|Lily thought it was great. Great Aunt Becky, (AKA Becky the Great) thought it was a little chilly!|
And for the toddlers there was a water table to splash in as well as a wading pool.
|But in the little pool, the water was great!|
|Cousin Dylan at the workbench|
|Cousins Lulu and Maya join Lily in the playhouse.|
|Uncle Dooger accompanies Lily for her debut. Just give her a minute and she'll be okay.|
Lily insisted that Uncle Dooger get her up from her nap for her dramatic entrance to the party. It took her a few minutes to warm up. I think she was a little shy waking up to a backyard full of party guests. (You'll notice the boo-boo on her lip from a tumble earlier in the week. This did not make for the best photographs, but even with a boo-boo on her lip, I think she's an absolute doll.)
|Oops. Wardrobe Malfunction|
|The Smash Cake|
|Ready, set, smash!|
|What's that? I can't hear you. I have cake in my ear.|
As host, my son did whatever he had to do to keep the guests entertained. Some guests enjoyed being part of the four-headed monster walk.
I think they all must have had good naps that day before they arrived.
And he enjoyed being passed from person to person as he mingled with his guests, giving everyone a little face time.
It was a great time. Mom's sandals had been left a little too close to the high chair. Filled with leftover cake, one might say it was a cakewalk. I didn't make that one up. I think it was Bill. groan.
Sister Lily was, as always, the loving big sister was also the assistant hostess with the mostest.
|Happy Birthday kisses.|
|Playing with Grampa in the morning before the party was just the beginning of great visit.|
