This is a bit overdue, but I wanted to get everyone's pictures together before putting up this post.
We had a big party for Simon's first birthday on 8/14. We rented some space at Magnolia Park, BBQ'd some burgers and dogs and celebrated with about 40 of our friends and family.
And we celebrated all weekend...Dad, Aunt Donna, Grandma and Karyn came in on Friday and we spent the day together. Simon got some fabulous new clothes for his fall wardrobe from everyone and in the afternoon we went over to University Village to order Simon an adorable personalized chair, a gift from Aunt Donna & Uncle Paul, Aunt Ceil and Grandma. We then celebrated my birthday with a delicious dinner at Piatti. Simon was a champ, eating everything from goat cheese ravioli to a caprese salad.
Saturday was the big party day, and everyone was a huge help in making it a success. Dad and Jeff manned the grills, we had work friends, PEPS friends and the family to enjoy the day with and the weather was perfect. Simon refused to eat anything all day...until we offered him some of his cake, which he enjoyed greatly!
We spent Sunday with Mom, Jeff and Karyn, enjoying some quiet time at home. Simon played his new piano for everyone, which was a gift from Karyn and Neville. We took him out back to try out his new playset from Mom and Jeff and then had a fun dinner at Rositas.
