We had a great time at the park, with Jen and Kate opening their presents and me getting asphixiated from smoke inhalation at the grill. Off to the right you can see the two butterfly cakes that Lacey made.
A couple minutes later she began to pick up speed as the Minnery sweet tooth started to take hold. A few minutes later the cake was gone, and we had one happy kid.
When we got home, everyone took a much needed nap before getting on to round two of presents ... this time from the families.
There were lots of pretty clothes and fun toys. Kate really got a kick out of a baby doll she received. If only we could convince her that it's not good to chew on other children.All in all it was a great day for everyone. Jen promises me we won't have such a big to-do every year, but something tells me we're going to have to take that one year at a time.
Thanks for everyone who made the day special, whether you were at the party or just here in spirit!
