Well, we had Bethanie's 1st birthday party on Saturday, November 6th. The theme was "A Train Ride Through the Jungle." Bethanie's Grandpa Glen has been working on his train track in their backyard for over 20 years and finished it just in time for Bethanie's party. The train goes all the way around the backyard and is just amazing. We put animals by the track so that it was like a train ride through the jungle.
The party turned out well...it was a nice party with family. Bethanie decided to wake up nice and early that morning so she was exhausted but still did really well through the party. We had burgers and hot dogs cooked by the grill master, Bryan. :) Bethanie got lots of nice presents and enjoyed opening them (or playing with the wrapping paper). MaKenna (my cousin Chelsey's 2 year old daughter) helped open some of the gifts and also got to enjoy the train ride with her Daddy.
We had a monkey pinata that seemed to be indestructible...a bunch of strong men hit it HARD and it refused to break. When it finally broke, only a hold was made and all of the candy inside was melted. Haha. It was a good time.
Happy Birthday little 1 year old!!
