Blakely's 1st Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my sweet little girl! She was one yesterday and we had such a great weekend celebrating her birthday. My mom flew in from South Dakota and my sister came from New York City to help her celebrate. It is so hard to believe that it has been a year already but it truly has been the best year of my life.

We celebrated Blakely's birthday on Saturday, June 4 at my in-laws house. They have the most beautiful backyard so they let us use their house to have a cookout and pool party. They did all the cooking and my sister, mom, and I did all the baking. The food was amazing and we had lots of family and friends who came to celebrate with us.

One of the most fun things about this party was making Blakely's birthday cake. I've always done cupcakes but never a cake and I was kind of nervous that it wouldn't turn out right. However, I was really happy with the end result and had a great time making it along with the cupcakes. I'll do another post later on how I put her cake together because it was so easy!!

 Happy Birthday my sweet girl!! I thank God every day for blessing daddy and me with your life. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for your life!
