Patrick's 1st Birthday Party, Round 2

Wow.  Just wow.  What an amazing birthday and party-filled weekend for our little man!  His Muppet Party on Saturday was fabulous, and then my lovely parents threw Patrick another first birthday party yesterday at their house for all of the extended family.

My mom did an awesome job with the decorations (a lot of them reused (so smart mama! from our Saturday party) and the food was great--a taco bar!  Patrick loved chowing down on the avocados, diced tomatoes, ground beef, cheese, olives, grandma's jello salad, and black beans.  This kid will EAT ANYTHING, just like his daddy.  I sure hope this lasts.






This was another great party for our little man--he sure loved digging into his green cake (and then covering his hands and shirt in frosting!) and dropping pieces on the floor for Scooter (even though Scooter could not attend--he was too busy preparing for his own birthday on May 5th).



The grandmas lovingly held Patrick's hands back (little boy wanted to touch that bright candle light on his cake!) while we sang "Happy Birthday" to him.  They also helped him blow out his candle too {heart melting!}.

Patrick made another haul with all of the gifts he got from family!  He got everything from an airport playset to a shopping cart (complete with a car on the front of it--just like at the grocery store!--for a toy--or Scooter!--to ride in).  I cannot thank our family enough for all of the gifts and love they gave our little man this weekend--and his whole first year of life!  (Side note: Patrick did get ALL of his thank you cards written before he went to be Sunday--he's a little OCD about those, just like his mama)

We had a little impromptu photo shoot in my parents backyard too--and I just love how these pictures turned out!  I love the ones with his godparents (Uncle Brian and Great Aunt Kate) as well as the family ones and ones with the grandparents.  These make my heart so happy!














All in all it was a fantastic weekend--I almost feel like I need another weekend NOW...as I sit here at 6am typing this blog post...to recover from this one!  Haha!  Have a great week friends!
