First Birthday recap

Kenton’s first birthday was AWESOME. Today, I’ll recap what we did on his actual birthday – Thursday, May 31. Tomorrow, I’ll be back with a recap of his mustache party from Saturday.

He started the day with his first gift… a bubble machine…

…which was clearly a huge hit! That kid loves bubbles and is always pointing at our bubble bottles, saying, “More? More?” Thankfully, the new machine takes the work out of bubbles for mommy and daddy.

The bubbles were followed by a first birthday breakfast of champions – his first donut.

After a nap, it was off to the pool for some quality time in the H2O.

Then, after another nap (we’re still on a two-nap schedule)… it was off to a fancy dinner

Thankfully, the people around us didn’t seem to mind a “chatty” almost-toddling-toddler in their vicinity.

We finished up the day snapping some photos…

It was PERFECT. Given the belleh the babe is sporting in that photo, perhaps we should lay off the donuts and ice cream?

NAH! After all, this photo basically summarizes his party:

AWESOMENESS.  More tomorrow…
