Sims' First Birthday

This has been a really busy summer for us already, and it's only the end of June!  It all started with Sims' first birthday party on Memorial Day weekend.  We had a wonderful celebration at our house with family who came into town just for the occasion.  I spent an exorbitant amount of time on making things like the banners, gift favors and labels for the bubbles and silverware buckets, but it was so much fun.  We really lucked out that the weather held out for us.  No rain, and the heat wasn't so bad either.

 Jason and I had decided to give Sims a wagon for his birthday gift, which evolved into the theme of this party.

We also made the wonderful decision to not cook any of the food for the party, which definitely kept the stress level more manageable.  We served eastern-NC BBQ from Ole Time Barbeque.  It was delicious!  We ate on the leftovers for days, and we loved it!  I was sad when the hushpuppies were gone.

Sims' cousin Z came to the party, and they had a great time playing with all the toys.  They always have a ball when they are together.   
Sims' party was actually the day before his birthday.  On his actual birthday, it was just the 3 of us.  We had a great day going to the park and playing with some of his new toys.

Happy birthday, my sweet baby!  It has been a fabulous year!
