A Big Weekend

This weekend was packed for us. A visit from gramma, grandpa Joe & cousin Isobel. Jimmy's 1st birthday party & Valentine's Day. A ton of photos have been taken but this post is all about Jimmy's birthday party. We decided to have his party 10 days before his birthday so Rick's family could be included. It was a beautiful day. Sunny & 78 degrees. Lots of friends, family a jumper with a slide, a catered taco stand & of course a cake. It was such a nice day watching Jimmy walk around the yard smiling & laughing being passed around from friend to friend. After some time went by it was time to sing to the birthday boy. He had never had sweets up to this point so we were excited to see his reaction. Up in the high chair he went to have everyone sing to him. He seemed to enjoy the song & his two brothers were right there to sing to him. But then after Johnnie blew his little brother's candle out everything changed. Jimmy seemed disgusted when he touched the cake. I still held out hope that he might enjoy the taste of the cake but that idea was soon shattered when after the first bite he made yuck face & proceeded to spit it out. And then everthing went downhill from there. Jimmy started crying & rubbing cake all over his face. He was signing "All Done" & just wanted to get away from the cake. It was so sad but of course we had to make sure to get a picture of his messy face. Too bad it all ended up all over his face & not in his mouth. Maybe he'll eat some on his actual big day. And then after cleaning him up & changing his clothes Jimmy was back to his happy self. We really wanted a family photo but we couldn't get Johnnie or Joey out of the jumper so we made sure to get a pic with our birthday boy! Thanks to everyone who helped to make this day so special.

That looks like a fun day. Except for the cake part. That's funny he wanted nothing to do with it. I can't believe he's turning 1 already.

Thanks for having us! Kelsea is determined to have that jumper at her next party. I guess we will have to have the party at your house. haha!

Happy Birthday, Jimmy! I can't believe you're one! Hopefully you learn to like cake. :-)
