On Saturday, we decided to have a second party for him, but this time, just baby friends. I wanted to keep it super simple and easy going. Friday rolled around, and Saturday's weather was looking quite gross, so we moved the party up a few hours to avoid the heavy rain. As hours went on, friends apologetically canceled one by one, and really, that was okay. It was a super relaxing park picnic, and I think infant parties should always come with ease. Despite the rain, we really had an amazing time, and a pretty good turn-out. We all sat under a large tree in our favorite park, where we didn't even feel the rain.
I had always dreamed of having a baby who's birthday was in the summer, since River's is in the winter. I wondered about the decor and adorable themes, and how easy it would be. Even though it rained, this little get-together was so easy. We kept with a "natural" vibe, and I think it really suited the day and the occasion.
A few photos
Most of these photos were shot on our iPhone by friends. Thank you friends! Goodness, I can't believe a year has passed already. I know I might be a bit biased, but Oak is one amazing and sweet baby, and I'm honored that he close me to be his mama. Here's to many more!
And doesn't it seem like I just announced his birth?
