I wanted to do a simple, small party for Gavin. John’s parents were visiting and we had the missionaries in our ward over for dinner and just had hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill! Simple and fun. We had some activities for the girls, like tattoos, eye patches, and pirate hats, John made a treasure map and we buried some gold coins, and of course, a pinata since Kiley insisted.
Earlier in the day, we went to the Denver Zoo and to the kid’s favorite park right next to the zoo. We also drove around Downtown Denver so that John’s parents could take a trip down memory lane and we found the house where John lived when he was a baby. We were all worn out, but I had to throw a little party. There is no way that I could let my favorite boy’s first birthday go by without a party!
