it's fun being one!

i can't believe how quickly time has flown...this adorable guy is already one! we hit laguna on a gorgeous day in february (when DC was digging out of snow and Atlanta was getting an inch or so) to take some beach pictures and capture what being one is all about. he could not have been more cooperative (no crying at all!) and amazed at the surf and sand. i think there was even a taste test going on...

so it's a bit self indulgent, but my birthday is coming up...and no i won't tell you what year! my mom is in town visiting, so we stopped to get some treats to celebrate. if you happen to be near porto's, try the flourless chocolate cake. it is completely, ridiculously, sinful.

you say it's your birthday (part 2)...

the party continues...the girls were treated to manicures, facials and lots of cool spa things.as the sun set, the mood around the party got spooky and the campfires and smores were in full effect!48after a good night of sleep (ha ha!) everyone recharged the following morning with breakfast and was ready for the water balloon toss.last, but of course not least was a great game of family feud!a big thanks to nathanson's who sent me to capture the wonderful moments at this amazing party!

this was the most amazing birthday party!  i tried to sneak in as a guest, but since i am slightly older than 10, i kind of didn't fit in.  i am going to have to break this post up because there were so many fun details and things to do!  so let's start with everyone's favorite...the cake.  there was a Clue mystery during the party - complete with all the characters.  the party guests followed clues throughout the house to solve the mystery.  the cake was...as you can tell...Clue cupcakes!  outside it was a pink wonderland!there were all sorts of fun drinks...including snow cones!there were games everywhere!stay tuned...there's more to come!
