Garrett’s First Birthday Party…Nautical Theme

I finally got a chance to sit down and document G’s Birthday Party!!!  If you missed the first celebration of his birthday you can see it here.  And this is party 2….His Nautical Party!  So…here’s the recap, and a LOT of pictures

Whew!!!  It’s been a whirlwind of a week and I didn’t even leave the LKN area! My family got into town on June 29th, and moved into the Lake House they stayed in for the week on Saturday the 30th. Check out the view from the back deck, Not a bad sight to wake up to in the mornings!

We helped them unload and pick up a few things for the party, and the week, on Saturday; and took the boat out before having dinner and relaxing for the evening.  Garrett’s party was on Sunday and despite the heat (103) everyone seemed to find ways to keep themselves cool

Caden and his Daddy cooling down in the “Kiddie Carwash” made special by Dan and my Dad!

Our Boat!

Thank Goodness for Susan who kindly took my camera and made sure I had some pictures of the decorations and the party.  I got a lot of my party ideas from Pinterest and I ordered some of my decorations from Etsy….And of course….I put my own little spin on it as well.  Overall I was really pleased with the way everything turned out even though it was a LOT of work!

The Birthday Banner and some of the food

Plastic ware wrapped in rope with a lifesaver to secure it

We cooked all of the food and I did all of the baking, and it was quite the spread!

Nothing beats Sweet Corn brought all the way from Ohio!

Sailboat cookies!


A few of Garrett’s little friends came with their parents and we had about 30 people total which was a good thing because we had a lot of food!

Little Miss Hailey

Sweet Little Leia

And handsome Mr Luke Alexander with his Daddy

Garrett thoroughly enjoyed another birthday cake and got TONS of new presents!!

Including his very own book written and illustrated by his favorite babysitter…..Miss Taylor!

By the end of the day we were all pretty pooped but we had a blast!

And the rest of the week didn’t disappoint either!  It included a bit of this

A lot of these

And tons of time with my Sweet Boy!

We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends and we honestly could not ask for more!  Thanks to everyone who made G’s Birthday so special, even if he won’t remember it……I will forever cherish it!
