Yesterday we celebrated our little baby boy turning the big ONE! Both of my girls are born in the winter months and because baby brother is a Summer baby we took advantage of the great outdoors and the nice weather to have a BBQ party at a country park.
We had a good time with old and new friends, enjoying some Romanian BBQ.
On Friday it rained ALL DAY! we were really thinking about other options. .a thing you should do no matter the weather or season in this country really. There is a saying ( from the wise pig in boots, Papa Pig) : if you want to rain in England just start up a BBQ.
But thankfully God blessed us with a lovely weather. The girls were praying for no rain on the day and they were so excited to see God answering their prayers!
The theme of the party was Animals on Parade as Alex is just starting to discover them. Here are some of the details:
All the animals got dressed up thanks to some coloured card,cupcakes liners
and my trusty hot glue gun!
For the berry cups I used paper flower pots. I found them on sale and I thought they worked perfect for an outdoor party.
The biscuits and cake were made by a very talented friend from our church.
For the last few years she has made all our birthday cakes.
The party bags.I used brown paper bags and made them into a cone and filled them up with jelly beans, some Kinder chocolate, an Animal chocolate bar & a small plastic toy animal and attached a thank you note card.
When we all started singing Happy Birthday he started crying. He settled quickly and after 10 min he was ready for his nap. He had a full day! Being One and cute is so exhausting you guys. 🙂
Happy birthday little one!
by the end of the day he was out! 🙂
I say this often…but time..sure goes fast.
