day 3 of birthday with the family

We are so thankful some of our family could be here to celebrate Kaden's first year of life with us.  It took some time (which we didn't have enough of), but Kaden finally started warming up to the new faces towards the end of the visit.  Hopefully we'll get to see everyone again soon!
Farewell breakfast with Aunt Shelley and cousins, Josh & Kailee

Pool time with Momma's side of the family


 He might have been born on one day... but we celebrated the whole weekend!

June 22- Party on Rock Star!

Happy 1st Birthday Kaden!
You are so special and loved by so many!  Your Rock n' Roll themed party was great!  You and your friends played and your family spoiled you with lots of yummy love and food!  The rain held off for most of the party but ended up inside the house playing with everyone towards the end.
Here are a few details...

and some party pics...

June 21- 1 year old!

Friday morning, on Kaden's actual birthday, we greeted our birthday boy with balloons as we walked into his room and sang happy birthday.  He loves balloons, so he was excited to see the unusual surprise.  He stared up at them and watched us as we tied them onto his crib.
We celebrated all day long! 
wore a gift from one of my students this year and watched his birth video
birthday breakfast 
got to see Grandma and Grandpa (from Ohio) again
 met Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa for the first time

opened a few gifts from them

went to the beach

went to mom and dad's Kaden's favorite restaurant for dinner

(a little blurry, but too cute not to put on the blog) 
 FaceTimed with Kaden's Uncle Talan and Aunt Paula
sang to him and gave him a "practice round" at eating a cupcake
(He sure had fun... and cracked us up too!)


(again...blurry, I know... but couldn't resist putting this one on too)


After all the celebrating, he finally went to bed (over an hour after his bedtime).  He was up ready to go the next morning though.  He must have known it was his birthday party. ;)
