Happy First Birthday

Curly had a big birthday on Wednesday. He turned one!! I can hardly believe it's been a whole year since that sweet little soul joined our family. We took him to a local restaurant for his birthday dinner and were served a gigantic piece of caramel pie to celebrate. He could hardly wait until it hit the table. When the waitress came around the table from the kitchen with the dessert Curly nearly jumped out of his high chair. She could barely put it down on the table before he had his mouth open waiting for a bite. It was hysterical and we all had a great time.

Then on the Friday we had a few friends meet us at a local ice cream shop for scoops and cake. My wonderful boss made the cutest cake for Curly. It was a big orange T-Rex with green spots. Curly was reluctant to dig in but finally did enjoy getting icing on his hands. He enjoyed his vanilla ice cream more than the cake, but then again, he'd never really had cake before and didn't know what it was. Ice cream on the other hand, is one of his favorite treats.
