Baby Jake's First Birthday or Pumpkin Extravaganza

Hi all, hope you had a nice weekend.
We had baby Jake's first birthday party. It was a big hit except for the blazing hot weather, which always seems to happen when this family throws a party. Jake had a good time, and wasn't too overwhelmed with all of the people being there. He loved his cake!!!
My daughter and I worked very hard to make this a fun, and over the top party.
The party was held in my daughter's backyard, and it was a group effort to get that pumpkin patch put together. My husband put all of those hay bales in place for us so that we could get the pumpkin patch together the day before the party.
All of the little ones who attended Jake's party didn't really mind the heat. They just enjoyed the party and the pumpkin patch.
We have already started discussing ideas for Jake's second birthday. I know, we are crazy, but it's a lot of fun.
Have a great week!!
Chat again soon.

Oh baby Jake Happy Birthday! I love the pumpkin patch and everything looks like so much fun. Yes, it's too hot, but I guess that's what we get for a cool summer. Take care, Martha

What a wonderful party. I can tell that you worked hard and boy did it pay off! Everything looked so cute. Jake is a cutie pie and you can tell that he did indeed enjoy his cake. Too bad about the heat. It looked pretty and fallish though.

What a lucky little boy. My sister and nephew both have October birthdays and we always had so much fun with the Halloween themed parties.
