Our beautiful little niece turned one last Thursday. Her birthday celebration was held last Saturday around lunchtime. We had a blast and I think Aspen did too. Check out Julia’s post and Sarah’s post for more pictures.
When we arrived, Jason, Julia and some of their friends were putting last minute touches on the food. The lunch of kabobs, pasta salad and chips and salsa was delicious. I especially enjoyed the shrimp kabobs. Here’s Grant holding up one of the kabobs he threaded.
Aspen had a beach themed party. Don’t you like the little lanterns Julia picked up at Party City? You might remember that Julia and I had gotten together for lunch and shopping last week.
Aspen had to show off her walking skills to her admiring audience.
Of course, I had to get some photos of Papa with his grandkids. Although, somehow, I didn’t get a single picture of Cameron the entire party.
After lunch, Aspen opened her presents. She didn’t seem too interested in unwrapping the presents, except for the big one. Jessica was interested in that one as well and helped out.
Then came cake. At first, Aspen didn’t seem to know what to do with the cake. Then she started picking the blueberries off the whipped cream frosting.
A little later, they cut the cake in half with a spatula and then she really went to town.
Bella seemed excited about Aspen’s cake too. I guess she knew if she stuck around, she might get a little nibble.
While Aspen ate her cake, Trevor spent some time with Nanny.
And Jessica checked out all of Aspen’s new toys.
