Happy Birthday Tiger!

I cannot believe it has been almost a year since Tiger was born on April 7th!  Most of Sara and Blake's extended family lives down in SoGA so to include more of them in this celebration, they held his party on Sunday April 1st in Camilla, GA
Tiger's cute cowboy onesie! 
He was a little shy at first with all those people there but soon got into the swing of things!
Lots of hand clapping!

As you can tell Sara choose a cowboy theme
Chips, trail mix, fruit platter and plates and napkins on this table
Hot dogs and chili on another table!
Tiger loves to eat and loved these fresh strawberries! 
After eating a little play time while the adults finished their lunch
This cowboy hat lasted about two seconds!
Playing with some of his cousins
Sara brought out the cupcakes! 
White cake with cream cheese frosting
She had the cute cowboy cupcake toppers we had made and used a T for Tiger on the rest
Tiger's Special Cupcake
Daddy lighting the candle
Tiger says what's this??
Just out of reach while we sing
Happy Birthday
His little face glowed!
Hmmmmm what's this?
Is it something to eat?
Not sure??
First bite.....yum!
Dig in! This is good and sweet!
Every time Tiger would take a bite we would all clap and he got such a kick out of that and he would clap along with us!
Our Happy Little Buckaroo!
We tried again with that hat! Look at the cake all over him.  Sara picked white cake for a good reason!
After a little clean up, time for the presents!
Lots of Books!
Toys, clothes and diapers!

It was a wonderful party.  So much love and happiness!  Sara and Blake did a great job!
We had a little display of some photos of Tiger from birth thru 11 months old!  So much fun to see how he has grown!
Lots of Aunts, Uncles and Cousins!
Tiger has 4 Grandma's & Grandpa's, 2 Great Grandpa's and 4 Great Grandma's
all but one was there to celebrate.  My Mother lives in Texas and was not able to attend.
This is Great Grandma Rentz (Sara's Dads Mom)
She made Tiger a special quilt! 

It was such a lovely time!  Sara had a photographer friend taking photos and I hope to share some of those when we get them! 
For me the trip was
Lodging for two nights....$110
Roundtrip Gas................$ 75
Being there to share Tiger's 1st Birthday.....

If you are still here after all these photos
Thank you! 

Hugs from Grandma Linda
