Anna June does not spend every weekend at the zoo. Last weekend, she went to her friend John Clarke's house for his first birthday party. His mom, dad, aunt and grandmother are all my friends on Facebook and have all posted pictures. I did not bring my camera to the event, figuring the paparazzi would be there in full force. For some reason, AJ wasn't the star of this well-photographed party. :) Thanks to them for the pictures!
Shelley baked a train-shaped smash cake for John Clarke, and iced it in red, yellow and blue. It certainly achieved the desired effect! He loved it and was absolutely adorable.
Anna June, for her part, was well-behaved, although she ate her red velvet cupcake at a snail's pace! She looked out for the younger babies and enjoyed playing in (and drinking from) the sprinkler toy with the older kids.
