Happy Birthday to Rowena

We finally celebrated Rowena's birthday today with a small party. We enjoyed some nice company and some great food from Portillos--Italian beef sammies and chopped salad. YUM! And, we had Poppy's creamy, yummy mac-n-cheese. Of course, we also had a very tasty cake and then Rowe had her own "smash" cake. It was a great party, although the food, sadly, wasn't ready for over an hour! :(

Nichole hamming it up for me...everyone enjoying the foods
Donna (at her first kid's birthday party for the day) enjoying some veggies. I'm mad I didn't get a picture of her LEFT hand!!! (CONGRATS DONNA AND MATT)

Both PABs and Walter needed just a little time to warm up to others at the party...until then, they both were crying for Mommy! Nichole was able to keep it together with a beautiful smile the whole time!!!
A little unsure of what to do...
Katie is SOOOO excited to watch Rowena with her "smash" cake!
Sucking her thumb mid-cake eating!
Oooh! Big, Messy Bite!
Um, I'm not sure if I want more of this tasty stuff, or if I want a nap...
Now, that's how to eat a cake!!!
