First Birthday

The day before George’s birthday, we drove to Cross City, Florida to meet my parents.  They took my three older boys for the week, and I brought my brother home to stay with me.  I decided to bring a birthday cake and celebrate.

I don’t have a cake carrier, so I made do with what I did have on hand.

Along the way, we saw some Hobbit holes for sale.

I was planning to have a parking lot party at a local fast food restaurant, but my mother, who is much smarter than I am, asked the ladies behind the counter if there were any local parks.  This was a much better idea.

After the kids played for a bit, we sang, we helped George blow out his candle, and we ate a delicious lemon cake with a raspberry filling.

My parents gave him a John Deere Duplo toy tractor.  Because every little boy needs a John Deere.

No pictures of my dad, alas.

But here’s a picture of my brother enjoying my pool.
