Today is our great niece’s birthday. Kyla is 1 year old today. Happy birthday Kyla!
We celebrated Kyla’s birthday one week early. Jared and Sara held Kyla’s birthday party on Sunday, May 1, from 2:00 until 5:00 pm at the Alwine Civic Center in Greensburg, PA. The party destination was a 3-hour drive, each way, for us. We hadn’t seen my brother and his family since Christmas, so I looked forward to seeing everyone.
The civic center was tastefully decorated with pink balloons, a large poster showing Kyla’s first year in pictures, and a pink curtain backdrop. After Jared and Sara welcomed us all to Kyla’s birthday party and Jared said a prayer of blessing for the food, we got in line for the buffet-style lunch. Food selections included fried chicken, hot and cold pasta dishes, ham, small rolls, and a grape salad. Dessert selections included pie, cookies and cupcakes.
Children who attended the party received a homemade hobby horse (cute), and a jousting lance and jousting shield made out of material.
Babies present at the party received a small plush toy. At approximately 3:15 pm Sara and Jared helped Kyla open her birthday presents. The cake smash was held after the presents were opened. The gift opening and cake smash were held in front of the curtain backdrop. We arrived early, around 12:30 pm and left at 4:00 pm. Bob and I are happy that we were able to attend Kyla’s birthday party. I created a Smilebox photo collage to share some of the highlights from opening gifts and the cake smash.
