While we were there, Grandma and Grandpa were kind enough to help us throw a first birthday party for Mairead so that the NY family could share in her birthday without traveling to Boston. The slideshow on the next post includes some great shots of Mairead enjoying her first birthday cake, opening gifts, and meeting some of her dad's cousins for the first time. Thanks to Grandma, Grandpa, Ry, Dave, and Rachel for a great time. And thanks to everyone who spent the afternoon with us on Sunday to celebrate our little girl!
'Toby' is Rachel's horse, but she was kind enough to share with Mairead.
Rachel was such a great cousin-- she helped Mairead drink her juice!
I swear, we don't make her pose for pictures like this. She LOVES books! Before or after a nap, she will sit in her crib and 'read' whatever book is in there. She looks at each page, turns the pages, and talks to herself. Her dad and I both love reading, so I guess she is catching on early!
We also went to Animal Land as part of our trip-- I will post those pictures later. I took so many pictures this past week that I need to spread them out over a few posts!
