We invited a few friends over from the ward, and had a little birthday party.
Here is the crew:
Andy, Sarah, Eliza, Hunter, Chance, Madison, and Natalie
The traditional first birthday elephant birthday cake.
We waited for her to dive into the cake, but she just daintily took the ritz cracker (the ear) and took a few little bites.
Then she dove into the coconut, and a little bit of the cake, but not too much!
At the end of her party, Kelly brought two of our chicks inside on the hard floor and let the kids hold them and/or throw them around. Chance also made a game for the kids to play where they got to unwrap a package that had lollipops in it. It was sweet of Chance to come up with a game for the kids.
