Your First Birthday Party

October 1, 2010

On the day you were born, 
the Earth turned, the Moon pulled,
the Sun flared, and, then, with a push,
you slipped out of the dark quiet
where suddenly you could hear . . . 
. . . a circle of people singing 
with voices familiar and clear
"We are so glad you've come!"

-Debra Frasier

Dear Teo, 

For your first birthday party, we rented the swimming pool and a room at Tamarack Wellness Center.  We met in the room for snacks and presents and then headed to the pool.  Lots of friends joined us to celebrate. Auntie Sarah and Oceana helped with the setup and clean up, and Kelli G took these photos of your special day:

 Birthday boy!

 Make a wish! 

Zucchini mini cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

 Oceana helped bake the cupcakes (and eat them!).

 With papa.

 Oliver says, "Yeah!  I like parties!"
