I wanted to share a few insta-shots from my nephew’s first birthday. Mostly because he’s so cute. And I really don’t think I’m just saying that because he’s my nephew, or because I’ve been told he looks like me, he really is a cute kid. They say he looks like me. Did I say that already?

As mentioned the other day, the theme was Kentucky Derby. It was just a small gathering of close relatives and few friends. And lots of food. There was some KFC in the house.

one of the most moist cakes I’ve ever had. I’m not even a cake person, but this was as good as it was cute.

Time to start planning birthday number two.

Happy Wednesday!
