Tyler's 1st Birthday Party

Saturday afternoon we had a few friends over to celebrate Tyler's 1st birthday! His birthday isn't until the 28th, but we wanted to celebrate it early since we will be fishing with our family on his actual birthday!

And, with that... he had a fishing themed birthday!

Complete with a fish cake!

And 'fish bait' cupcakes!
Take home goodies...
Daddy set up a couple kiddie pools and the bouncy house, and the kids had a ball!

Tyler stood on the edge of the giraffe pool and splashed around a while before bailing out head first.
Addison, not so photogenic today, with a shiner....
Friday night she and Trevor were outside playing just before dark when Trevor comes running into the house saying Addison had hit herself in the face with a metal baseball bat...
Moments later, screaming Addison comes into the house with a dent in her cheekbone. Never said what happened, or accused her brother....
So whether she hit herself in the face, or it was her big brother, we will never know. But it sure left a mark, and an enormous black eye.

Trevor and the Heiken girls wore out the slide on this pool...
The Grill Master
Time for cake!
Singing happy birthday...
He needed assistance with blowing out his candle, and then big brother Trevor helped him start in on his smash cake...
Hesitant to try the frosting out...
Then there was no holding him back...
Here is Tyler this morning after opening all of his wonderful gifts! He made out like a bandit!!!
"Thank you to all my friends for coming to my birthday celebration! I hope you had as much fun as I did! And thank you so very much for all the wonderful toys and gifts!" ~Tyler
