Today was Isaac's big party! The weather in these parts was perfect for a picnic...at around 3. At noon, when the party was planned, it was splattering rain. So, we kept things indoors. It was a lot of fun! And I'm not really sure Isaac even knew what hit him. His favorite parts were the bananas and hearing everyone break into song.
I used these symbols to mark which sandwiches were which. Each sandwich had a toothpick with one of the three vehicles on it. Lots of people though could not decide which sandwich they wanted, so there was lots of splitting and sharing.
Sandwiches, fruits, veggies. Slightly out of focus. But you get the idea.
On Thursday, when it looked like the picnic would be off due to rain, I despaired over the idea of an indoor party and had to re-invision things a bit. I did not plan on much decorations for the picnic, but wanted something on the wall by the table if it was an indoor party. So I made this banner of my favorite Isaac photos over the past year. I love it and I think I will make one for Andrew too.
And, Mr. Sweet Step is off and walking. He has been taking steps here and there for a few weeks, getting braver and braver. But today he spent a lot of party walking around and checking things out. I love these first baby steps. Miraculous to watch.
