On Sunday the 18th we threw his birthday party with a Very Hungry Caterpillar theme. The invitations were adorable, if I do say so myself:
I had a lot of fun decorating; so much so that I put out very little food. It's okay though. With a party time of 3:00 PM, I was hoping people didn't come too hungry.
|Food tents at the food. We kinda-sorta ate our way through the story with a few exceptions and modifications.|
One of the main centerpieces of any great birthday party is the cake...or cakes in this case. I made chocolate and white cupcakes, and Will had his very own smash cake:
...but I didn't get a good picture of mine. Shame. Here they are on display in the bottom left hand corner of the picture below:
I have to be honest, Will didn't truly love his cake the way I thought he would. I wonder if it was all the attention of being watched. He did like it, but he didn't make the huge, face-planting mess that some 1-year-olds do.

|The sweetest big brother who ever lived!|
|The Mitchell-Nolan crew were in attendance! Hooter-Hoot!|
|The birthday-boy and his mama...me!|
|I just love this picture of Caroline and her Uncle Jason!|
