The Party's Over

I confess last week was a blur of preparations...Baby C's first birthday party yesterday, a friend's 40th birthday party, a mother daughter tea, Mini K's lacrosse game, prepping for Mini K's class Easter Baskets and final confirmations for the surprise trip to Disney.

Mr. G and I have a running joke that our family tradition for all firsts is rain and this year did not disappoint!

Wedding Day: RAIN

Mini K's Birth: RAIN (and SLEET)

Mini K's First Birthday Party: RAIN

Baby C's Birth: RAIN

Baby C's First Birthday Party: if you guessed rain, you should have guessed MONSOON!

We woke up Saturday to an alert from the city on sandbag distribution for flooding. NOT JOKING!

If you follow me on twitter you know I had planned a sock monkey themed party for our little monkey. I loved how everything turned out, but you cannot control the weather. We were so touched that our friends still braved the rain to come celebrate with Baby C. I promise to do a full post on the party but here is a little sneak peak.

I can tell you one thing, this boy LOVED his cake!
