Hailey's 1st birthday party

We celebrated Hailey's 1st birthday a little early on July 3rd. We had a weekend long bash with family. It was a lot of fun and we were sad to see everyone go!

It had been raining for days beforehand (thanks Hurricane Alex... we took two days off work to work in the yard and that all didn't happen...), but it finally stopped that Saturday. So a lot of us got some pre-party swimming in. Synchronized cannon balls seen below...

I am not creative AT ALL on party decorations, unlike my friend Kelly and my sister in law Amber. But here's my best shot at putting out pre-made stuff :)

Hailey takes bows and headbands off immediately right now, so this is the only shot I got of her in her tiara. (We learned a few days after her party that she most likely had a double ear infection at her party. She doesn't quite look like herself in the pics. She had also just gotten over pinkeye. It's been a fun couple of weeks.)

Enjoying the meal! Steve made ribs, potatoes, and naughty green beans. Yum!

As always, Laura was a great help but more importantly, a fun addition to the family :)
The cakes...
The cake destroying... she was hesitant at first but once she got into it, she got messy very quickly!

Thanks to everyone who made the long trip to celebrate with us, and sorry to those who couldn't make it due to previous plans. We can't believe our precious princess is almost 1! (Two more days!)
