Today we had Mika's first birthday party!! It was lots of fun! We started it out in her splash pool where the kids all had a blast. Then inside for food and fellowship (this was more for the mommies!). I was very thankful that since Zarik unfortunately got called to work, a daddy came and manned the BBQ for us and cooked up some good hamburgers and hot dogs!! (GO RILEY!) After that we opened up Mika's present. Then onto Cake!! Or at least it was cake in Mika's case. I made "sand" and "aquarium" cups for everyone else, but Mika got to pick out her own cake from the store to dig into - although she didn't do much digging! In case you can't tell from the video, it's an "aw-oo" - Mika's word for dog. All in all we had a great time. I loved seeing all my "mommies", and Mika had fun with all her friends! But all that playing wore her out. She crashed right after the party. Just BEFORE everyone left, lol.
Fun in the pool!
