Ava's First Birthday Party

My niece Ava's first birthday was Saturday in Palm Beach County.  After spending a week planning and baking, we loaded up the car, (including my mom who flew in to Orlando to visit and then have us drive her down with us for the party) and headed out for the 3 hour drive.

We arrived and set up the cake.

Isabel was immediately greeted by a two year old who fell in love with her. It was the sweetest thing!  He followed her around and kept kissing her cheek.

The party was pink and black, baby skull themed.  Rock & Roll, baby!

Ava was given her smash cake but she wasn't quite sure what to do with it.

We have some talent in this family. Big sis Brenda is an artist. She made a special gift for Ava and wrapped it in this amazing box she created too.

Awesome gift wrapping

Isn't it adorable?!?! All handmade.

Then it was time to get changed and get in the pool!

We then left mom down there to spend time with her other 2 daughters (Brenda and Vicky, Ava's mom) and  drove back home.
