Riley will be one in 3 weeks. But, we are leaving New Zealand before that, so of course we had to have our little Bartlett family celebration with Mark's parents before we left. We headed over their way for a delicious cafe lunch, where Riley devoured some of my eggs and bacon, and then we headed back to their house for some presents and cake. But not before snapping a quick photo before it started to rain too hard!
Once we got back to the house it was time for presents!! Check out Riley's new ride-on giraffe (complete with pull-along baby giraffe)!
After presents, we went right to cake. She wasn't too sure about the whole singing and candles thing, but definitely likes chocolate!
Although her favorite thing about the little celebration? The dog (Harvey). Riley LOVES dogs. She gets so excited and laughs and squeals and chases him all around the house. Does this mean she's going to want us to get a dog when she gets older?
I can't wait for more birthday celebrations to come later on this month!
