PaRtY TiMe!!

For Peyton's first birthday we had a firetruck party! Cailyn was super excited about it because she knew what was going on! We started the day with storytime down at the library, picked up some balloons, lunch & nap time, then Dad was home and we could start the party!
Our kitchen table was decked out in firetruck things including fire chief hats for the kids. There were a ton of presents (thank you) and I even made a firetruck cake. It didn't turn out exactly how I wanted it & it was more pink then red, but you could at least tell what it was!

That afternoon we went down to the local firestation and we were able to see all of the firetrucks and go inside of them! Everytime we saw a new truck Peyton would go "ohhh!" Cailyn, of course, didn't talk to the nice fire-woman & fireman but her face the entire time was priceless. When we were done looking at all the trucks they surprised us with a ride in one of them! They let Cailyn choose and she chose the biggest one known as the ladder truck! Cailyn and I sat up front while Brady and Peyton sat in the back. Peyton the entire ride was going "ohhh" or "ahh", he was just so excited! After that fun event, we went home and opened presents and had dinner and cake. He loved the cake, but I made the mistake of keeping it in the fridge too long because it needed to set. So the cake was a little too cold for his liking, but he still ate it! From the firetruck cake, he got the cab part where the firemen sit!

All in all, it was a great first birthday for Bubby! Although, we did miss having our family here to celebrate, maybe next year! Happy Birthday Peyton Brady! We love you and look forward to many many more!
