Today I would like to reflect on a very special day in my son's life.....his first birthday! The baby, as I like to refer to him, turned one last June and we celebrated with family and friends. The celebration was outdoors at my parent's house. I knew that I wanted an outdoor party and it made sense to have it at their house since they have a lot more land than I do. It was a beautiful summer day. He had an Elmo themed party so I made an Elmo cake. We prepared hamburgers, hotdogs, coleslaw and baked beans....yummy!
The baby wasn't too sure what he was supposed to do with the cake but after a while he figured it out! He had cake from head to toe! We literally had to give him a bath before he opened his gifts. Notice in the picture below he is in a different outfit and his hair is wet.
My dear friend and co-worker Stephanie put together a video of all his pictures from birth to 12 months and put them to music. We played the video at his party for all the family to see. It was very sweet. Thanks Steph!
He enjoyed opening all the gifts but I think he enjoyed playing with all the paper more. Go figure!
The Hubby and I got him a Radio Flyer wagon for his birthday. It is a two-seater with seatbelts as well as a canopy attachment for shade. He loves it and to this day he enjoys going for afternoon walks with mommy and daddy in it.
It was a great day!
