Clowning Around At Tyler's 1st Birthday


On Saturday Kate had her first clown experience at Tyler's first birthday. She was actually quite fascinated by the clown...and his shoes. These are a few picture of Kate waiting her turn to get a balloon animal. Hers was a cute little white mouse.

Kate made up her own little party game: Bobbing for Fruit Drinks. She loved sticking her hand in the cold water and pulling out whatever she could find -- drinks, ice cubes, a stray spoon and a broken nacho chip that fell off the table. If it's in there Kate will find it. And once she finds it it usually ends up in her mouth. This is one of the reasons we still use a pacifier beyond bedtimes. Generally if there's a pacifier in her mouth, Kate will not put other items in there. But once the pacifier leaves, anything is fair game.

We didn't get to sneak in a pic with the birthday boy this time, but here he is blowing out his candle with mom and dad.
