Peyton’s 1st Birthday Party!

We celebrated Peyton’s 1st birthday on Saturday June 4.

It was hot and sunny and we were all huddled in the shade but we had so much fun celebrating our little girl on her first birthday!

We had both sets of grandparents, Aunt Amanda, and cousin Chansler all here to help us decorate and celebrate!  Plus many of our closest friends came over!

We made sure we measured Peyton on her measuring stick (one of her Christmas gifts from us!) first thing in the morning.

We spent all of Saturday morning decorating outside and preparing the food that we couldn’t/didn’t the night before and icing the smash cake and cupcakes.

I was nervous about Peyton’s reaction when everyone gathered around to sing happy birthday but I don’t know why… Peyton loved it!  She smiled at everyone and clapped when we were all done singing!
