The Big ONE

Yesterday (January 31) we celebrated another friend's big ONE.
Jack wanted to wear his favorite shirt because it's ironic.

We went to the Emily, Seth and Brooks's house. Emily turned 30 and Brooks turned 1. While we were there Cady and Ethan enjoyed the magnets on the fridge.

Then Brooks brought all the kids into his room for a rowdy party and he showed us his flash-face. Later we had a sham-WOW demonstration.

Today we celebrated Jack's first birthday.
He woke up to some presents from GiGi and Grandpa. He got one from Mommy and Daddy too, but those are not pictured here.

Then we went to dinner at the Victoria gastro pub. Jack spent some time walking around the restaurant. He made friends with a little girl eating with her mother at the restaurant. He made such an impression that she sent over a yummy banana dessert.

Did we mention that she's 6? (This really happened and it was too cute!) Jocelyn (the friend Jack made) came over to make sure he enjoyed his dessert. I really almost died. Our waitress showed up with this bowl and the candle already lit and then she said the little girl wanted him to have it and I had to fight myself to hold it together. It was just so sweet.

He loved it, the cold of the ice cream was surprising to him at first but that didn't stop him from digging in. He ate the WHOLE thing. He liked it so much he dunked his fries in it!

Our food was amazing. We all had a terrible time choosing from the menu. I totally recommend this place, it's a little pricey but oh so tasty and the things that are on the menu are truly unique! Jack, for the first time in his life, was full. He actually started refusing food! Those of you who know, know what that means.

Happy Birthday, Little Man!

Yay - I'm glad Jack had a good bday! That is too cute with the little girl (or older woman) at the restaurnat! I always knew Jack was a lady's man. We went to the Gastro Pub a month or so ago and also really enjoyed it - yum!

Was Jack born on 1/31? I didn't think that he and Brady had the same birthday!

No, Jack was born on the 1st. (Brooks is actually born on the 15th of Jan.)
