Happy Tuesday! I intended to get these pictures posted last night, but I ended up going to bed when the kids did. I think the exhaustion from the weekend festivities finally caught up with me. I feel so much better this morning! I have to take Bryce to his pediatrician appointment shortly (it was moved from yesterday) and luckily I have a little time to spare this morning.
Bryce had such a great party! We had well over 50 people that came from as far as Alabama to celebrate with us. That little boy is so loved! We had the party at a local park that has a huge, shaded play area with jungle gyms and swings, a smaller play area for the real little ones, and a splash pad. Of course we had to get a bounce house too. There were plenty of activities for the kids, and I think they all had a great time!
I am really irritated at the pictures I took, or should I say, didn't take. I was so busy trying to play hostess and trying to talk with everyone that I didn't get many opportunities to take pictures. I didn't get a lot of pictures of the kids playing, of our guests, or the party details. I always say I have to remember to do those things, and then it never happens. So if any of you that were there have good pictures, please feel free to send them my way.
I did get pictures of the birthday boy, and that is what really matters, right? :-) It was hard to pick a few favorites, but I managed. If you would like to see all of them, you can check out our Picasa site.
We went with a Zoo theme for the party. Here are a couple of the 43 balloons we had out at the park.
Rylie and the older kids had so much fun in the bounce house!
Uncle David was the grill master.
The kids enjoyed the splash pad. It was so hot out there, I think a couple of the adults may have enjoyed it too!
Bryce's yummy cake!
By the time we were ready for cake, Bryce was ready for a nap. He was covered with watermelon and sweaty as can be. I was wondering if he was just going to pass out in his cake.
Let the cake fun begin!
Do you ever notice how kids' eyes glaze over while they're devouring cake? I don't think I have ever been to a first birthday party where this didn't happen.
Ahhhh, that was good!
Once we got most of the icing out of Bryce's nose, ears and hair, we decided that he needed to cool off some and get refreshed. Off to the splash pad he went!
Yes, he is just in a swim diaper. His bathing suit never got taken out of the bag. Sigh.
Rylie came over to join her brother for some splashing fun.
Presents! We tried to get a picture of Bryce with all of his gifts, but he kept getting up.
And just for fun, here are a couple of cute videos for you...
Typical boy, right? Goes straight for the race car. (I have no idea why I kept calling that a truck.)
Thank you again to everyone that came out to celebrate Bryce's birthday with us! We hope everyone had a great time!
