A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Brooklyn's first birthday. It was a sunny hot Saturday afternoon, the perfect day for Chantel and Ian to host a backyard barbeque at their beautiful place in Coquitlam for all the friends and family. There was some awesome catered food, Ian manned the BBQ, and Chantel had been baking cupcakes and cakes for weeks. They even had a bouncy castle for the kids that I was very tempted to go jump in. Especially considering how tall some of the kids were, I don't think anyone would've noticed me!
Brooklyn was at first a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people in her usually quiet home, but she soon came around and started to enjoy her special day. Especially her birthday cake which she thoroughly enjoyed eating with her hands and making a big mess.
We had a great time chilling with friends and celebrating the first of many birthdays of little Miss Brooklyn.
