Friday night, after work, Kevin and I loaded up the baby and headed toward Pennsylvania to celebrate my cousin's baby's first birthday and for our family reunion. Saturday was the birthday party and it was blazing hot outside so what is one to do on a scorching summer day? Lounge in the pool of course!
My sister and her gorgeous daugher, Quorra
Kevin and I FINALLY got Noah in the pool! He had a blast.
And my cousin, Kristin's son, George. Such a handsome fella!
After everyone had spent most of the afternoon in the water, of course it was time for cake and you know what that means at a first birthday party - SMASH CAKE!
The birthday boy had an awesome time eating his cake although he didn't get much of it in his mouth, he even sat on it at one point! It was an amazing afternoon and I can't believe my cousin, Nicole, has been a mom for a year. This time last year -- none of us had babies!
Sunday afternoon, we drove over to my aunt's house for our annual family reunion. It was so much fun catching up with relatives we don't see that often and they got a chance to see all five of the new babies at one time. (Five of us cousins had five babies within a year, if you're keeping up!) Most of our family hadn't met Noah so it was great to be able to introduce him!
This is how Noah spent most of the afternoon. Floating asleep in the pool!!
Mom with my nephew, Benjamin
The guys, Kevin, Tom and Andrew - this is how they spent most of the reunion, under the canopy with some cold beers!
I realize this post was super baby-filled but I can't help it! We're surrounded by them. It's so much fun when we can all get together. I'm excited for the upcoming year and more first birthdays, more family gatherings and of course, more babies! Our cousin Lauren is expecting this Fall so I'm hoping we gave her some good practice this weekend. ;)
How was your weekend? How did you stay cool?!
