Jack's first birthday

We celebrated Jack's birthday today. His actual birthday is on Tuesday, but today was easier for our family to be able to get together. I have been working hard getting everything together for his party this week, while also planning and preparing for teaching preschool VBS next week (50 pre-k!). Jack had a great time. Here are some pictures of our get together.

Jack had lots of help opening gifts

Jack liked his net for catching things and Ryan thought it was good for catching Jack (thanks Katie!)

Jack and his cute new sandals and his color changer cars

Jack started out being hesitant towards the cake...

First a nibble...

Then a handful...

Aggressive smooshing...

And finally, the cake board!

Happy birthday Jack! We love you and look forward to many more years.


  1. Very fun! We are sad we had to miss it. Glad the net was a hit...I tried to pick a few things Henry liked, and that net had a long stick attached to it, so it made the cut :)

  2. Happy B-day Jack I was glad I could be there!

  3. Cute cake! I love how he demolished it. Atta boy...thats definitely how I think cake should be eaten. Happy birthday Jack!
