We were beyond thrilled to be able to celebrate our darling baby cousin’s first birthday yesterday while down in Tampa. Sweet Amelia, born at only twenty-six weeks weighing just over two pounds, is now the happiest, bounciest baby on the block.
We’ve admired cousin M’s parties from afar for ages now, and attending in person was just as fun as we’d hoped. The littles ran in the yard, bounced in the giant inflatable, swam in the ball pit, dug in the sand box and even watched a gator floating about in the lake!
The sweets table was literally covered in all sorts of “onederlandish” confections, the favorite being the ice cream cone cupcake floats.
At long last we were able to get a picture of five of the seven little cousins – Lyons, Amelia, Layla, Jay and Whit – sadly we are missing Riley and John.
Sister and I tried our best to get our littles to perch on these darling toadstools but the allure of the bounce house and ball pit was just too compelling. Are these not the bees knees?
As for the rest of the day, we tooled around at the playground and ate ourselves silly.
And the best part of all is that there are seven more days of fun in store!!
