Rain Rain Go AWAY...

Come again when it's not Keaton's birthday!!

Last year on May 2nd 2008, w
e brought Keaton home from the hospital in the pouring down rain. I should have known that planning an all-outside birthday weekend on May 2nd 2009 was risky business. Our original plan included a day at the Nashville Zoo and family portraits at the park. Because of the wet weather, we resorted to an indoor playground (the Monkey Treehouse), lunch at Moe's, and home for naps...and later - hamburgers and cake. Despite the weather, we had a wonderful time celebrating Keaton's 1st birthday with plenty of family, food, and presents!

Here's some highlights from the weekend:

All my "Anderson" cousins!

Hanging out with Matthew!

Keaton ate nearly half of his 9"
round "smash cake" before we finally confiscated it! He had so much fun eating it by the handfuls and smearing it on his face.

After church on Sunday

At the end of the weekend, I was overwhelmed with thankfulness that Keaton is surrounded by such an amazing family (on both sides) that love him, pray for him, and are excited to watch him grow. We are so blessed!
