On Saturday, we hosted Zeke's First Birthday Party. He invited 16 kids (ages 6 months to 15 years old) and 11 adult guests come over to help celebrate this monumental day. Even though it rained, we took advantage of our big front porch and still had plenty of space for fun.
The party was a blast for everyone! The littlest ones enjoyed crawling around on Zeke's mat and playing with toys there.
The medium ones enjoyed the tunnel and all of Zeke's wheeled toys in the house.
The big kids were great helpers and kept tabs on the younger kids while the adults got to visit. The adults enjoyed jambalaya and "adult cake" while the kids ate cupcakes and pizza.
Everyone enjoyed the piñata- well almost everyone...
Ezekiel was so happy when we brought home the Big Red Dog piñata earlier this week. He is really into dogs right now, so he loved this one! He'd gingerly touch the nose and say "dog" all week long.
When piñata time came around at the party, Zeke refused to hit it with the special stick (kids go from youngest to oldest).
When the first few kids started whacking at his prized dog with a big stick, Zeke was horrified! He cried and cried, not understanding why his favorite new dog was being attacked by his friends. Luckily, his friend Stephanie tried to distract him.
After almost 4 hours of fun, our guests had gone and Zeke was exhausted. It was a great day!
Happy 1st Birthday Party, Zeke!
