Well this definitely isn't the kind of thing you usually see on my blog.. there's no lace, no blushing bride, no champagne toasts - and to be honest, I didn't even take these photos! My sweet, sweet friend, Mieke Snepvangers, came and photographed my little baby's first birthday party. Benjamin recently turned one and, of course, we had to throw him a crazy party that he wouldn't remember and go insanely overboard. Isn't that what everyone does? Thank goodness I have some amazingly talented friends that blessed me with their wonderful talents and didn't bat an eye when I told them I wanted to do! They actually threw crazy parties for their babies, too - so at least I'm good company. Back when I was pregnant, super pregnant in fact.. I got bored. So bored that I planned a first birthday party for a kid I hadn't met yet. He had a name and I needed a distraction - so Ben's Barnyard Bash was created. Thank you Pinterest! My friends, Eric & Shauna, own a super cool, red barn just down the street from me so it seemed like the perfect place to host a party. And what barnyard party would be complete without farm animals?? Yeah, that's right. Farm animals. (Like I said earlier, I went insanely overboard) Just scroll through the photos and see for yourself!
