We celebrated Mady's 1st birthday on Saturday -- some of us more than others. I remember most of the evening up until the shrimp on the barbie. Things are a bit spotty after that. Your daughter only turns 1 once right? No excuses -- I got what I deserved. Sara even washed my feet for pete's sake. Read more on her blog.
We had a great turn out for our little girl's birthday. Immediate family, co-workers, close friends & neighbors, as well as an army of mosquitoes. They had a field day on us. The weather cleared...making for a perfect day. Special thanks to Bob for allowing us to borrow his tent. Taking up nearly 3/4 of our yard, it made for a festive time and allowed us to enjoy a late night thunderstorm under it's protective cover.
Henry wasn't happy being couped up in the basement. He bit at least 3 people over the course of the day (that we know of) and frightened at least 1/2 dozen more. So so sorry...Caroline, Lauren and Jess. He's really not a bad dog -- just highly misunderstood.
A big thanks to Sara for all of her hard work planning Mady's party. Things really came together. I definitely have the easy role (taking photos) when it comes to these shin-digs. You did an awesome job sweetheart. I love you so much! One day, Mady will look back on the photos and mementos from this party and realize what a great Mom she has.
Hope you enjoy the photos...
