Instead of doing the party at our house, I decided to do it in a more rustic, "Hundred Acre Wood" type setting at a wooded picnic area on base. The weather was gorgeous.
Yes, the bunting does actually say "Caleb", it was just a little breezy.. =)
This is the same cake I made for Keenan's first birthday so it was fun to make it again five years later.
Newborn and (almost) one year pictures of Caleb
Bit O Honey. If you haven't had these, you're missing out
Some fun pictures I took last week
Love these lanterns!
I saw this streamer party tent idea on pinterest and knew it would be perfect for this party!
I made place mats for each kid from brown paper bags
Stitched the first letter of each name, "tasseled" the edges and voila! A personalized place mat ready to draw on
We had a few outdoor games for the kids to play, although they preferred the nature walk Philip took them on, or just running around...

Thank you, Philip, for all your help setting up and taking down, thank you to our wonderful friends for coming to celebrate with us and for your sweet gifts! What a fun day! Five more days until this boy is ONE!
