A first birthday

with 2 comments

and a party at the zoo.

This was actually a month ago now since she’s just turned 13 months old, but we’ve been moving and cleaning and busy and now sick, and so on.  Turning 1 IS a big deal, and we had fun throwing her a party.

The table and some decorations, with a view of the lake:

Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes (I made) and pieces of German style birthday “kuchen” – donauwelle (chocolate), apple cake, cherry pie, plum cake, cheesecake, raspberry-currant cake:

A small area we set up so the children could play inside:

Just outside, with lots of birds and ducks to feed:

The lucky girl got lots of presents, though she isn’t really interested in unwrapping yet.  (she still loves all her gifts) :

A few of her presents were more for me:

This toy has an English and Deutsch mode:

I really loved the idea of a party at the zoo and it turned out that, in actual execution, it went well (if I do say so myself).  The zoo staff was really helpful and the room was clean and the perfect size.  I think everyone had fun, whew!

A few more photos, just because.  Here is Baby A at the old apartment with flowers from the party. D says this shirt looks makes her look like she’s at a Renaissance festival.. :

Outside with her 1st year birthday present from mama and papa:
