Happy Birthday Sophie!

June 9, 2009

On March 8th our sweet little peanut turned one year old.  It’s hard to believe how fast the time has gone by and what an amazing experience it has been.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we threw a little party at the park down the street from our house. (Somehow our invitation list grew almost to the size of our wedding – and it didn’t even include people from out of town!) Going to the park gave us plenty of room to spread out, and the kids could run around and play on the swings and play structures. Thankfully, the weather co-operated and we had a beautiful sunny day.

Debbie decided to make Sophie’s cake herself, so she baked and decorated a giant cupcake as well as a bunch of little ones.

We also got Sophie a ladybug cupcake-cake. (have you figured out what the theme is yet?)

Here’s the birthday girl herself in her ladybug dress.

There was plenty of food and drink for those not busy climbing on the playground equipment.

I wish I could say I arranged for these people to come by with their birds to entertain our guests, but apparently they were just taking them for a walk in the park.

Finally it was time for birthday cake!

Sophie did manage to make good dent in her cake (mostly frosting I think) and went into a bit of a sugar daze for a little while.

After a quick costume change, Sophie was ready to mingle with her guests again.

Here are a few other shots from the party.

Finally we headed back home. Our friends Shay and Eric had come down from Simi Valley for the party, and they stopped by the house for a little while to hang out and watch Sophie open some of her presents.

Finally, after such a busy day, it was time for a bath and then off to bed. (and of course you have to brush your teeth after all that cake!)

Thanks to everyone who came to the party or sent cards/presents, and special thanks to everyone who helped us set up for the party.

There are many more pictures in the album, so be sure to check them out.
