Airplane birthday – EJ is ONE!

So even though Ed is in crazy – get the airplane done – airplane mode, we couldn’t miss an opportunity to give EJ a little airplane themed party for his first birthday on January 1st.  (Yes, we may have watched the ball drop while feverishly hanging airplane balloons… you only live once…)

Some fun highlights included the balloon clouds and airplanes hanging in the kitchen…

This may have taken place morning of because our scale ran out of batteries… I take no responsibility for this man and his fish scale ideas.

So with all this pre-fun going on EJ, of course couldn’t nap.  You’ll see the ramifications in a moment…

But for now, just know the party started off with a super happy excited ONE year old!

And then we hit the wall.  Hard.

So the Paper Airplane contest ensued and Mr. Birthday boy napped, and woke up happy as a clam for an afternoon of family fun and first time sledding.
