We had the most perfect, wonderful, glorious celebration of Addie's first birthday this past weekend! The weather was just amazing, the company was so much fun, and the partyin' was a blast! I had a really hard time narrowing down the pictures to post, so this one's pretty long!
We were so excited to have Auntie M. and Mr. Micah come in town and stay with us Friday night before the party!! We took these pictures on Saturday morning while Micah and Brandon were planting spring flowers in our flower beds!
When everyone started to arrive, balloons and flags were tied on to bikes and trikes and strollers and wagons....and the birthday party parade was about to begin....
And we were off!
At last, the birthday party parade arrived at the park!
And the birthday girl got to do her favorite thing: SWING!
Then it was time for CAKE! Our sweet friend Jeanette made the most AMAZING, DELCIOUS, BEAUTIFUL cake for our celebration! We all sang. I cried. I can’t believe she is really a year old! When we set the cake in front of her, she wasn’t sure what to think. I broke it apart a little bit, and she still just stared at it. Turns out, she wasn’t really interested. :-( But that’s ok, the vanilla ice-cream was a different story!! She loved it!!!
Addie enjoyed seeing lots of friends and family members and “chatted” with each one of them….
When we got home from the park, there was a SUPER FUN surprise waiting for our birthday girl! Her friend Rylee was waiting at the house with her mom and dad! Brandon took them for a spin in the wagon. Addie kept bending over to look at the holes in the wagon.
Then the two girlfriends had a blast playing with Addie's new fridge phonics.
We all slept really great Saturday night! What a super time we had! We could NOT have pulled it off without the help of so many. We have VERY HAPPY memories of this day and will always treasure the celebration of our sweet girl’s first year! Sniff, sniff! Watch out YEAR NUMBER TWO, ‘cause here we come! :-)
