On Monday he celebrated his first birthday.
He seemed to get the idea of presents remarkably quickly and resisted any attempt to help him open the gifts.
After breakfast, presents and playing with balloons, we headed down to town to Petroglyph for some crafty birthday activities. Finlay painted a spaceship money box.
Nancy painted a cupcake trinket box. Gill and Ned painted a plate.
and of course we ate cake from Icing on the cake . Ned made the excellent choice of banana cake.
Happy Birthday Ned, I'm glad you were able to celebrate with us in California.
