Last weekend was the birthday boy's big day, and boy did he have fun. We had a camping party in our back yard and invited a bunch of our friends and family over for a cookout, cupcakes, and a campfire.
Egan was the perfect little party guy. He napped up until 15 minutes before the party which was when I brought him outside to snap a few pictures before all the guests arrived.
Here are a few (or a lot) pictures of the party scene.
The entrance to Egan's campsite.
A reminder to all the guests.
The food and drink tables.
The S'Mores cupcakes. yum.
The fire pit ready for roasting marshmallows.
The big tent and a spot to blow bubbles.
It's finally party time!
Mom and Dad with the sweet birthday boy.
It's time for cupcakes! Egan was excited and couldn't wait for dad to give it to him.
Everyone was singing Happy Birthday to Egan. He had no idea what was going on. The candle got blown out in the wind, but we decided to just leave it out. It was making me nervous anyway.
Time for cake!
wondered what the sweet, sticky stuff was (marshmallow-like topping)
and then went in for some more.
When he slowed down a bit, I added some strawberries to the mix. He couldn't have been happier.
Mia was all a bout the cupcakes as well. She was a little neater than Egan though.
Here are the three
Then, it was time to open presents! Egan still hasn't really gotten the hang of it, so Blake and I helped him so we could get it done in a reasonable amount of time. Plus, he would rather play with paper and shiny bows than actual toys. haha.
See? Shiny, gold bow = awesome.
My brother, Tyler, and Jordan. You wouldn't believe how many pictures it took to get them to look normal. Ha. Tyler's fault.
I think Egan made a new friend in Eric.
Wow, that was a lot of pictures, and I got it all done while Egan was napping, but it is about time for him to wake up, so I better get a few things done.
Thanks everyone for all the help in pulling the party together. We couldn't have done it without you! We felt so blessed to have everyone over to celebrate our little boy. Though I'm not sure he will remember this day, we will, and will tell him all about the awesome people he has in his life. We love you!
Happy Birthday, Egan!
