Happy First Birthday

The boys turned 1 today. We had a busy family party on Saturday night to celebrate. My parents and Grandma even came from Idaho. It was so good to seem them and watch them play with the babes.

The Birthday hats didn't last long. Which I'm sure isn't too surprising. However, I was impressed that most of the guests wore theirs throughout the party.

Andy thoroughly enjoyed his first taste of cake. He was so excited and confused that food doesn't have to taste like pureed vegetables.

Whereas Ben would have preferred to eat pureed vegetables. He liked to play with the cake but puckered his face when he took his first and only bite. I've seen him enjoy a lemon more than he did the chocolate cake.

Andy loved all of his toys. I had no idea they'd have so much fun.

Ben was excited to play with the with his toys and the deflated balloons the next morning. That was until he got completely tangled in all of the ribbons.

In case your wondering, I didn't make a fancy cake for the boys. I ran out of time and energy so instead I made cupcakes. Not super exciting, but I've got many birthdays to make up for it.
