Lucy's First Birthday

We celebrated Lucy's first birthday at the end of July with a picnic, pie, and close friends.
It was a beautiful Chicago summer day, which also means windy. That didn't quite factor into my balloon and tablecloth plans, but it made it interesting! We packed Italian pressed sandwiches, dried vegetable chips, and fruit into individual brown boxes and served cucumber salad and deviled eggs on the side. Eden requested (and helped make!) blueberry lemonade to drink.

 We placed a few blankets out in our backyard and hung out with the birthday girl.

Lucy was about as impressed with her Strawberry Rhubarb birthday pie as Eden was with her first birthday cupcakes. Meh. I'll be honest, I was kind of disappointed by the lack of an enthusiastic pie face.

Guests were sent home with gummies in bug jars.

Lucy like her dinner on her head (yes, the box was full of food).

It was a great day!
