I'm so happy (and surprised) that I was able to get some good pictures from the day. I figured it would be tough finding the time to snap photos while entertaining guests, refilling platters, etc-- but chasing a jungle boy around the house (with doors opening and closing all over the place) made it almost impossible.
It's actually pretty shocking that he didn't get lost at some point. I would hand him off to someone to talk to people coming and going, and it was like a game of telephone. I would look at the person who I handed him off to, then they had passed him to someone else, who had handed him to someone else. I'm surprised I didn't find him swimming in the toilet by the end of the night.
I honestly think it would be an accurate guesstimate to say I was with him less than 50% of the time. But I made sure I was by his side (or all up in his face) for the best parts...
How cool is this vintage radio flyer ride from Grammo and Grampo?
(the night before the party)
You would think they could have made a simple pirate with an earring or treasure chest or something a little more appropriate for a one year old... but no, our only option was Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom facing off on the scrub deck ;) It was the best sheet cake I've ever had, though!
This is so funny because I have almost the same exact picture at Jack's first birthday party- they were on 2 of Jack's ride on toys; now they're on 2 of Niall's b-day ride on toys.
Opening a few presents- I think Niall is saying "What the heck is going on here? Those are mine! Make some room people!"
Surprise Guest Captain Jack Sparrow arrives!
Why is everyone shouting at me?
A pretty good day, all in all
Sigh, I guess all good things come to an end :(
