We went with a Lightning McQueen/Cars theme & used red, yellow & black as our colors.
This was the banner that Cam's grammy made for his Chicago Bears themed first birthday party.
I made a bunch of Tastefully Simple dips the night before & Mike's mom made a fantastically tasty & healthy bean dip. My sis brought her buffalo chicken dip which is phenomenal & we baked it in the grill vs. the oven in hopes of keeping the house as cool as possible. And since I didn't want to be stuck in the kitchen during the festivities, we picked up pulled pork, coleslaw & baked beans from a local BBQ joint.
My sis & mom!
I was very happy with how the balloon bouquets turned out!
Unfortunately my dad & brother had to work & couldn't make the party & Auntie Erika wasn't able to fly down from Chicago either.
Staying cool in the pool! The unfortunate part of having a September birthday is that it's still sweltering hot in Florida... ICK!
So lucky to have such great family & friends in our life!
Cam scored some awesome toys & clothes which is fantastic as I cleaned out his drawers & closet a few weeks ago & things were looking rather bare.
Cam's cake turned out too darn cute!
We also celebrated my sister's birthday which is today; happy birthday, Lauren, we love you!!
I had no idea that Brian was so artistic! I must say, I was very impressed with his work!
Auntie Lo Lo & Leah!
Regardless of the heat, everyone seemed to have a really great time! It was so nice to have everyone together to celebrate the birth of my baby boy!
