When it's time to party we will always party hard!

We threw Oliver a party. When I first had the idea to throw something together for him, I didn't think it would be anything big...well, it turned out to be huge (to me).

Of course we had a pinata! This was something that I loved as a kid. My mom would always make us a HUGE pinata and so I thought I'd do the same for my kids (minus the making part...I'd rather buy).

Batter up! These kids had some wicked swings but I think out of all of them, little Oakley's was the best.

Although they swung like mad, we still had to bust open the poor little penguin when his head fell off.

Oliver was spoiled by all his cousins. Thank you so much for bringing him such nice gifts.

We sang happy birthday...Baker style of course. And then indulged in the oh so chocolaty birthday cake. Thanks Costco!

We even let Oliver stay up way past his bedtime to have a cookie and a shower and take a quick family picture.

September 12th 2010 was awesome. Thanks again to everyone who came out to celebrate Olivers Birthday with us!

Yay! Happy birthday Oliver--he looks so cute and absolutely thrilled in every picture. You are a good momma! Maybe next year we can be neighbors and Cash will be big enough to join in the festivities:) Love you and miss you.

Loved the party and I am glad the pictures turned out. I was pretty worried.

Happy Birthday to Oliver!
