Liam's First Birthday Weekend

Since we were in St. Louis last weekend, we waited to celebrate's Liam's first birthday this weekend. We have had 80 degree weather all week but this weekend brought windy, cold weather. We will always remember 50 degree weather in the middle of May this year. We brought back out our long sleeves and pants and made it an adventure. We decided to have it at a local park and have a BBQ. We invited our friends and my parents were able to be here as well. Nate thought it would be fun to bring out the MCU. The MCU is our student mobile church unit. This is used at a lot of student serving activities. You will mainly see this at all the high school football games with the grill out of it and serving free hamburgers and hot dogs. It has a flat screen TV with a Wii hooked up to it and is fully loaded with tables, chairs, a grill, etc. We thought it would be fun for the kids to be able to take a break from playing and watch a little Toy Story 3 on the big screen.

When it was time to sing Happy Birthday and dive into the smash cake, Liam really wasn't interested. Ha! I tried to get some icing in his mouth but he just wasn't liking it. Then, my Mom gave him some of the cake and he LOVED that. So, he must just be a cake with no icing kind of guy. He wasn't too happy when we took it away from him, but I didn't want him to have a stomach ache. Thank you to all who made this such a special time for Liam. He is such a wonderful baby!

p.s. I don't know why my pictures are blurry on this post. Also, I didn't get pictures of all the families that were there. Grrr!!!!

Can I have more cake? Please?

Sweet boy

It just tastes okay.....
