We invited family and friends, served up pizza and cake; and brought some fun stuff for the little ones - Raffa's blue car, his tricycle, and of course, there was the playground equipment.
Raffa skipped his morning nap, much to my chagrin. But he had a blast at his party ... he spent a considerable amount of time in his blue car. He crawled around in the grass and the wood chips for a bit. He also did some swinging on the baby swings.
We sang "Happy Birthday" to him and when it came time to dig in to the little cake my mom made especially for him, he was quite gentle with the actual cake, but otherwise certainly hammed it up and put on a show.
We all had so much fun and the day was perfectly fitting of the sweet boy we all love so much.
