Amaya's Birthday Celebration

Here are some pictures from Amaya's birthday celebration last Sunday. It was a beautiful day, which was nice since we had her party outside at Oregano's. We were their 1st "group event" in their new outdoor party area. So that was neat. As always, the staff at Oregano's was wonderful. They are known for their service as much as they are known for their yummy food. So, anyway, it was a fabulous afternoon, but was also a whirl wind with toddlers running about. They definitely keep you on your toes.

Gift opening begins. Will, always the gentleman, assisted Amaya with opening her presents.

Ellie helped, too.

Amaya pausing to take it all in for a moment. I am sure she is thinking, "wow, birthdays rock!"

Will helping Amaya with a big one. Amaya says, "Whatever could it be, Will?"

Will answers, "Wow, it's a trike. Look at those awesome wheels, Amaya."

With all these gifts around, what are Will and Amaya looking at the ground for? It looks like they are checking out Amaya's shoes. Maybe there was a creepy crawly. Glad I didn't know.

Amaya: "Look, Will, it's a shake 'n' go car."
Will: "Super fun. Let's take it for a spin."

Clearly already a girlie-girl, Ellie admires Amaya's new hair ties. And Will, he's anxious to move on with gift opening. He's all practiced up and ready for his big day coming up in a few days.

Mommy says, "Look at your new Elmo swimming suit, Amaya."

Will says, "Oh yes. That's one fine looking swimming suit. You'll look great in that Amaya. But... can we open this big one?"

Amaya and Will tear into the big blue package.

Will and Amaya in unison, "It's a basketball hoop!"

Kate says, "Mommy, when is my birthday? This looks so fun!"

Amaya and Will patiently waiting for me to get the shake 'n' go car out of it's packaging.

"Who wants to have a tea party with me?"

Cake Time

Amaya blew out her candles all by herself. We practiced a few times in the morning, so she had it down.

Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us!
