Kicking off the birthday pit stop is Aria, celebrating her very first birthday on March 29, with me struggling through jet lag and sleeping through most of the party. Fortunately, I took a few decent shots before nap time got the better of me. My birthday is next on April 2nd and we finish up with Danny’s on the 11th.
ARIAS FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY
As usual, Dina goes wild with homemade decorations and cakes. This time she went into overdrive with the rainbow meringues. Bear in mind, that for all of the stress and preparation, the child will remember absolutely nothing of the proceedings.

ONCE AGAIN DINA DEMONSTRATES THAT THE KITCHEN-AID MIXER IS NOT GOING TO WASTE
It really doesn’t matter what she gets for her birthday since all she cares about is “Hammie the Hamster.”

ARIA CONTEMPLATES RETREATING UNDER THE TABLECLOTH WITH “HAMMIE”
In the window, 12 months of Aria are displayed beneath pastel raindrops. Dina shows off Aria’s one-year mini cake.
C’mon Aria, blow it out.
Aria claws and picks at her little-person sized cake. After securing some viable photos, I retreated to my bed upstairs and disappeared into jetlag oblivion.
