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.

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

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.
