We held Joshua's 1st B-day party at my parents house in Dallas on Sat. at 11:00. We left for Dallas on Friday and were able to relax and visit with my parents and Sunil who flew in that day from Chicago. We stayed up that evening and decorated for the party. The theme was St. Patrick's so we had green and white streamers, shamrocks, multicolored balloons (rainbow).
About 50 friends and family were able to attend the party and it was great to catch up with everyone. I was surprised how many people actually wore green. Joshua stayed close to me most of the party and wasn't too receptive of being held by other people. He did enjoy playing with the other kids in the game room.
The fajitas we catered were pretty good and so were all the sides - salad, enchiladas, rice and beans, chips and salsa. The dessert bars were to die for - so much so that not many people ate the cake :)
Joshua's cake was a rainbow with shamrocks around it. Loved how colorful it was. By the time we cut the cake, Joshua was getting a bit tired. He finally took a nap after everyone left around 4:00 pm. Pretty long day for my baby but well worth it.
