A Whale of a Time
by Ashley Weeks Cart
Kaki’s first birthday party was a small but festive affair. You can certainly tell that she’s the second born given the limited guest list. I went all out for Sunny’s first birthday. Remember these? While Courtland’s “party” was also on Cape Cod like big sister’s, this time it was limited to my nuclear family and my dear childhood pal and her 11 month old daughter. I had no grand plans or crafts, and it is with many thanks to my mother that the party was as Whaley cute as it was. Let that woman loose in a party store, and she’ll get it done.
Here are my favorite snaps from the day. I don’t think any image will ever top the one of Courtland and Alison wailing in distress at the torture of having to don birthday hats. Positively amazing. That’s going in her graduation slideshow. Count on it!
