Birthday Party

The party was a big success. We had about 25 people total.

There was a brief hiccup in the morning when the lawn mower wouldn't start. But David borrowed a neighbor's mower and did the front and we moved the party up there, so it was okay. There's more shade there anyway.

Robbie did well. He loved the other kids and paid mostly no attention to the other adults.

He didn't really eat any cake, but he did mash his hands in it a bit and got frosting everywhere.

After a fiasco trying to order a fish cake from a local bakery, my friend Lisa swooped in and saved the day and made an amazing one for us and even brought a smash cupcake for Robbie. She totally rules.

Robbie was tuckered out after the party and even took a 2 hour nap. (Which is unheard of for him.)

He got lots of great toys and a ton of books, and a few outfits. We didn't get ANY duplicates and Robbie loves his stuff.

Without further ado- Pictures!

I am one today.

Clare has pretty hair!

Robbie doesn't need cake. He has a bib.

The amazing cake!

Smash cake.

Hmm, this feels different.

No, I DON'T want to eat any, mommy!

The aftermath.

Great-grandma, grandpa, Robbie & Mommy.

What'd I get, Mommy?

I'm the best present ever!

Chillin' in my new sunglasses.

Hi Grandpa!

Are all these people here to see ME?

Relaxin' after the party.
