It’s officially my birthday week here at Living Locurto!
I didn’t realize until today, that I’ve been blogging a whole year. Wow! I’ve had an amazing journey and can’t imagine not having so many of you great blog and Twitter friends in my world. Remember this 80’s hair contest? Ha! (If any of you know Angie from I Heart Faces… you have to click on that link to see her hair!!)
It was also a year ago that my son started riding a bike and gave me content for my first blog post. That’s what I love about blogging… I would have never remembered that moment if it wasn’t on my web site!
Since I love a good party, I thought it was fitting to show photos of my son’s 1st birthday party today. The theme was “On the Farm”… it’s the one that started my love of throwing awesome birthday parties for my kids!
I didn’t make this cake, but it inspired me to start making my own. How cute was this?? You can see the invitation I designed on the left side of the photo. It was a barn and the doors opened up to see the party details.
I built this barn out of a big cardboard box! It was so much fun to make and paint.
He was already running by the time he turned one, so this was REALLY fun for him!
I hot glued silk sun flowers all over the barn. They actually lasted for a while before he pulled them all off.
He really enjoyed the pictures on the inside of the barn door too. I think those lasted about a day before he ripped them off!
For more fun, He and his friend went for a hayride around the house in his new wagon. You can tell this was after cake because he’s shirtless:-)
Find printables for your On the Farm Party in my shop!
Hope you had fun at the first birthday party! Can’t believe it’s been a year!! How long have you been blogging??
