Ryan's Hole in "One" Birthday Par-tee

Saturday we celebrated Ryan's first birthday with family and friends and could not have asked for a better day! The weather was as nice as you could hope for an outside party in August, the kids all had a blast, and Ryan even took an hour long morning nap (which never happens anymore these days!) right before the party started. Everything just came together that morning.

And speaking of coming together, Matt and I were so thankful for our sweet family and friends who helped make the day so memorable. We had people helping with setup, decorations, food prep, pictures, offering toys and tables and chairs for us to borrow... I mean this party would have been half as fun if it weren't for all of the people who helped put it together!

I feel like this first birthday party was a chance for us to reflect on the year and to appreciate all of the people who have loved on us and on Ryan in the past year. Looking around our yard during those couple of hours and seeing all of the faces of close family and friends made us so thankful for their love and support, and thankful that we get to live close by to all of them!

So without further ado, here are the pictures from Ryan's first birthday party:



  1. Looks like SO much fun! I hate we missed it!! Happy birthday, big boy!
