On Monday night was Asher's birthday, but Nate had a gig that night, so we decided that we would have a little party on Tuesday night. On Monday, Mom and Asher met the Shafers at Seven Peaks for a night-o-fun. Asher LOVES to swim, so we thought that would be the perfect birthday activity. On Tuesday we had a little party with the Shafers, and Asher was so excited to have people over. This picture is the only one that I took on his actual birthday. It is so annoying to take pictures of him these days, cause he won't sit still or look at the camera.
First we ate dinner which consisted of spaghetti and garlic bread, then we let Asher open his presents. He didn't really care too much about the opening of the packages, but once they were open, he seemed to get pretty excited about most of the toys. After presents we sat him in his chair (with a drop cloth underneath) to have his first taste of cake. He was a little concerned at first and didn't really care for the feel of the frosting on his fingers. But once he had a taste or two, he warmed up, and by the end, he looked like he had eaten almost half of the little 6 in cake.
Here's a clean Asher...
And here is a messy, happy Asher...How cute is that kid??!!
We took video of all the highlights of the evening, opening presents and eating cake. He's pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself!! :)
