It sure was a long day.. His birthday happened to land perfectly on a Saturday, yes I do mean perfectly which ends up being more like so not... it was a good day, but just a really busy one. Had tons of things going on that day.. Church activity that couldn't be missed, a friend's 80th birthday celebration that couldn't be missed either, and Owen's Birthday Party, we finally decided to do it in the evening so everything else would fit, and so he would be able to take a nap before his party.
His day started with Birthday Breakfast :)
He is so funny, I think he wanted to eat the candle and all, he wasn't sure why Abuelita kept trying to blow it on his face :p.
We had a great time at the Ward BBQ/play day, it was nice, a bit windy but thankfully not cold, wasn't that warm either but enough to get a little sunburn.. lol. We had yummy food, got to watch the kids play games and the adults and kids play soccer & frisbee. Owen had a blast in the grass trying to walk on it and falling, mostly crawling to chase the balls that were around. grass not so flat for little boys. and Yes he can walk! He started walking at 11 months :D so fun!
|His mini nap, he was so tired|
Owen was so tired from the ward activity that he had fallen asleep on the way there, once we got there he woke up. and then he could walk all he wanted. He wanted to run it was funny and I could see him tripping over his little feet cuz he kept going so fast.
And off we went back home, there was a whole lot to do! Riley took a nap, he was so pooped from all the play at the ward activity. When you are not in shape it can really affect you a morning of hard play. Put Owen down for a nap, then it was such a mess! lots to clean up, then put Birthday stuff up, had to run and get the cake from the store, thankfully my mom got home and took care of the kitchen while I went to the store. I was overwhelmed.. Thankfully people usually show up late and by then things were good, there is only so much one can do and I had to remember that it was perfect for Owen, he would love it no matter what I got or didn't get to do.
|Costco Cakes are awesome! So glad I didn't try doing one myself.|
It was short and fun, had planned it that way. Didn't want him to get overwhelmed by doing a big thing and it being too long, he is only 1!
It was fun having the kids play some games have some yummy snacks and then time for presents!
|The big kids sure liked this one! Owen picked something else after to play and all the big kids were huddled around this one :p|
|Thanks everyone for making his day special and all the gifts. He got so many toys!|
|Loved how he was curious about every toy :)|
It was a perfect day! it was His 1st Birthday!! :D Can't believe a year ago on that day he made his way into this world and made us parents! :)
