Since Doodle Bug has a milk allergy, I decided I would make his birthday cake. As the "yes" RSVP's kept rolling in, I realized quickly that I'd be making 2 cakes for the 65 people that were attending! I was a bit nervous that the cakes wouldn't turn out, but everyone said they were great! (hopefully they weren't telling a white lie so as to not hurt my feelings ;o) Here are his cakes.
The theme to Doodles first birthday bash was from the Disney movie, Cars. We had a bounce house in the backyard for the "bigger" kids. However, I did see some adults in there towards the end of the party. Hubby even took Doodle Bug inside to jump around. He squealed with excitement the entire time!
Doodle Bug was spoiled with tons of great gifts! He opened a few, then grew tired and moved on to the next room to find some more excitement! While the gifts were being opened, the adults played "Blogger Trivia". I asked questions that pertained to this blog. My friend, T, won the trivia game. After all of the gifts were opened, it was time for cake. Hubby and I helped him blow out his candle and cut his first piece of birthday cake. Of course, we got the classic "cake all over the place" picture. He ate only a few bites of birthday cake, but enjoyed smashing it in his fingers much better than eating it.
Thank you to all of our friends and family for helping us celebrate Doodle Bug's first birthday. He had a lot of fun and is still recovering from all the excitement, sugar, and lack of naps :o) Thank you to all the friends and family members who helped decorate, set up, and clean. And a BIG thank you to my hubby, for all of your help and support. We love you all!!
