Party time

Digging into his presents.
Hunter was quite the party-er!

Some of our decor. My favorite part of the decorations was the balloons Cory hung from the ceiling fan, and then turned it on low so they floated around.

Trying out the new trike (in his new crocs). Gabe's legs are still a little short (a problem I've always dealt with....) but he'll have fun soon racing around outside on his bike.

The birthday boy!

Here are some photos from our little party last night. When Gabe woke up from his nap Cory put on the Cars soundtrack (loudly) and we danced around the house looking at the decorations (crepe paper and balloons everywhere!). Then we settled down to open presents. Gabe wasn't content with just taking the wrapping paper off the presents - he wanted to open all of the boxes and start playing. He loved the gifts he got and had fun playing with all of them! Thanks to everyone for being so generous.

Then we had a birthday dinner of pancakes (one of Gabe's favorite foods) with strawberries and whip cream. He still wanted CAKE for dinner - so we thought that pan-CAKES would work so we didn't feel too guilty for a sugary dinner :).

After dinner we got out the cake - a CARS cake. (Everything was CARS themed). Gabe was super excited about it and loved blowing out the candles. However, the minute we put the piece of cake in front of him I think he ate all of 2 bites, and played with the frosting some. But after all the fuss he'd been making for the last weeks and particularly all day of his birthday - he didn't dig into the cake like we thought he would. It was pretty funny.

Thanks to everyone for their birthday wishes and the gifts - you were all so sweet!

Happy Birthday bud! It has been so fun to watch you grow from a baby to a little boy this year (thanks for all of the pics and updates Joanna!). We can't wait to see all of the new things you will learn this year. We love you and it looks like you had an awesome party! Can't wait to see all of you.
