Kerrigan is Whooo's ONE
On Saturday we celebrated Miss Kerrigan Layne's first birthday. We were all invited to share in a Pancake Party at a local restaurant that has become popular for these parties. It was a great breakfast to start off a very busy day for us. Kerrigan enjoyed playing with her gifts after Mommy opened them. She was excited about her book that made sounds. Gindy opened a princess riding toy that Mary Kate recognized and immediately wanted to scoot around on. When it came time for cake, Kerrigan ate like a little lady. She got a little messy, but not to bad. She took her time easing through the yummy icing down to the cake. Thanks for including us on your first birthday! I still can't believe you girls have already been in our lives for a year. We love you and can't wait to see what your future holds. Happy Birthday!
Following the birthday party, Max had another T-Ball game. He is finally beginning to enjoy his baseball games. Ever since we started, he has talked about how much there is to do in the game. When we questioned him he replied, "Well, in soccer you just have to kick the ball in the goal. At T-Ball we have to hit the ball and then try to run to the base. Then we have to try to catch the balls and throw them to other people. There is just a lot to do, Mommy." Jay and I found that conversation to be quite hilarious. We had never thought of it in those terms. Now though, Max has gotten the basic concept of the game and loves to play. He tells me each night that he is going to hit it over the fence for me. Sweet boy, one day you will!! He loves to play on the pitcher's mound because that is where most of the balls are hit. He fields the ball really well and then either tosses it to his first baseball or just out runs the hitter to first base. Too cute! I don't have any pictures from Saturday because I was the concession stand Mom. Ha! I can't believe we are at this point in life. Anyways, pictures to come of later games.
Following the t-ball game we loaded up to go to the 'Boro for the weekend. My sister in law's sister's wedding was Saturday night so we went for the evening. The wedding was at a beautiful historic house in a nearby city. The ceremony was set on the front lawn with the house in the background. Of course Josh and Holly were involved in all the festivities, so we picked up Jon at his house and then met Josie after work at the wedding. Holly was abousetly beautiful as the maid of honor. Her dress was a lavender color and flattered her figure very nicely. The rest of the wedding party was in dark purple. Not knowing these details, Mary Kate's dress was purple and lavender. She looked like a really small member of the bridemaids. We got there early and the kids played under the trees on the front lawn. I snapped some really cute pictures.
