First Birthday Party!

First Cake
Guess who's turning 1?  Little Miriam!  What a lovely day.  We went to the Gertrude Boyden bird sanctuary and it was a lovely day.  The temperature held in the mid 70s, the sun was shining, the wind blew the bubbles far and the charcoal hot. 

The burgers were really good and the sides were wonderful.  Auntie Dorinda made fresh goofond and jag.  So nice to have those Cape Verdean classics at the party! 

Miss Miriam is crawling around and almost ready to walk. 

She's been eating organic food and very limited exposure to refined flour or sugar.  We set the cake before her and she didn't quite know what to do with it.  She enjoyed squishing the frosting between her fingers.  She ate a little of it. 

Which Costume?

We weren't sure weather to take Miriam out for Halloween or not.  My chorus has a fund raiser at the end of October that I can bring the family to.  That would involve dressing her up.  We are considering costumes.  Which do you like?  Vote in the poll!
