We were lucky enough to have my parents and youngest sister, Sarah, drive down from Wichita to join in the festivities! They got in late Friday night after some not so fun traffic on 635 (and a late start caused by a million phone calls from me asking them to bring some thing down with them for the party).
The next morning though was warm and sunny! Yay for living in Texas! After breakfast we took a stroll down to Central Market so I could introduce my mom to the awesomeness that is bulk spices... And a million samples (seriously that place is amazing). If you live in Dallas and haven't gone to Central Market, you're missing out. Some of their stuff is a little pricey, but they have the best prices on a lot of staples.
After our trip to Central Market, we headed home so Isaac could take a nap and we could get ready for his party. We frosted cupcakes, found containers for the trail mix bar we had, and generally ran around getting things ready.
Isaac's party was a blast! Thanks to the balmy Dallas weather (it was 85!) we moved Isaac's party to a local park. It was way more fun than keeping everyone cooped up in our apartment on such a nice day. We brought our kitchen table to set stuff on and a few blankets and chairs to sit on. The kids had a blast playing on the playground (with their dads close by to watch them) and the moms had a blast talking on the blankets.
Eating his cake was probably the highlight of his day! Luckily for me, he did more than just poke at the cake (once I showed him how to tear it apart)!
|Isaac LOVED his cake!|
|"Mom, I am so happy with my life right now!"|
|So, when Isaac was born his profile looked 100% like Harold. Andy's mom got Isaac the book.|
|My parents got Isaac this lawn mower. He went around all over the park with it!|
After Isaac's party we decided it was time... he needed to get a hair cut! His hair (as adorable as it was with the curls) was out of control! So we sat him on my mom's lap and went for it.
|Isaac wanted to play with my hair while getting his cut. It kept him on my mom's lap for about 10 minutes.|
|I just love this picture of Isaac marching around!|
All in all it was a great birthday weekend! Isaac had so much fun with his toys and so many people and we just loved getting to celebrate this with him!
