Niels' birthday

I'm finally getting these pictures up. Niels' first birthday was a lot of fun. Since the weather was so nice we decided to go swimming. & Gary surprised us by finishing his studying early & joining us at the pool.
Kail loved it & would not get out of the water even though he started to freeze

Lily wouldn't get in the water

And all Niels wanted to do was drink the water so he was pulled out. by that Wednesday he had a fever- I was mostly blaming it on his teething but I don't think the pool water helped-yuck!

Kail & Lily couldn't resist helping Niels open his presents

I don't think Niels minded

His favorite toy of all was this bug band, he was so happy to be encouraged to bang on something.

and just like we did for Kails 1st birthday, we got Niels some balls (he he)

I got the cake from Whole Foods and wasn't expecting much but it was like a miniature Costco cake- the giant chocolate kind- mmmm

Niels mainly played with it- he's not a huge fan of chocolate or other sweets

Lily on the other hand was begging for a third piece, I had to put my foot down & she wasn't too happy about it

I still can't believe how time flies!
