Oh, what a day it was! We had donuts and presents for breakfast, a party at lunch, and pizza and movie for dinner. There were a few meltdowns, as expected, but I think he couldn't have asked for anything more. Well, more presents. He can't get enough. But besides that.
Tons of photos on my flickr page, but here are some favorites.
Presents in pajamas. That's Ben's old wagon that his folks restored for Jack. I had one just like it!
At the party, Pin the Spider on the Web
Oh no! There's a robber!
Got him with our spiderwebs!
Got him good.
Every last drop of silly string was used.
Thanks to Amanda for these great shots.
Sam was thoroughly confused when he woke from his nap. Poor guy kind of got the short shrift during the party. Luckily I had lots of helpers to hold him. Ben protecting his lawn.
Sam and Henry playing "together" as 8 months olds do.
As requested, a chocolate cake with cherry ice cream inside.
Patience was running low by 1 1/2 hours, but they stuck it out through the present opening.
It was a really fun party. I enjoyed having so many of MY friends there too. Almost none of the moms or dads knew each other. For the record, Jack's friends at the party were Nora, Parker, Ellis, Adam, Ella, Hazel, and Olin.
After a short quiet time, we relaxed in the cool and empty backyard.
Pizza, more cake, and "Everything is awesooooome!"
Happy (early) Birthday, Jack!
