Re: First Birthday Stories

We had a Nemo-themed pool party. I got this blow up pool... it was really neat. I had a deeper, smaller pool in the corner and the rest was more like a wade pool. It had a palm tree on the side that you stick the hose in to make a sprinkler and it game with blow up pool toys and such. There were two other babies at the party so we lined them all up in their high chairs to open presents and then eat cake. We had the party at a friends house so we kind of just hung out all day and let the babies play together.

Re: First Birthday Stories

Alex's first was a BASH as was Madis and so will Lilly's. We love to party on the big ones!!

Alex had 3 parties really. One at Major Magics with my dads side. He got to eat a bite of pizza for the first time and some cake. We had little matching outfits on, overalls, and I cried all day long. I was so happy yet so sad he was turning 1. His next party was at my moms with her side. It was a nice home style party with tons of food and family. the last party was with my friends (I was 16 when I had him), we went to a place called Leaps and Bounds and played in all the tubes with him. They got him a special Elmo cookie cake, Elmo was his fave, and spoiled him with gifts. On his actual birthday he also got his first haircut.

Madi's first was at a park with all the family and friends (nearly 80 people). We had a carnival theme and did carnival games, had a baloon bounce and cotton candy machine. Traditional picnic foods though. She got tons of gifts and oodly only 1 was a toy, all the rest was clothing.

Lillys 1st will also be Madi's 5th so my family can expect another bash. We are thinking of a theme already, just not sure what it will be yet.
Dawn, proud mama to Finn (11/23/10), Sully (2), Lilly J (4) Madison (8) and Alex (15). Head over heels in love with my hubby Jim
