Last Saturday, we celebrated the trips’ first birthday.
Jack was pretty excited about the prospect of a party.
Sophie could barely contain her excitement.
Even Henry cracked a smile.
Just kidding, Henry! We know you smile all the time. Especially when Dad is around!
We had fifteen adults, four one-year-olds (okay, 75% of those were ours, but still…), one two-and-a-half-year-old, and one three-month-old in our apartment. Scratch that. In our living room/kitchen. It was packed!
Question: How many people can you fit in our baby jail?
Of course we took advantage of having so many family members in one place, and with Henry, Jack, and Sophie dressed up in their birthday best, we had to try for some family photos!
If you’re new to first birthday bashes (or if it’s been a while since you celebrated one), you may not know about the “smash cake” tradition. I’m not sure where or when it started, but the idea is that your little bumpkin gets a cake of his or her own to explore, eat, play with…SMASH!
It is probably no surprise to any of you who know us, but it is now confirmed. Henry, Jack, AND Sophie like sugar.
All in all, it was a smashing success! Pun intended.
The Choo Choo Wagon in action…watch out, world!
