On Saturday I was invited to the 1st birthday party for my friend Sabrina's twins, Andre and Aliya. After another gruesome drive up 95, I arrived very late but with plenty of time to hang out with everyone. I had such a great time! It's hard to believe the difference between my visit 11 months ago and the birthday party this weekend.
Here are a few pictures...

Everyone awaits the Happy Birthday song ...
After the song and the candles, Andre and Aliya sample the icing...
... which they didn't understand ...
... and, it turns out, they didn't like! It was so cute... they got into the ice cream part, though!
