It is my baby's 1 year birthday!! Where did the time go? We have been so busy during this last year that it has literally blown right past! I remember all to clearly the events of her birth...it couldn't have been a YEAR ago, could it?!? LOL
For her birthday, we invited our neighbors over for dinner, cake, and presents! She had a good time, I think! We got her a "Little People" themed cake and she had her own "smash cake" too! We centered the majority of her gifts around the "Little People" theme...even the neighbors brought over a HUGE set of them for her!! (We now have more of these little figures than Toys R Us, I think!! LOL)
Anyhow, the party was a success and Baby Blue danced and played in her party dress! Today, she decided that since she is now a "big girl" that there will be no more crawling! Nope, she walking everywhere she goes now! Nooooo.......my baby is getting big too fast!!
Here are some highlights from the day...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABY BLUE!

This was Cricket's pony when she was Baby Blue's age. Now, she is passing it down to her little sister! It is the sweetest thing to see Cricket teaching Baby Blue how to press the ear buttons so the pony will sing! Cricket was very sweet about passing down her toy!

The kids were DYING to go to a Pumpkin Patch this fall. They didn't want to get pumpkins from the local grocery store or Walmart. Well, being that we are in Florida, we weren't sure where the closest Pumpkin Patch might be or how decent it would be. So, I did some quick research on the internet (What DID we do before the internet?) and found that there are several within a 2 or 3 hour drive from our house. Some were simple, pick your own pumpkin places, and some were all out Fall FUN - corn mazes, pumpkins, apple cider...you name it! We chose Seward Farms (www.sewardfarms.com), which was just under 2 hours from our house. We thought that it might be nice to make a day trip out of it! The kids had so much fun! Here are a few of the things we did: Slid down PVC Slides, Rode Cow Trains, Cheered at the Pig Races, Solved the Corn Maze, Played in the grass, Picked Wildflowers, Rode on the Hayride...
And some of us even found long lost relatives!
(HA!) We ended up spending a number of hours at the Pumpkin Patch and really enjoyed the weather that we had for the day! It was so much fun!
