Almost one month later, I've finally gotten around to posting the post of all posts, the post you've all been waiting for--THE BIRTHDAY POST. We had quite the big b-day bash for our little guy. And since we all know that I can be a bit wordy, I thought I'd break down the festivities in an easy to read, precise (and brief--well brief for me) fashion. So, here's the break-down of the b-day bash:
The guest of honor:
William Grant Madsen
Nate, Amy, Beth and Sam Madsen (our favorite Vermonters)
Jane Madsen (Will's twin aunt)
Josh & Jessy Madsen
Friday Night: dinner at Five Guy's Burgers (best burgers in town) to celebrate the eve of Will's birth (this is where Josh and I ate the night before Will was born, so we thought it would be fitting to eat there on the eve of Will's b-day).
Breakfast: steel-cut oats with raspberries, blackberries and almonds. Will's favorite breakfast at the moment
Ball party at the church, including a ball obstacle course and a disco ball. Don't be jealous of the fun we had.
Nap: everyone in the house (except Beth) took a nice afternoon nap. Nice work, everyone.
Sledding: Will still hates it. Even on his b-day.
Dinner: Meatballs. Will's absolute favorite: meat in the shape of a ball. It doesn't get better than that. B/c everyone took a nap it was a tad bit late and the kids ate quickly before the adults. After the kids went to bed, the adults had a nice, relaxing long dinner of yummy spaghetti & meatballs sans kids.
Cake: in the shape of a baseball since Will hearts ball. Freaked Will out. He eventually decided to eat the ice cream but wouldn't have much to do with the cake.
Now here are the photos, documenting the fun that was had by all. To ease your viewing process, I've broken the photos into three groups.
And that's all there is. Whoa, I'm tired just posting about it. A grand time was had by all and we want to give a big shout out to our out-of-town guests for taking the time to come to Will's first b-day! Happy b-day, Willy!
Oh, and if you didn't get enough, here's the video of Will getting his b-day cake.
