As Boo’s 3rd Birthday quickly approaches, I know I have to post about his 1st birthday party, finally.  I don’t remember exactly how the planning went, but if it was anything like ladyBug’s party, it was crazy!  Thanks G for your wonderful photos and helping me reMember  =)

At 1 year-old, there weren’t many things Boo was into…  he had a favorite toy that spun balls around had music a several spinning things and he loved the wheels of his toy cars.  So I went with the theme of “Balls,” lots of them and colorful ones.  I went with as many ball shaped foods and activities I could think of…

My mom and SIL helped a lot with the food prep.  In addition to melon balls and various fish/meat balls on skewers, there were also two types of grapes, meatballs, green peas, rice krispy balls, and other ball-shaped yummies…

The most popular activity?  Hands-down, the trifty ball-pit!  I used a play pen that we had already and just purchased crush-proof ball pit balls.

The day was too windy, so nobody went outside to shoot hoops or toss our gigantic beach balls.  In fact I don’t think we ever opened the beach balls packaging, I wonder where they are at now…

Now let’s reMember what the birthday boy looked like at 1 year old… If you were there, reMember how he slept through the first half of his party and then after he woke up, he ate for the longest time…  =)

Don’t worry, he was crying because a bunch of people shouted “No” to touching the fire… he did not like that.  But he LOVED his cake!  =D
