My little guy turned 1! It's amazing how a year ago he couldn't do much and now he is walking, climbing, interacting with others, constantly on the go, and the list goes on and on. We had Rylan's 1st birthday party a few weeks before he turned one so that we could celebrate with family while we were in Oregon. It was also nice having my creative mom around to help out a ton. Here is a recap of all the fun and festivities of the party.
