Julia turned one on August 4th, 2007. Not that she knows what that means, but a child's first birthday is very important to the parents. There's something strange about that first birthday that tends to make parents go overboard. This party was no exception. The party took place on the second floor of a firehouse. The party allowed a lot of free space for the kids to run around, which is pretty much all kids want. Add in a buffet of food from Jerry's and an entertainer who thinks she's a moose, and you have the makings of a fun first birthday party that Julia will never remember.
The kids seemed to enjoy the entertainment with nutty Marcia the Moose, who played a guitar, sang and performed a magic show. I disliked her as soon as she started performing since she made my nephew, Marko, cry. But she did gain a few points back seconds later after I saw Marko having a good time.
Thankfully, the kiddies were too young to notice Marcia's wackiness and they rather enjoyed her show.
Of course, the stars of the party were all the munchkins that helped Julia celebrate her Birthday:
Cousin Kayla who left an earlier Birthday party to make it to Julia's.
Friend Jordan who looked so adorable in his grown up hat and refused to take it off for the most part of the party.
His baby sister, Mina, who can out-screech David and , I am sure, soon will out-talk him as well.
Friend Olivia who was a social butterfly of the party.
As every party, it had to come to the end , but not until the Birthday cake was served and not just any cake, but a Carvel ice cream cake. Jordan called it a "high five cake" and since it is coming from a desert expert, I take it the cake was a hit.
Happy 1st Birthday, sonechko!
