So we had this picturesque first birthday in the park planned. We were all ready to grill out and take cute pictures and have the kids run around and play. Mother nature didn't quite agree with me. That day the high was 107, so we had to regroup. I called around and finally found a pizza place with a party room we could use. I was upset at first, I wanted there first birthday to be special and the way I had planned it. It turned out good though, and atleast it wasn't 107 degree inside there!

We had two cupcakes. We had Black Forest Cupcakes. They were delicious. We also had confetti cupcakes for all the kids.

|Penny was very dainty!|

|She decided she loved it too!|
We got so many presents! The twins have been having so much fun playing with all of them!

So although the party wasn't quite what I planned, it turned out great! We had a good time and made some good memories. I felt like more of a milestone for Will and I than for the babies. We did it! We made it through our first year with twins! There were some rough spots, some sleepless spots, some crabby spots, but there were also moments of sheer joy and happiness and moments of learning and growing. The babies have grown and learned so much and really so have Will and I.
I love you Ben and Penny! You make the world a better place!
