HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE!



We ad an absolute BLAST at Kate's ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY PARTY... we went all out since this was her GOLDEN BIRTHDAY (she turned 1 on the 1st). Since her day is so close to the 4th we themed her party "the all american birthday party." Colors: red, white, blue and pink! We had a bbq -w/burgers + dogs- and made all kinds of cupcakes - which included: confetti, marble, red velvet and strawberry... yum! - we made strawberry lemondae, pasta salad and fruit dip -thanks to cami- and a to-go candy bar.



we had a BIRTHDAY GIRL CHAIR and the candy bar set up by the presents...


We had the party at Gma + Gpa Dyes house so we got to go swimming in their gorgeous pool!


Daniel was the bbq chef... thanks babe, it was delicious!




we all jumped in and swam for a bit before the food was ready...




kate was having so much fun splashing, and splashing and splashing.


After swimming a bit we went inside where Kate spotted a few of her presents... this car from gma maria and gpa curtis.


Then we put kate in her high chair for singing and cake time...


she didn't quite know what was going on and i think she got a bit scared of everyone watching her... after we sang happy birthday she dug both her hands on the sides of the cake and then started crying. Not what we planned (kara informed me that we should have practiced this with her...haha) Anyway, she wasn't too thrilled about it all over her hand and she didn't want anything to do with the cake... oh well...


then present time.... thanks to everyone that came and for all the gifts... kate is in heaven! She is loving all the toys, books, and clothes!










the cake... after a few more trys getting kate to take even a little bite... and me taking a few tastes... yum!


what a wonderful FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!

I need to clear something up before you all think I am a little nuts: When Kate wasn't real interested in her cake I looked at Brittney and said " didn't you have a practice run at home" being totally sarcastic! The party was absolutely adorable and Kate did great! Happy Birthday Kate, we love you!

Brit Kate is so cute! I thought it was funny that she cried, Aidan did the same exact thing at his first bday! I love your blog...you will have to teach me how you post your pictures side by side.
