Our last 1st Birthday Party happened this past weekend.
It was a Very Hungry Caterpillar Party.
Do you remember all of the foods that the caterpillar eats through? Let me remind you:
- the caterpillar eats through a single red apple, two (green) pears, three (purple) plums, four strawberries, and five oranges, which takes us from Monday to Friday.
- Saturday: the caterpillar eats its way through many different foods: chocolate cake, ice-cream, a pickle, Swiss cheese, salami, a lollipop, cherry pie, a sausage, a cupcake, and a slice of watermelon. (via Wikipedia)
We had a short story time reading the book and reminding everyone of all of the foods the caterpillar ate through.
And there was play time.
PS- Special Thanks to Mr. Dunbar who put up with my craziness for a week and then just went along as I tried to not bark orders.
My dad who picked up tables and chairs.
My mom who helped set everything up and put up with 25 phone calls for napkins, plates, ribbon and whatever else was on my brain that minutes.
My MIL who let us use her house.
Isn’t my MIL’s backyard amazing? When I called to thank her for letting us use her space she said, “That’s what a home is for. For the kids to run and play and use all of the space with lots of noise and laughs.” I love that.
