This week Lincoln turned 1 and I started freaking out because summer feels almost over.
Target is easier when you can tie one kid to your back and bribe the other two with Icees.
All the kids love the Boppy
Sunflowers for Wishes is beauitful
Caroline dressed up for our wagon ride
I made the mistake of asking them to take a nice picture.
We have a LOT of clicky things from Wendy’s kids’ meals now.
This might have been the last time he napped nicely.
If you look closely you can see my baby playing with his new 7 year old BFF.
Baby’s first deli cheese
It turns out clean and shopping is pretty good exercise
OK, I’M ONE NOW, I’M GOING SWIMMING
Birthday’s are exhausting
Bumpa will read you alllllll the books
The bones of The Australia at Mystic Seaport
Using my camera to check and see if Linc is asleep yet. NOPE.
I’m proud that all my party guests noticed my sling matched the decor
He had a really good day
He has sad eyes because he tried to eat the lit candle, but eating an entire mini-cake cheered him up.
Linc’s first birthday party is over and it was SUCH a success. We were completely done and ready for our guests before they arrived (this never happens) and I got to relax and drink champagne while the kids screamed their heads off on the bounce house. My parents and E’s parents were both here which meant we had TWO grown ups per child – not to mention all the dads that Linc conned into picking him up and carrying him around. He’s really good with dads.
We’ve got some vacation coming up and I cannot waaaaaait. But first I have to get all those party photos sorted and posted, or they’ll end up in the file with the rest of this month’s fun activities and no one will ever see them. What good is a cool party theme without a blog post?!
