The party

We were blessed with beautiful weather and beautiful friends to celebrate Dominik's birthday party.  Tom and Lukas and Konrad did a great job decorating the backyard, and it was so fun to see Dominik's guests enjoying themselves.

Konrad is sneaking some nosh before the guests arrive.

That's the birthday boy and me!

Some of Dominik's friends enjoying his toys.

And then it was time to eat!

The conversation is too great to go get food!

Dominik enjoyed his sandwich and now he's eating bananas...he has no idea what's coming next!

Wow!  This frosting is even better than banana!

Natalie is done with her cupcake and wonders why Dominik's cake is bigger than hers was.

Some of the dads are egging him on...he is definitely playing for the crowd!  But he also REALLY ate a lot of cake!

Natalie and Sarah are having a fun conversation while Lukas plays with Samantha.  Sarah used to watch our kids before Samantha was born.

Dominik didn't realize the party came with cake AND presents!

More of Dominik's friends...

...and all the boys are very interested in a certain big truck!

Doesn't she have the cutest wrinkle in her nose?

We're so glad everyone had a fun time at the party...and most of all that Dominik enjoyed it (it's not always a given that a 1-year old will enjoy his party, in case you were wondering!)

Oh my Cindy I really enjoyed reading this blog entry. I think my favorite pictures are the ones where Natalie is eyeing up Dominik's cup cake with the look on her face and I also love the one where Dominik didn't realize presents came along with the party. Your commentary was perfect for both pictures. It was so good to see all of you. I miss you guys so much. I felt bad I had to leave so early, I would have stayed longer if it wasn't for the other party. You are such a great mom. Your kids are so blessed to have you and Tom as parents.



(Thanks for the blog shout out hehe)
