Zander's Birthday Party!

All aboard the fun train. I had a hard time deciding on what kind of cake to make for Zander (oh wait, what kind of cake to have my mom make). We decided on a train cake. When Zander saw his cake he smiled and pointed and said, "dat!" (that), he wanted it right away. We had a BBQ and the rain finally stopped so we were able to enjoy the sun for an afternoon. Zander loved the balloons my mom gave him, the number 1 balloon is taller than he is, he will have it for months.
When it was time to sing happy birthday all the kids did a great job to sing softly so it didn't freak him out. He was excited to get ahold of his cake, he promptly took the plate and tossed it aside and then he dug in....but never put the cake in his mouth. I put a couple pieces in there but it wasn't his favorite. He would squish the cake between his fingers and rub it on his belly or throw it. It was so fun to spend time with everyone!!

That is so cute he'd rub it on his belly and throw it. There's nothing quite like a first birthday party! Happy birthday Zander!

Love it! He is so ADORABLE Nika! That cake is pretty amazing (props to your mom for making it); I especially love that the train conductor is a little cutout figure of Zander.

That cake is adorable. Good job Grandma! That is so funny that he didn't really care to eat the cake though. :)
