Max's Birthday Party at MyGym

Max had such a great time at his birthday party. It was hard to pick just a few of the 300+ photos of the various activities. He was working off a 30 minute nap, but that didn't slow him down at all. He really had a blast! And although I got teary-eyed I didn't cry! And I didn't have any nap at all! :)

Max (in his My First Birthday shirt) laughing with Mira.

His birthday cake cupcake. I think Glen called it a decoy cake. We had cupcakes for all the kids, since those were easier for us to serve to them and for them to eat. We waited until we got home to slice up the big cake. The top part is funfetti cake and the bottom is chocolate. Julian picked out the candle.

Max on his "rocket ride" in the kiddie seat. He got to go first since it was his birthday. Miss Carmen is the owner of MyGym and teaches Max's class. The girl in the purple shirt was there to make sure Max had a great time and felt totally special.

Max is in the car for his special birthday parade. Nik is pushing him and Julian is right behind. The kids all sang Happy Birthday to Max and Max rode in the car and clapped. He also beeped the horn.

Duncan enjoyed the bubbles. Sadly it was impossible to photo document him trying to eat them off the floor, but it was totally adorable!

Thanks to Krista for demonstrating that I was at the party! Max is catching the bubbles. It took him a while to warm up to the idea, but the other kids were loving it and he decided to join in.

Max in the seesaw. He loves to rock in it, even if he doesn't have a seesaw partner. He can do his version of baby dancing and bounce up and down.

I hadn't seen Max on this before, but he was very excited about climbing up.

Max had cake for the first time. He and I split a funfetti cupcake with white frosting. He was more interested in the cake wrapper at first but after I broke off a few bites of cake for him he was totally willing to try to take a bite!

Max in the birthday swing. This was probably his favorite part!
