hey parker - it's your birthday!


today my baby boy turns one year old.  

we celebrated last saturday & it was perfect.  i had so so SO much fun planning this & putting all my ideas into action.  with lots of help from sam, our family & our friends, we totally pulled it off.  i think parker had a good time & i'm pretty sure our guests had a good time.  

here are a few details:


{cupcakes, veggie cups, drink bottles, candies.}


{parker's very own smash cake, cupcake toppers, fruit, party utensils.}


{party favor pails.}


{buntings, balloons, banners, & drinks.}


{barbeque.  mmmmm, sam's bbq.}


{friends.}


{opening presents.}


{sam & my present to parker - a bike buggy for family bike rides!  we forgot to bring this out during present time so half our guests didn't even get to see it.  but this is what we gave him.  i can't wait to try it out!}


{p-ray's pre smash-cake moment.}


{checking it out...}


{parker was not happy about getting frosting on his fingers & it was downhill from there.  so we ate his cake & it was delicious.}


{waiting for dad to clean his hands after the smash cake fail.}


{the living room.}


{friends & family.}


{our little family.}

happy birthday baby boy.  i can't believe you are one year old today... where does the time go?  i hope you look back at these pictures years from now & see how much your mom & dad love you & how much we have loved our first year with you.  you are our everything.

vote for parker's b-day?  yes please!
