Harrison’s first birthday party was a success! I was pretty nervous about the whole thing. There is a lot of pressure for a perfect 1st birthday party.

We decided on a pirate’s treasure theme to incorporate his golden birthday in there. I googled and researched and practiced and made a really awesome treasure chest birthday cake. Brice’s dad, Bill, made an amazing nearly life-sized ship. Both of Brice’s parents helped us prepare a ton of food. It was so fun to celebrate with lots of our friends and family.

It’s not very often that Brice and I get to go out with other adults without the baby, so we really savored our night out! (and then we rushed home right after the game…)
