Mirabelle loves Playmobil, like most kids here age. I enjoy it myself!

HaPpY bIrThDaY MiRaBeLlE!!!!!!!
I will be posting more on this visit since Bob was kind enough to take my mom & me all around Rhode Island. He and Nancy could not have been more gracious! We both had a wonderful time!! Thank You again :D
