It was a luau theme, as I shared in this post with the invitations and Jones Sodas. We spent a lot of time getting the backyard ready for the festivities. Thank goodness for having lots of help from friends and family - we seriously couldn't have pulled it off without them. Highlights included:

  • Jack napping for the first 45 minutes of his own party
  • JC's whole roast pig was a total success (he got one of these boxes and ordered the pig from a local butcher)
  • catering of the other food was done by Rutt's Cafe
  • Cindy making both a large beach scene cake that was incredibly delicious and a small smash cake that Jack barely put his finger in
  • having 2 sets of twins and 1 set of triplets in attendance
  • the mini bounce house and water table were a big hit
  • having over 60 friends and family in our own backyard celebrating with us

Considering I barely took any photos myself, seeing these pics on Instagram under the hashtag #jackarchibald1 was so fun:IG1 IG2So glad the little guy only turns 1 once because it took about a week for his parents to recover from all the festivities!
