Julianne's second 1st birthday party

Of course one birthday party was not enough for our little angel so we had to have a shindig while we were out west. We saw so many family and friends that we had not seen in a while and we would like to thank you all again for traveling such great distances to come and celebrate with us! Shaun's parents, sister, and nephews came from Washington. Shaun's aunts and cousins came from Imperial. My college roommate and her husband came from Murrieta. Joey and his girlfriend came from San Francisco. My best good friend and her family came from Phoenix. The list goes on and on. We love you all so much and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us!
My brother and sister-in-law were nice enough to allow us to have the party at their house which made it so easy because it is a kids paradise. All of the kids had such a good time and who wouldn't with this to play on?

And this to jump in?

We had a casual lunch in the backyard, let the kids play, and caught up with family and friends:

Who needs a play set when you have papa?
Gramma time

The cake festivities did not go exactly as I had planned. Julianne was very tired and did NOT want to go into the high chair. I put her in anyway and well, there was a bit of a meltdown....

I knew she would be o.k. once she tried the cake (the girl loves cake). I was right. As soon as she tasted that cake all was right with the world again. And she DEMOLISHED it!

Look what I did!
OK, that's it. That is officially the last 1st birthday post! The party's over!
