Iva’s First Birthday Party

What started off as a normal, one-year old’s birthday party,

and a very very sweet one year old

and open lots of presents

and play with her new toys …

quickly turned into something else altogether.

Uncle John surprised Ivalee (and her parents) with a Petting Zoo right on our front lawn.

You have never seen a child as excited to ride a pony as my nephew, Nathan. A fact which, I’m sure, made his horse-loving momma very happy! 🙂

It turned into quite the party. We were all very pleasantly surprised and had a lot of fun! Thanks, Uncle John!!

There are lots and lots more pictures that I, ultimately, need to edit. But they’re uploaded Straight Out of the Camera onto my Flickr account.
