We wanted to keep the work down for Samantha's first birthday, so we held her party at a park.
Samantha loves this park.
For food, we kept it simple and wholesome - Sandwiches, two types of veggie salad, veggies, fruit, potato salad (made by Samantha's Aunt), and picked beets and carrots. Nice and easy, but real food.
Drinks were what I called "Muddled Water".
Guests got to choose what to muddle in their water.
The main activity was making homemade ice creeam.
Samantha is ready to help.
Samantha breaks up ice while I add salt, and Aunt Katie turns the ice cream. (Everyone took turns with the jobs.)
My big cheat - a Costco cake.
Samantha is not sure of the cake and ice cream at first.
It turns out she likes it (shocker...), and wants to share it with me.
After presents, Samantha gives everyone a show on her new blow horn.
All in all, a good party.
