Owen and his 4-wheeler noises

Happy Birthday Owen!

He took off walking with it with a huge smile on his face. Not to mention he continued to make car sounds while pushing it around. He is such a fun boy! Happy Birthday Owen.

Uncle Aaron and Aunt Sheena gave him a cute walker, car, dump truck toy which he immediately loved.

This is what mom and dad gave Owen for his birthday. He thought it was great for a minute. Maybe he will like it more in a few months?
After the party I gave Owen his bath and he got to wear his new jammies from Grandma Bowen. He wanted to play with his bubble blower from Sadie & Joey before bed. He had a hard time settling down after the fun day!

Finishing off everything but the outer crust! Imagine that! 1st birthday tradition is to have the kid make a huge mess but Owen stayed pretty clean. Had I been a great mom, the cake called for sliced bananas and whipped cream but I wanted to avoid everything coming back up after he ate it!

Starting it off......

Singing Happy Birthday to the birthday boy! I was hesitant to give Owen the full on cake that I had planned because his tummy wasn't quite ready for a load of sugar. I made him a miniature banana cake and he loved every morsel of it.

Skylar and Chylee after the treasure hunt. Thanks for coming guys!

Owen enjoyed opening his presents. He loved the tissue and wrapping paper.

Owen's party was a pirate theme so I had to get eye patches and earrings for the kids to wear. Uncle Aaron was a great sport!

Daddy and Owen took a pre-party nap. It was so tender to see Owen in daddy's arms. He loves his daddy. Daddy loves his little Owenski...

Grandpa Rex came over the night before Owen's birthday and brought him some fun presents. He gave him a car, hammer and a little ABC wheel. Thanks Grandpa!

Owen was sick all last week with a flu bug on top of teething. I had him into the doctor twice to make sure he was going to survive and for my own peace of mind. He hasn't ever been this sick before so I was really worried. He would just lay on the floor and not want to play! It broke my heart to see him so out of it.
