The First Birthday Party

The day before Dylan’s birthday we had a party to celebrate his first year.  Since it was the weekend after Cinco de Mayo, we kept the celebration going into the weekend with a Cinco de Mayo theme.

Dylan had friends of all ages come to celebrate with us.

We just celebrated this little cutie’s 1st birthday a month earlier.

After everyone ate and the kids got some good playtime in, it was time for cake!

Dylan didn’t quite know what to do with the cake, so big brother got him started by showing him how to properly eat the frosting with your fingers.

Once he got the hang of it, he decided he liked it.

Then he figured out how to pick it up, and shove it directly into his face.

Some of the kids made it in the group photo

And it wouldn’t be a kids Cinco de Mayo party without a Pinata!  Thanks to one of my girlfriends we had the ultimate giant Pinata, it was almost adult sized!

The birthday boy got the first swing

Then all the kids had a few rounds starting with the little ones

And big brother got his turn

I love the kids cheering in the background!

And you can tell this girl knows her way around a Pinata by the looks of determination on her face!

And the kid who plays T-Ball is the one who finally got the job done!

All the kids (and adults) had a great time.  We are so thankful to those who came to celebrate with us. When the party was over Dylan couldn’t go to bed without opening his presents, with lots of help from his brother of course!

I’d say it was a successful first birthday and looking forward to all the birthday parties to come!
