I promised a post on Bennett's first birthday so this is it! I am so excited to finally post about it! Michael and I decided to do a Sunday Funnies Poolside Brunch.
I loved loved loved this theme because it fit Bennett perfectly! He's such a morning person (hence the the brunch), is quite the hilarious little man (hence the funnies), and loves a good time in the pool (hence the pool party).
It was a challenge at first to come up with a way to make this into a party with decor, cake, food, etc, but me being me, I was of course up for the challenge! Pinterest wasn't much help so I was on my own for most of it- but it gave me a theraputic outlet at the end of my busy mommy days :o)
Here all the shots from the party day! It was an awesome day spent with very close friends and family!

On Bennett's actual birthday a week later we took him and cousins on a train ride, played at our favorite park, and went to Brixx for dinner to celebrate where I went into labor with him! And of course had cake....again!!

It was a great way to celebrate Benn's first birthday!
