first birthday party

last saturday we had a big family party for fritz’s first birthday. the party was yo gabba gabba themed (which i think was pretty confusing to the unindoctrinated). there were brightly colored napkins, plates, and balloons. there were delicious cupcakes with muno, foofa, brobee, toody, and plex.

there were handmade garlands and streamers, and food, of course.

and there was one precious little man in the middle of it all.

family and friends were very generous with their gift-giving, and fritz had fun “opening” packages…

"yay, alphabet train!"

and “reading” cards.

we had a special cake baked by fritz’s aunt amber for the birthday boy. it was all his to eat, smash, smear, etc. here’s a cake play-by-play for you:

after the festivities died down, we went down to the park for a little swing and slide.

as you can tell, he’s exhausted in these pictures. he refused an evening nap, but slept like a champ that night!

so i’d say all-in-all, a successful first birthday for little fritz!
