IMG_0249 (1)IMG_0274 You had an amazing 1st year baby girl, and we celebrated it in a big way!  Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Great Aunt and Uncle, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends… we all came together to celebrate you my love.  It was a warm night in the back yard.  The children swam, the adults took turns holding you and loving on you.  We dinned on your daddy’s amazing tri-tip sandwiches, but you were mostly interested in the watermelon.  We piled the presents in front of you, as all the big kids pressed in to watch you open your gifts.  You got your own little cake and you beamed as we sang to you.  When the singing was over you put on a good show!  Cake and frosting everywhere! You grinned and hollered and waved you messy hands around in the air.  The more we all laughed the more you whooped and hollered!  The sun went down and you watched from the porch while the big kids ran through the grass with sparklers. You stayed up WAY past your bedtime :)

Happiest of Birthdays my love!  You are a bright, happy spot in our lives… our precious pearl.
