While Robby was down for his morning nap, I finished getting everything ready for the party and Tim and I got ourselves ready. Robby woke up around noon, so we got him all dressed up to greet his guests.
And took some pictures of all the decorations for the party.
We had chicken salad sandwiches, carrots and ranch, chips and salsa, and monkey cupcakes!
Everyone started arriving a little after 1pm. Grandma Gloria, Grandpa Bill, and Aunt Kathy were the first to arrive. Then GrandLaLa and Pepaw arrived.
We mingled, ate lunch, then began opening presents.
We went outside to get a few pictures (and sweet kisses!) and that turned into Robby taking a ride in his wagon.
When we got back inside, it was cupcake time! I was surprised at how neatly Robby ate his!
A little while after that, our friends, the Beattys, arrived. Robby enjoyed playing with them. I somehow didn't get any pictures with them, though. Everyone started leaving around 4. Robby had a blast and I feel like the party was truly a success!
For dinner, we went out with my parents to Mamacita's. Robby loved the atmosphere (and the beans!).
There is a robotic Davy Crockett that plays "Happy Birthday" on the fiddle whenever the servers are signing to someone who is celebrating their birthday there. After the first time, Robby was glued to Davy, so I asked our server if they could make him play again. He said he comes on about every 15 minutes or when someone is celebrating a birthday. We mentioned that it was, in fact, Robby's first birthday! Well, at the end of our meal they brought out a sombrero (that didn't go over so well with him) and some birthday sopapillas! He loved them!
He also loved the fountain that was in the entry area of the restaurant!
When we got back, he played with his new toys and spent a little more time with his LaLa and Pepaw.
He had a very full day but did great. He was so precious with everyone who came and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as he did!
