Jesse turns one

We celebrated Jesse's first birthday with our families the weekend before last.

We had the party at Big Guy's and Nonna's with a red, white, and blue theme for the birthday-near-Independence-Day-baby.

Jesse's monthly photos on the clothesline.

Time for dinner! (The girls picked the menu: hot dogs, tuna noodle salad, fruit salad, deviled eggs, grilled broccoli.)

Jesse kept the party hat on for awhile.

The life of being the youngest: your older siblings take your gifts as soon as you open them.

Of course, we had dirt dessert!

Jesse blew out the candle with his hand.

Trying out the new bubble machine.

We swam and swam, but I was in the pool and thus not taking pictures. Jesse trying out his new wheels!

A photo with Pop-Pop and Nana.

And a photo with my favorite people.

Happy Birthday, Jesse! We love you!
