Owen's 1st Birthday Party

Owen and I were fighting colds, but that didn't stop us from having fun at his 1st Birthday party today!

Ben was hard at work in the kitchen (as usual) cooking up chili on the stove and burgers and dogs on the grill. Grandma Marshall made two yummy summer salads and a salsa with fresh tomatoes from her garden. Ben also baked the chocolate cupcakes, but Mommy did the frosting and decorating! :)

Everyone came over around noon and we caught up and had lunch. The weather could not have been more perfect! After lunch we all gathered around Owen's highchair to sing him "Happy Birthday".

Poor little guy wasn't a big fan of all the attention and started crying when everyone was staring at him waiting for him to smash cake in his face! Once Owen recovered from the cupcake fiasco, he smooshed it all over his face and hands.

Then it was time for presents! Kayla was a pro at present-opening since her 2nd birthday party was last weekend, so she showed Owen the ropes. He received such nice gifts from everyone!

Thank you so much everyone for making Owen's 1st Birthday such a special day!
