The Biggest And Best Birthday Party

Having a summer baby has a lot of benefits (biggest being it is nowhere near Christmas or anyone else’s birthday). One of them is we don’t have to be at home. We already knew we wanted a beach trip this summer and decided to coordinate it with Kaitlyn’s birthday. If we had her party in Kentucky then all of her grandparents (and aunts) could attend. Having a first birthday party with all the family in attendance is a first for us and it made for an awesome party! We started the day with donuts from Red’s, last minute decorating, and then setting up for all the photos we planned to take later in the day.

Kaitlyn slept through our big lunch and then we got to the important part of the day – the cake!

The big kids had waited so patiently all day for the presents. It was all Alex could do to let Kaitlyn slowly pull some paper from a bag. Kaitlyn got a baby doll, tea set, books, and a handmade dress from Granny!

The dress from Granny was too sweet not to try on immediately.

Last, but not least – Happy Fourth of July!!
