Katie and Chloe's Party

Today we had a great time celebrating Katie and Chloe's party at Lakes Park. It was a hot day, so we were very grateful to all of our friends and family that joined us to celebrate.

We had a great time on Thursday and Friday making these signs to line the path to the party.

1st-a welcome sign

I think Katie is looking at Chloe wondering what this craziness is all about.

Chloe was the first to ride in a plane. She flew to a wedding in South Carolina in April.
Chloe enjoys brushing her teeth.

Katie went to Disney for a quick family getaway when she was 5 weeks old.
Katie likes to sit in all chairs that she can get in.
Trick question! :)
Here is Mark with his little girl. She loves to say Dad. Mom has now become MMMMM.
I talked Grandma June into coming to the party. We were so glad to have her. It was quite miserably hot for awhile, but she toughed it out. Thanks, Grandma!
Emily and Logan hanging out.
I just like this one. :)

Here are some of the kids from the party. We couldn't convince all of them to join for a picture, but at least we got most of them.
This is our trusty wagon. Emily got it as a gift for her 1st Christmas. It has been to every party since then and it is stilling working great!
Logan and Ty relaxing with a cold juice box.
G and G with their two youngest granddaughters

We had two cakes and sang Happy Birthday two times.
Our birthday girls! Katie was one on the 11th. Chloe's birthday is on the 19th.
Katie really enjoyed the cake.
She always eats with her toes like this and I was sitting watching her eat I realized I don't want to forget those little toes pushing on the high chair.
Almost least Katie is. She even has some to share. Chloe is just chilling in her chair. She did get pretty messy too.

Present time!

Thank you to everyone that was able to come help us celebrate. We enjoyed having you with us on this special day.
Our good friends Steve and Lucy helped us by cooking all the food. They have the ultimate servant's heart. They arrived at the park before we did, picked up the meat and grilled it to perfection. We so appreciate their friendship and help.

Thank you for inviting us to share in this special family time. Katie is just a doll and I still can't believe she is already a year old. Thanks again.
