The Birthday Cake

Although the cake festivities started out a little slow, all was quite successful in the end.

Birthday Lunch

We continued the birthday celebration yesterday by visiting a great little pizzeria for lunch.

Although all the babies were asleep at the start of the meal, seen here from outside the restaurant, everyone woke up in time to enjoy the tasty pies.

You might call pizza on your first birthday a family tradition for us. There's a story that says Carmen was fed pepperoni pizza on her first birthday by her dad which caused her mom to panic. Pizza evidently wasn't something you fed babies in the 1970's. :)

Happy Birthday, Babies!

We were so excited to be able to spend Hanin and Hudson's first birthday with their cousins Henry and Hadley, and with Aunt Kirsten, Uncle Jaron, KK and Grandpa in Moorhead, MN.

It was a fantastic day, filled with lots of fun for everyone!

The day started with a small gathering for breakfast, then we all enjoyed a bit of fresh air at Kirsten's school.


Olympic Question

So, Haden wants to know who would win a race between Flash, the Road Runner, and Usain Bolt. I love 4 year olds!
