Our Baby Girl’s First Birthday, Ontario Science Centre Birthday Party

Soo…I never expected to be one of those mom’s that went crazy over a birthday….ummm…well maybe a little :p…Our baby girl has officially turned one today and we decided to celebrate this past weekend with our friends and family.   We have so many great friends and family we wanted to make sure we could see them all.  The perfect place for us was the Science Centre.   It was located mid-town, a place where Alexis goes to visit almost every other week, and there is tons of fun stuff for people to do.

Yes, I know, this party is more for us than her since she is only 1.  But we captured the pictures so hopefully she can remember them all since it will be the last big bang of a party she will have till she is 16.   The next party will be just be for the kids.

The theme of this party was Oh the Places You’ll Go!  The reason – I love this book and it is the book I read to her since she was born.   I also hope she gets to travel and experience so many more things in her life.

With the help of some awesome friends and family, we were able to pull this party off from a perfect sweet table made from love.  Cakes galore from Crystal included cupcakes, a smash cake, and a three tier cake.  Cookies, rice crispie squares, and pom pom balls from Marilyn just highlighted theme.   Not to forget the running around, cutting, gluing and late nights from Cousin J and Ms. Linh.   We also cannot forget Rovey Catering super team of Roger and Harvey – with the help of Miranda that made sure all our guests were fed.   They even made sure we had a noodle station – I mean anyone who knows me that soup and noodles are key staples in my diet J.  Last but not least is a key member of the Leon Chai Photography team, Mr. Kevin Chan who set up the photobooth.  We are lucky to have you not only as a friend but a partner in crime when it comes to shoots of all kinds – including our daughter.

This 3 hr party went by like a blur because we got a chance to see a lot of people we haven’t seen in a while.  I hope to get to see all of you more often at occasions beyond these crazy parties.   When I look back at the pictures, I know how lucky we are to have such fantastic people who have crossed our path in life.   I also know how lucky Alexis will be to grow up with so many friends in her life!  Thank you for all the love you have given to both us and our little girl.   This family thanks god everyday for the life we have been given.

This little family sends our love back to all of you.
