First Birthday Party

This morning we celebrated Will’s first birthday with friends!  Grant gets the credit for the theme and I executed many of the details.  It was a fun week putting all of this together and thank you to our birthday boy for taking excellent naps this week, otherwise there would have been no cake!  Thank you as well to everyone who came to celebrate with us.  Phew, it’s been quite a year and one worth celebrating!  Happy Birthday baby boy!  We love you!


Some of Will’s favourite things – fruit, cheese, crackers and gold fishIMG_1161 IMG_1159 IMG_1158

The birthday cake!  We had little foam boat craft kits for everyone to put together and play with in the water.   We used one as a cake topper.

Drinks in Mason Jars (Thank you Pinterest for this particular idea!)

His friends even brought him gifts.  What a lucky kiddo!!


Playing with the sailboats in the lake


One family even came in a canoe from the other side of the lake.

The cardboard boat didn’t float very well (surprise, surprise!) but Will LOVED it.IMG_6986 IMG_6982

The captain.  I made the nautical flags this week too and I think we finally have something to decorate his new room with.IMG_6977 IMG_1205 IMG_1201 IMG_1194
