Now that we have all those pesky details out of the way, we are ready for the fun part of Carter’s Blue Bear 1st Birthday Extravaganza.
And what is more fun than cake smashing?
Hmmm this looks…interesting.
Maybe I should eat it with my face.
No, I am civilized, a spoon is the only way to go But what crap is this mom?
Maybe I will just feed it to everyone else. I am a good host. Anyone want some partially chewed and smashed cake?
I’m one…but in a sugar stupor.
I do like cake!
When we got to gifts, our lack of nap started to show.
Especially since his extended family spoiled him rotten so there was a whole lot of opening going on. He got so many amazing things that we had to put half them away to be brought out in a couple of months. Good thing the basement play area is almost up and ready for fun. He did open this bad boy from his aunt.
And rode it around the house. He did not have the whole turning thing down though so it was much better out in the yard. Minus the fact it was 104 degrees.
Yep that is what a drought and extreme heat does to your grass even when you have sprinklers. It was a little crunchy out there, but nothing his ATV could not handle.
We finished off the day with a taste of root beer for the first time. I get mom of the year for that one, but look on his face when he felt the bubbles was priceless.
Carter has had a great year and his party was the perfect way to celebrate it. Happy first birthday Carterman! Now I am going to try not to cry about no longer being able to classify this post in the “baby” category…
