Turtle's 1st Birthday Party!

Turtle's first birthday was a lot of fun! It was totally last minute since we moved on his birthday, and almost didn't do anything! I originally wanted a turtle theme, but ended up with a Bubble themed party - and let me just say, I could totally have a Bubble party EVERY party! It's was a big hit, and with the good ol' bubble maker, the kids were good. to. go! And the adults got to chat and just watch all the kids have a blast!


We let Monkey dig into his cake on his first birthday... so we let Turtle do it too... and holy smokes! It was so stinkin' fun watching him make a mess! He was pretty reserved at first... but we eventually had to cut him off because brotha' man was out of control! haha...  but he loved every second of it!


My favorite Picture of the event!

Yep! That's a Turtle Cake. Costco rocks my socks!


Notice the present he's standing on! He still doesn't quite understand that the gift is inside the box... I don't think he even knew that the gift was for him! Anyway, he was content to climb on the box and clap for everyone. He did it on every gift. Even the smaller gift! It was darling! Eventually, the cousins had to show him how it goes, and pretty much unwrapped his gifts for him! He didn't mind. :)

Check out this pool my sister sent all the way from Hawaii! Yes, that's a zebra slide! and no, there's no water in it.  Tomorrow we're going to test it out for real.


The weather was perfect, and it was a low-stress, way-fun party!
