Yes, this happy little man has officially turned one year old! I know, I know... some of you are wondering why in the world I'm just getting around to this now considering his birthday was almost 3 weeks ago. Well, I'll tell you why. We were coming to SC to see family a week after his birthday, and since the 1st birthday is really for the family anyway instead of the kid, Ben and I decided to have his birthday party while we were here in South Carolina.
This lady here (Trish, aka Anita's Scrabble buddy) and her family came with a gift for Connor to open, even though it was not required for admission to the festivities.
I decided to buy Connor's cake rather than make it, and fortunately Wally World had a great Curious George cake perfect for the occasion!
Then of course we had to do the traditional "baby's first cake" thing. I learned long ago at Olivia's first birthday that the more colorful the icing on the cake is, the more fun baby has. (And the spectators, of course!)
