Postcards from the Lake: Turning One

We had quite an eventful Saturday on our first full weekend at the lake. Not only did we have the Fourth of July fireworks and cousin Bonnie's birthday celebration but we celebrated another birthday, too!


Our Little Little Guy turned one. Well, actually, he turned one this week but they were passing through so it was a good time to celebrate!


We had some time in the sand and some time playing!


And there were loads of smiles.


Of course, there was cake. "Happy Cake" as his brother called it.


And his brother had such fun blowing out the candle, we did it five times!


A present, of course. But the packaging was more fun.


Little Big Guy got more into the present than the birthday boy!


But there was lots of love going on!


Even if it wasn't particularly appreciated!


 We had to nab a photo or two of us with the birthday boy!


All very happy!


I think one could say that we all...


...had a ball!

I have to agree that "Happy cake" sounds better than birthday cake. Love the photos. x

Happy belated birthday to the little guy. Your grandsons are adorable, cute photos. Enjoy your day, have a happy weekend!

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

Aww turning one! I like how he comforts his brother (even if his brother didn’t!). Looks like he had a good time!

Cuties.

Joanne Huffman said...

Nothing better than time with the grand babies. And what cute ones you have!

La Table De Nana said...

Cutie patooties:)

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

Your baby grands are so cute! They look so much alike! I'm glad you got to celebrate the littlest grand's birthday. Hard to believe is already 1! It's good to have an older brother to help with present opening. Paul had no interest in opening presents at his party so his older cousin did the unwrapping.

The French Hutch said...

The first birthday is always so special. Looks like the celebration was perfect. Those two are such cuties and I know when they left it was much to quite! Enjoy them, they grow so fast.............

Victoria Zigler said...

Happy birthday to the little little guy. Of course, there has to be "happy cake" when you're having a birthday celebration. ;)

DUTA said...

What a wonderful age 1 year is! No cares, no memories. Just joy and cake.
Wish Guy many happy returns of the day!

Rita C at Panoply said...

I love your postcards from the beach, both this post and the prior one. Happy Birthday to Little Guy!

Carola Bartz said...

Having little ones around always brings so many smiles on our faces. These photos just tell how much fun you all had - they're wonderful!

Many Happy First Birthday Wishes to the little guy :)
Loved seeing all of the fabulous photographs.

All the best Jan

Jenny Woolf said...

Well, these are lovely and happy photos. It's great to see you and Rick having so much fun! Those kids are going to feel so lucky with the chance to visit you and be made a fuss of! The second to last photo is perhaps my favourite. Do you print them out and put them in albums? The twins' parents make a book of photos for them every year to say what they have done and where they have been, and they do love their "special" books.

DMS said...

How adorable. Celebrating a first birthday is a lot of fun. :) Great pictures!

Looks like everyone is having loads of fun at the lake and at the little one's first birthday. How precious those little boys are. I'm glad you are now at the lake and will have many wonderful weeks to look forward to especially as it looks like Rick is healing very well. Much love to all of you. xox

Lynne said...

Are you sure those two aren’t twins!
Adorable's indeed!
Great “candle blowing practice” for those who will be 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 . . . and more . . . surely to follow.
I haven’t met a little one yet who hasn’t enjoyed blowing out the candles!

Pam Richardson said...

How adorable they both are. Happy 1st birthday to the little guy!

Sandra at Maison De Jardin said...

Jeanie, I love this post. Such precious little boys - I know you and Rick adore them.

Have a lovely week.

Marilyn Miller said...

And it does look like you had a "ball" for sure. What fun little ones bring into our lives.

Evi Erlinda said...

Belated happy birthday Lil lil Guy !!

Danielle L Zecher said...

It looks like a great party. I like the idea of calling it happy cake.

Red Rose Alley said...

Happy Birthday to your precious grandson, Jeanie. I always love to see pictures of the boys. Looks like a fun celebration. "Happy Cake"....that's so cute.
