Troy Sanders' First Birthday
Arvada, Colorado: February 27, 2015

One year old already! Troy is Mike's cousin's son - here he is in August visiting withmy family - Troy in August.
I went to his birthday party at Mark and Bella's house (his grandparents. Mike was at the Nuggets game). Here's his cake!

No hanging out on the deck today!

He's going to be walking soon. He can already pull himself up to things and barely take a step closer to them.

He decided he would like to open his presents sooner rather than later...

but his Grandma (Hailey's mom) stopped him.

Clara (Robert Sanders' daughter) and her cousin, Valerie (Rob and Rannae Lyon's daughter) were inseparable, as usual.

Troy decided to go his own way regarding which gift would be next:

Hat and sunglasses from his uncle, Robert - who was hoping it would mean Troy stops stealing his.

Troy didn't quite know what to think of the talking card:

Life of the party!
