Birthday Cake at Grandview

We had planned to have a birthday bash for Lukey on the 28th of March, but everyone in my family was sick. I was pretty disappointed, although admittedly Luke didn't seem to mind. We had a good time on his actual birthday, though so that was fun. Then, we were able to throw together a last minute party for this past weekend so we ran with that. (Sorry Gina that your flooring didn't come in!) We planned it for Grandview park so that it was closer for most people than driving all the way to F-town to our house. Plus, it had lots of space for the older kids to play. The only problem is that it was freezing! Oh my goodness. It was so cold. Luke's nose was red for the rest of the day. But overall I'd say it was a definite success and I'm happy that we were able to do it. Here are a few shots of the day. Josiah took better pictures, but I haven't figured out how to download them properly yet.


The train cake, which I was pretty happy with. Although it nearly caused tears when we had to cancel. Fortunately, it froze pretty well and was a hit, especially with the kids.


He saw the cake and immediately started signing "more." Too cute.


He received his very own "Luke is 1!" train car. I don't think he was impressed.

Here's Daddy, trying to encourage him to have a taste, or at least get a little messy!



Finally delving in.

I don't think he was too impressed either way. He could take it or leave it.


Cutting the cake for everyon else.

"All done!"

We had a good day, despite the cold and wind. I was worried for a while cause it ended up taking four guys to get the fire started for hot dogs. Apparently Josiah is a genius in that department to, cause it finally worked when he showed up! We enjoyed celebrating our little boy... and are glad it's over! I confess that I just now finished unpacking all the stuff from the party. Oops. But, now it's on to life with a one-year-old! Here we come!

That was a great cake. And great fun. A great boy. Great parents. Great.

It was a great cake and a great party. However, I must make a correction. According to my son, that wasn't a train car; it was a COACH car. Had to set the facts straight.

Well, we know that E. is definitely the expert on trains, so...
Thanks for the great party, although I think it has already been mentioned that it was great.

Rebecca, that cake is brilliant! Is that popcorn for the steam/smoke? How did you get it to stay together like that?
So glad you could finally have the party, cold and all.

Your computer (or perhaps it's your camera)is apparently broken. Would you like for me to have it mended?

They're both working perfectly well. I haven't got them turned on at the moment. (The camera works, you don't.)

Love you dad.
