Happy Birthday Riggs!

We have had such a lovely day with our beautiful boy. This was all despite the weather, temperatures in the 40s and pouring rain, which I find especially funny since it snowed about 11.5 inches last year on this day. Riggs was adorable in his crown, and tried very hard to blow out his candle, but Mama had to help. He 'smashed' his cake somewhat gently and really didn't get very messy at all. The cake turned out so well (I got the recipe here) and we just frosted it with home-made whipped cream from full-fat coconut milk and make the letter 'R' with some blueberries...yum!

We ventured out in the terrible weather on very, very slick roads and headed to Eagle River to meet family at a new indoor play place.  My sister, Kelsey, I the idea to 'meet-in-the-middle' there and it worked out well since her boys got to play rather than having to sit somewhat quietly (and bored-ly) at our house.  It was great to see my parents and Kelsey and her family (my little sister Beka is back at college, hi Beka!) and Riggs loved opening his presents from them there.

It is amazing to me that he is already 12 months old, where does the time go?!  I was going to put his 12 months stats in this post like I do every month, but I think I'll do them separately so that this isn't the never-ending post :)  Happy Saturday to all, I hope you had a blessed day filled with light, love and warmth!
