First Birthday!!

Our little baby is one year old!! His birthday was Tuesday, and we took off work to spend the day with him. We had great weather (well, great for St. Louis in August - about 88 degrees), so we took him on his first trip to the zoo! We saw lots of animals and Jack seemed to really enjoy himself.

How old is Jack?
Phew! The Zoo is exhausting!Tuesday night our families came over for pizza and ice cream cake. We sang happy birthday to Jack and then let the fun begin...

THEN, we had his big birthday bash on Saturday. We had about 40 adults and 20 kiddos in our average-sized house. Luckily the thunderstorms that were in the forecast stayed away, so we were able to utilize our patio with the help of some tents and some super strong fans (it was close to 90 degrees again). We did a Cardinals theme: the invitations looked like baseball tickets, a lot of us wore our Cardinals gear and we served ballpark food (brats, hot dogs, nachos, pretzels, peanuts, Cracker Jack). It was a good time!
