It seems like about this time last year Benjamin was just born, so once the word got out that there was going to be a party Granny and Papa loaded up in the car for a road trip, we can always use a good excuse for a road trip and what better excuse than our Grandbaby is turning one.
Granny and Papa got there just in time to take charge so to say; well we at least took charge of spoiling Baby Benjamin.
Benjamin is walking really well so we were on our toes more than we figured and he is calling me Papa already, as for Granny he has not used that name as of yet, instead he came up with a name all his own “Mimi” pronounced “Me Me” is what he is calling Cindy so it appears for now the Grandparents formerly known as Granny and Papa are now Papa and Mimi.
Benjamin’s party went really well and he was a lot of help getting things ready for the crowd that would fill Tim and Elisa’s home for the big Birthday Bash.
There were balloons to be filled, yes we told the kids of the balloon dangers with little ones but I thought this was a cool picture, Benjamin did laugh a lot while Mimi gathered the balloons for Papa and I had to properly and safely dispose of them.
There was a lot of paper to be crumpled
Presents to be opened
Cake to share with Dad
And even cake for Momma
New toys for outside, (I think Tim has a future lawn mowing chore in store for someone)
And others for inside
But at the end of the day while Momma and Mimi cleaned up the mess that is always left after a Birthday blowout, Papa’s lap is where Baby Benjamin fell sound asleep.
Mimi and Papa were not too far behind him either.
