Without wanting to make it sound like I spent the first year wishing time away (because I certainly didn’t!), I really looked forward to the first birthday party. I’ve been sitting here staring at the cursor trying to figure out how to explain it, and I am honestly speechless. It was a beautiful day, we had lots of friends come celebrate with us and the babies were (of course) a hit. I spent more time than I like to admit wondering if we’d ever get the chance to do this. We did, and in a word, it was perfect.
Enjoy the plethora of pictures that I think convey the message better than I could 🙂
Thank you to all the family and friends who helped and celebrated with us. Our babies are now toddlers and we are off on to another part of this adventure.

Looks like they had a blast! It’s crazy how time flies – our littlest one turns two next month! Yikes!

Oh boy! How was his/ her second year?

Oh, she’s a monster! LOL. She is constantly on the move and looking for anything she can get in trouble with. She’s got a room full of toys, but prefers to play with house plants, sharp objects, etc.

Looks like a blast! They are so darn cute. Imagine soon you’ll have to run after two toddlers!

Beautiful! Happy birthday babies! I know what you mean about not having words. We had a party, too, and I haven’t figured out how to write about it.

Was this at your community’s pool? I’ve been starting to plan A&L’s so I’m curious what others have done. Looks like it was a great day 🙂

Yes it was our neighborhood pool. It turned out really well there!
