He had an awesome Birthday party at the house which was loads of fun. We got to see people that we hadn't seen in ages!! Papa Bear manned the BBQ, and I made cake and more cake, and more cake. I think it is very safe to say that I went way overboard with the cake. We had tons and tons of food. I am thinking way to much food. But that also stemmed from his birthday party was going to be a whole lot bigger than it actually was. Baby Bear had a lot of fun, and I think was loving being the center of attention. lol
We had a small family Birthday party for Baby Bear with my parents, and Sister's family. Baby Bear had soooo much fun playing with his cousins. He played, and played, and played!!! And this was all without any nap that day!! He didn't even have a meltdown! I know.....it was pretty amazing! I loved watching him play with his cousins. It made me a little sad knowing that he can't play with them all the time. But I am already looking forward to when we can go home for a visit again and he can hang with his cool cousins again. lol
The trip turned out to be pretty stressful as Baby Bear's teething, and clingy behavior were a challenge. Plus we didn't have a car to run into town with. Next our trip was cut short and I had to move up my flight due to Papa Bear's last minute notification from the Marine Corps that he was heading to North Carolina for a few months before I was set to return. So we had to rush home without seeing anyone else just in time for Papa to leave.
So that was our crazy birthday schedule. Here are some highlight photos I hope you enjoy
Our first ever SMASH cake. He ended up not digging into it very much. And didn't care to eat it either. lol go figure!
some of the decorations. 3 dozen balloons, and tons of signs, and streamers and little odds and ends. lol
