Easter and Birthday Celebration

Easter Morning
Nate got an easter basket from the easter bunny with all kinds of yummy treats and hot wheels cars. It was fun to watch him play with the cars and of course he loves the candy! He went on an easter egg hunt sunday morning for the hard boiled eggs we ate for breakfast. He loved finding them and thought they were really fun to throw!

Birthday Celebration
We celebrated Nate's 1st birthday sunday night with family and friends. I made an attempt at making a 3 tier cake, but as you can see from the pictures it was falling. Arent there cakes that are suppose to look like they are falling? We can pretend that this is what I was going for :) The frosting was kinda melted so that didnt help either! It might not have looked the best, but it sure did taste yummy! Nate really liked it so thats the most important thing :) Nate got so many fun presents! Our new house will be full of toys! After nate opened his presents he clapped to let everyone know he loved his presents. He also clapped after taking bites of his cake. It was so cute! He is such a joy and you cant help but smile when you watch him play! We are so thankful to skylers parents for letting us have the party at their house. We thank everyone who came and mades nate's 1st birthday such a special day! We love you all!

Grandma Nelson's easter egg hunt at the park
My mom had an easter egg hunt at the park by her house for tyler and nate. It was so fun and they both absolutely loved it! They were so cute finding the eggs and once nate realized there was candy in the eggs he would find one and crack it open. It was so funny! After they found all the eggs they played on the playground. It was nates first time ever playing on a playground and going down a slide. He had the time of his life! Once they were all done playing at the park we went home and gave them a bath. They had fun splashing and playing with toys in the tub.

Those pictures made me homesick. I wish I could have been there. nate looks like he was having the time of his life. That's what it's all about. And the cake looked great in the pictures. At least you attempted something more than I did. Good for you.

Good for you for making the cake! I felt so intimidated about making one (since Matt's mom is an amazing cook), so I just ordered one from Sam's. Looks like it was fun!
