***This post was delayed because we jet setted to Cheeseland the day after the party. Posts about that visit to come in the next few days.***

One year ago, I posted our birth story here. I still think back quite fondly on our home birth, and can NOT believe that a year has slipped by so quickly.

A fun time was had by all at the birthday party, except for maybe not by the Fagans who spent most of the party searching the park for Jenn's glasses (which they found at the end of the party at the rec's lost and found).

We were blessed by my dear, long time friend Emily with this great cake.

Another blessing was that Jude's grandparents and great-grandparents drove all the way up from Florida! Between my parents' 31 years of marriage, Jeff's parents' 40 years of marriage, and my grandparents' 50 years of marriage, there was over 120 collective years of marriage experience present.

Here's Jude having fun with his great grandma.

And here he is, not really getting that we wanted him to do something with this cake, despite all of Aunt Vickie's best coaching!

O.k. Maybe he is getting it now?

And here's Jude's favorite part. Playing with the gift bags, that is!
