Happy Birthday, Elijah! (And Cousin Tubby Time)

A really fun side benefit of spending the week together in Minnesota during the time of year we were there was that so many of the family members had birthdays within a month or so.  It was a week of celebrations, with each day representing a different person's birthday!

First, we had Elijah's first birthday!  Happy Birthday, Big Boy!  We were so excited to be with you to celebrate your first birthday:

Alice was excited to help Elijah enjoy all his new toys:
Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream!:
Alice was impressed by Elijah's cake - specially designed after one of his favorite toys - the iPad!  Here he is, trying to press the "buttons" while Alice looks on, amused:
Mommy worked for about a year and a half on this cross stitch for Elijah and we were thrilled to be able to frame it in Minnesota and give it to him for his birthday:
Once the birthday celebrations were over, Alice and Miranda resumed what became a nightly tradition during the vacation - cousin tubby time with Grandma! 

Here are the rest of the photos from Elijah's birthday party.  Happy birthday, kiddo!
