i have a ton (TON!!) of pictures i'd love to post but i'll just post a few of my favorites.
|james' personal VIP whale pool and whale squirts|
it worked! mommy and daddy know how to calm this kid down. good thing he didn't realize that all the smiles, laughs and chuckles were at his expense. it was so sad but so incredibly cute all at the same time. finally he ate cake. yummy cake.
after being covered in cake, it was time to cool down in the pool. yes, both of us were covered in cake and both were in much need of "bath". since the formal part of the birthday party was over, we could swim, relax and enjoy the company of our guests. our friends and family are so generous. auntie beebs (aka sugar momma from this point forward) made all the sugars, the hancocks opened their house and pool without hesitation and andrea came to capture these priceless moments from behind her lens. (she posted several collage pictures that really show off the details that made the whale theme a success.) i'm so grateful that so many family members and friends were able to endure the heat and celebrate james first year of life with us. we're one lucky family.
happy first birthday james p. sunshine! you make me happier every single day. i feel so honored to be your momma and be able to raise you around so much love and support. my wheels are already spinning for your big boy 2nd birthday shindig. happy first birthday!
