Hula at the Luau Party

We celebrated Kennedy's 1st birthday with a big Hawaiian bash this past weekend. It was so much fun preparing, planning and decorating for the party and from what I could tell all our guests had a fun time, too. We had a ton of kids (19, I think) so thankfully the weather was nice and sunny and we were able to take the party outside too. Kennedy loved her cake and really dug into it. I'm still having a hard time believing that our baby girl is one year old but we sure had a good time celebrating this special milestone.

Thankfully my mom is in town and was here to help us celebrate Kennedy's big birthday!
We couldn't have gotten everything ready without her help.
Sarah and Kirstin were on hand to help us party

Can you believe how orderly this line is? I was shocked at how well everyone did lining up (from youngest to oldest), waiting their turns and then swinging away at the pinata. Impressive.

Kennedy managed to get her hands on some candy...this girl has a serious sweet tooth.

Getting ready for the big moment...CAKE!

Hmm...feels kind of funny.

But it tastes so gooooood.

Messy girl - she had frosting everywhere


  1. Yea! Happy birthday! I love her bib :)

  2. What a fun theme. Your daughter is so cute! I love the bib too. It's great. Did you make it?

  3. Ha! I only wish I had your creativity or talent to come up with that cute bib, Amber. I found it on Etsy and will definitely plan on giving them as gifts. I just love them!
