The day started early (or in my case normal time).

After a rest and some showers we went down to the parade. Here’s a picture of Kurt standing in a sea of bikes. The 4th in HB is like “little Holland” with all the friggin bikes.

He was
practicing some walking with Grandpa before making the trek to PCH to view the fireworks. Almost immediately after he was placed in the stroller he fell fast asleep.

Peter is 1: The Party!

Hey Blog Readers,

I am excited to show you the pictures and tell you the story of Peter’s first birthday party. Here it is:

It started with a HAT I made.

We chopped veggies, made dough, made sauce, baked cakes, made icing, cut fruit… we made many things in the kitchen…
Goggles and a lab coat were integral to the onion chopping process.

Kurt let Peter borrow his goggles.

I didn’t relish using the red food coloring but I only used a few drops for the icing. I think it looked sorta pretty when it’s swirling into the icing.

Frost the cake, but not all the way to the edges.

Sprinkle coconut, er, I mean cheese…

Place the toppings: blueberries for olives, bananas for mushrooms, squished up little pieces of squaw bread for sausage. This one is Peter’s cake!

While Mom and Dad were working in the kitchen Grandma and Grandpa got to play with Peter! What fun!

Place it in a pizza box.

him.)

He got a Panda named Parker from Sally, Uncle Blair and Aunt Christie… Can you tell he loves it? He loves Pandas and it was his first word!

Jazzed about the whole thing! He was probably thinking, “Yes, I get to tear paper, wear a cool hat, dig in to cake and everyone is watching me! This day is rad.”

Later on we played with bubbles (a first!), looked a the rabbits in the park, and made our parachute men fly! More pictures here.

Father’s Day!

AKA Kurt’s first official Father’s Day.

Here are some pictures of the two loves of my life. Their relationship has only just begun and we are looking forward to so many fun things in life.
