Happy Birthday to you! June 17, 2013

I’m going for the record of ‘most 1st birthday posts ever’. How am I doing so far? ha! I can’t help it. My Mommy-and-Me teacher told me to celebrate as much as I want. So we did! After all, you only turn ONE once!

After our fun lunch, we set up a drop cloth (the same one from our studio photo shoot! And… yes. It still had cake crusted on it from that cake smash.) Anyways, we found a shady spot under a big tree that looked out over the hotel golf course, and we let the birthday girl enjoy her first official birthday cake.

She wasn’t sure what to make of it. I don’t think she realized it was food. She wasn’t too interested at first.

So we gave her a few tastes…

And then it clicked. Cake is good! I love cake! I want to eat more cake!

So that’s what we did… we sat in the shade, and we ate cake. And we celebrated our #1 girl.

I’m pretty sure Adele ate half the cake by herself. Who was I to stop the fun!

After all three of us were covered with pink frosting, we cleaned up by jumping in the lazy river and doing a little bit of swimming. Then when we all came down from our sugar high, Adele took a nap in the room while Irving and I chatted. I love mini-vacations!

When the birthday girl woke up, we headed out to the restaurant where birthday dreams are made of: The Cheesecake Factory. Yes!

The waiter saw Adele’s birthday hat and brought her a special birthday treat! Her very own bread basket with baby-sized bread and a sliced banana! Isn’t that so cute!?

Adele went to town on it! She knew it was just for her.

We had a great meal, it was so much fun. Happy Birthday, Adele! Hope you had a great birthday weekend! We love you so much!
