What a fun weekend we had, it was cousin Austin's first birthday party! Steph and Tyler did a wonderful job with all the decorations and yummy snacks. It is hard to believe our boys are growing up so fast, and that in just a few short months my little Daniel will be having his first birthday party too. Wow, I guess that means mommy has to start thinking up a theme...menu...and guest list, oh my! Such an exciting event to be able to share.
Austin was a perfect little gentleman, he and Daniel carried on a couple of conversations, including one where Austin invited Daniel to go upstairs and see his pet fish. You could tell just by watching them, that one day these to boys are going to get into lots of mischief together. :)
Austin got many cool gifts including a wagon for the Zoo and his very first car...the best one on the market in fact. It is known as the best selling car in the United States. I think you all know the one I'm talking about, because we have all been in them at one time or another. That's right it's the little red and yellow coupe and he looked like such a doll it.
After the gifts were all opened, Austin got to have his birthday cake, and my goodness what a sight it was. He touched it and played with it first, not sure what he was supposed to do with it. Then mama Stephanie went over and helped him to taste...that was how she sealed the deal for him. He had no problem digging in after that and we took plenty of pictures with his face full of HALF of that birthday cake...that's right he ate half of that cake!
We had a great time at the party, and Daniel did a great job, no fussing, or anything until we were about half way home. We can't wait to go and visit again soon, but our next jaunt is going to be to visit with Sitto and Grandpa in February. We will talk again with everyone soon and don't forget, it's Martin Luther King Day so please remember what this wonderful man did for our country.
