A Forest Pirate's Birthday

posted on: Monday, October 24, 2011

Sam just finished editing the video from Káel's 1st birthday party, yesterday! Isn't he AMAZING!?!? Thanks babe! I'm SO excited about it! It was a Forest Pirate themed day, with a treasure hunt, water fun and goodies, buried in the sand for all the kids to discover. We were overwhelmed with love as a ton of our friends came out to party with us and jump into the mood of "aaaargh" and "ahoy mate!" Our parents came out and even my Gran, all the way from Dallas. I love my family. A huge love thanks and shout to our amazing community family, thank you for making his day unforgettable!   I'll be posting some REALLY precious pics later in the week of details from the party, but in the meantime, here are some little snippets for you to enjoy!
