My niece turned 1 year old this May, and to celebrate we had not one, but two parties the same day! My brain was never the same again.
We started in the late morning with the kids' party. Basically there were ten or so 6-month to 3-year-olds crawling, running, screaming and snotting throughout the house. My sister's amazing photographer friend Justine of Russo Photography showed up early to take some pictures. Here are a few of the good ones, (and one with Auntie D too):
We did all the typical birthday stuff: had some cupcakes and opened some presents, then it was naptime so every one left. Short and sweet.
Later on in the day we had the family party. Leah is the first child in the family in about 15 years, so having a baby around is kind of a big deal. Everyone showed up. We had some dinner and drinks and then it was time to open presents again. Somebody got spoiled!
A few hours into the family party I had to leave, because I had another destination... Mexico!
