Julia's first birthday party of the week

Julia's birthday is this week. I can't believe that my baby is turning 6! She is having 3 parties-- the family birthday party, a small celebration on her actual birthday, and a friend party on Saturday. So we have a week of celebrating to do, last night was her family birthday party. We had a barbeque in our backyard because you can never have enough barbeques, right? "Look at all the fun stuff I got!" And this is just the beginning!

We had hot dogs and hamburgers, but we wanted something a little different too. It seems like we've had a lot of hot dogs and hamburgers lately! Here you see our yummy shrimp, and our pineapple and fajita bell pepper kabobs. I wonder why we had so many peppers left after the party was over, maybe because they are so darn spicy!

She wanted a cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. I love that she's easy to please!

"I wonder if my wish will come true..."

And most of the attendees:


Kristen and Melodie

Andrew and Charlotte. He doesn't always have that weird expression on his face, he just loves to pose for the camera (much like Ethan).

Grandma Hill

Grandma (my mom)

Thanks everyone for coming and helping us celebrate! Now I'm off to plan the next party!

I think I found you on Goodreads, and I sent an invitation to you to be friends. At least, I think it was you. Hopefully you got it!
