R & B turned one last month… I’m still shocked that I’m mom to TWO TODDLERS now! Where did the last year go?!?! For various reasons, a big family birthday party just wasn’t going to work out this year, so we had a low-key birthday weekend. It was perfect. My (very pregnant) sister flew in from LA to visit. We went to a local apple orchard for one year pictures, and had a small family dinner, complete with smash cakes, to celebrate.
My mom and sister were such a huge help at the orchard. Imagine two squirming one-year-olds and three adults trying keep their clothes clean and get them to look at and smile for the camera. I felt like we were herding cats!
Byerlys does a first birthday special – a free smash cake with the purchase of any regular cake. So guess where we went to get our cakes? This was so much fun. I got B’s headband and necklace and R’s tie at Crazy 8. I’ll probably try to re-use them for Christmas outfits. This batch of pictures turned out a bit darker than I would like. I suppose I’ll have to beef up my photo editing skills!
