17 Days of Benny – Day 12

Day 12 – Month 12

Benny turned one on May 17, 2004.  We enjoyed our day as a family and Benny got to have his first taste of ice cream cake, judging by the pictures, it was very much enjoyed!

He has a sweet tooth like Mamma.  Parker, Darcy and I sat around laughing at the dude as he covered every inch of his face with cake.

The next day we had friends and family over for his party.  Benny was overwhelmed with the amount of people and not at all in the mood.  For such a social guy, he was clinging to Parker, Tara, Sandy and I.  We did have a bounce house, which he loved, so that took some of the edge off.  It was a beautiful, over the top day and I wouldn’t change a thing.  It was the only birthday that we got to celebrate with our little guy and I will never forget it.
