Once upon a stormy birthday...

Our BABY turned one year old last week. We had a party for Gigi at Como Lake and almost everyone was able to come even with late notice. When we woke up that day it was beautiful, although the weather man warned of some rain and storms. We had a backup plan, but decided to go ahead with the party as scheduled. We had latter golf and croquet and lots of food and snacks. We all talked and had fun and then we decided it was time to move the party along as the clouds rolled in and we opened presents. Matt saw the rain hit the water on the lake and we knew we were in trouble. with in 15 seconds we were SOAKED! we all grabbed stuff, and first got the kids in cars and then went back to salvage the stuff. We thought it would sprinkle while we cleaned up, but no, it decided to hail on us instead. We didn't get too may shots while the party was on, but here they are.

We had a fish cake and cupcakes along with gold fish crackers and sweedish fish. I should have expected some rain for planning that.

Wow, Gigi is just getting prettier and prettier... watch out world! We wish so much we could have been there and can't wait to see you next month. Oh, and that cake looks AMAZING! Tana, did you design it yourself? Someday I will come live with you and follow you around trying to glean the secrets of your artistic genius. Love to you and the kids!
