Liam's first birthday party!

We had Liam's party scheduled for the Saturday after his birthday, but he came down with hand foot and mouth, so we had to reschedule. We found a Friday night that worked a couple of weeks later, and all our family came over to celebrate Liam's first birthday!

You only have a first birthday once, and it was very special to celebrate our precious little man with all our families!

Mike bbqing all the food!

The cousins all had a blast playing on our new swing set, playing ball, etc.

Opening presents. As is expected he liked the wrapping paper the most ;)





SMASH CAKE!  

Except, such a fail. The icing had all hardened, so he couldn't get into the cake. 
The store had no sprinkles, so I put on fruit, but that meant that he didn't care about the cake.
It was all lopsided and looked horrendous.

But, it was a cake with a candle on it for his first birthday.

A long time ago, and yet Happy Father's day dear! You're the best dad Liam could ever have :)

Catching Up

Wow! It's been a while!  I've lots of catching up to do - mostly because I use this as our families scrapbook and I want to remember the things we've been up to.

Summer is in full swing around here. That means heading to the beach after supper, or biking on a Saturday afternoon, or vacation. Generally just enjoying the warm and sun!

The next few posts are some of the things we've been up to since we last talked :)

Watching out the window. We live on a dead end street, so there's not anything too terribly exciting to watch, but garbage day, etc. sure gets a lot of attention ;)  Here he is watching Mommy cut the grass.




We planted vegetables again this year.  The hard part, for Liam, is figuring out what he is allowed to eat and what he has to wait for.

First bike ride

I picked up a bike carrier at a garage sale a few weeks back, and Mike installed it, and now we go for bike rides everyday! Liam loves it. He sits in the front and can look all around. He talks the whole time. It's so fun!

Around town (2)

We took advantage of the beautiful weather again, and this time went to the Welland Canal, watched the boats go through the lock, went for a walk, and then out for banana splits at Avendale Dairy bar. YUM!
