Isaiah turned 1 on Saturday and my daughter, Kate, and I went to his birthday party. Mom, Sondra, is Kate's best friend since Junior High School and I have always called her my third daughter.
Here are some of the highlights:
Opening presents - Mom is holding him while they open presents.
Help from his cousins was essential.
The theme for Isaiah's party was Curious George.
His aunt created this banana tower with a stuffed monkey perched on top.
It was cute, but the bananas started turning brown before they expected.
The cake was made by Grandma.
Dad (Dave) and Isaiah right after singing "Happy Birthday."
Bring on the cake (a combination of banana and chocolate cakes).
Mom was a little worried about the size.
Isaiah starts in, a little slow at first...
... but then he figured it out and cleaned up his plate.
Happy Birthday, Isaiah!
Here's to a great beginning!
