Simon’s 1st Birthday: Family Party

Simon’s cousins, and an extra auntie and uncle were in town over president’s day weekend, so we decided to have his family party then for an extra large gathering. Here is the birthday fun in pictures:

Elias helped me to decorate Simon’s birthday cupcakes before everyone came over:
