We spent Ruthie's actual birthday together as a family. After we had prepared for her big party the next day, we spent some time at the splash park at the YMCA. I don't have any pictures because I wanted to enjoy every minute, not worrying about getting the perfect shot...
Then later that night we went to my mom's house where our extended families came together for a wonderful dinner and Ruthie's first cake!
Ruthie is such a dainty eater that she picked off all the candy flowers FIRST then started tasting the cake!
After cake we opened a few presents from family and although she got some really good stuff, she was most happy with this little scrap of paper that kept her busy all night!! Oh, the money that we waste...But, the "birthday fairy" (aka my mom) left this sweet choo choo for Ruthie to keep at my mom's house! I can't wait until she's a little taller and can reach the floor!!
