Avery's First Birthday

On the way home from the beach David and I got to talking about Avery's first birthday party. Her birthday is coming up in just a few weeks, and so I finally decided I needed to get on with planning it! What we have found, since Luke’s first birthday, is that we have many family members who have kids now. The oldest of those children is 4, and the youngest is only 3 or 4 months old, so when we get together there are not only many, many adults, but there are many, many loud happy children and honestly our house just isn’t big enough for all that fun! So as we talked we tried to think of somewhere else to have her celebration!

We came up with Chick-Fil-A. I know it’s kinda cheesy, but really I think it’s the best place. Avery really doesn’t care where it is, and honestly she doesn’t care who is there, but I care more about who is there, so this works out great! The cost is limited to the food we order and the area of play for the kids is limited to the play area at Chick-Fil-A! It’s safe, fun and it’s somewhere that the adults can visit as well. So be it cheesy or not, my Baby Girl’s first birthday party will be held at Chick-Fil-A with kid’s meals for the kiddos, and nugget trays for the adults! There will of course be cake!

So to that end I got on Vista Print yesterday and ordered the invitations! What fun that was, and I cannot wait for them to arrive! They are cute, but not too cutesy and I got some matching thank you cards as well! Vista Print had all kinds of wonderful things on their site to make me want to part with my money!

Now, I just need to get the invitations here, addressed and sent out!!!

Count us in. We always love a good party. For Avery you could even get Carolyn to Hardees. She won't go for me.
