April was a full month...and Jack's first birthday was definitely a highlight. I owe him an apology for letting his hair look so bad. I was blinded by love? Seriously, it's bad...and at the time? I thought it was the cutest thing in the world!

water table fun

peeking in on his cake the morning of his party...sadly, there was a slight mishap with the stacking of the cake that left me crying and Tommy declaring that we would never again bake our own stacked birthday cake. And, starting with that very afternoon, we've had very solidly stacked, yummy Plehn's cakes ever since.

Terrible photo but rare that were all three in a photo together so it made the cut! A great dinner at Napa...Lib, me, Al.
