let’s party. smash cake session (fail)

In celebration of Ethan turning one (ONE!! Oh. my. How did that happen?!), we planned a smash-cake photo session in our back-yard. It was a simple concept really: dollar balloons and hat/banner from the dollar store, some cake with frosting, blanket, camera….smash. I really just wanted to do it for the cute photos.

But it didn’t go how I envisioned (aka, how pintrest seemed to advertise). Perhaps it was too close to bedtime. Perhaps it was too hot (yes, over 100 degrees) or too windy. Perhaps it was the sketchy blue frosting I got out of a tube. Either way, there was no smash involved. Some little nudging perhaps, and a little smear of frosting in the eye (yes, he rubbed his eyes with frosting filled hands because we were too close to bedtime….which started the crying). Oh well. I still got the photos. And the memories to go with it.

One screaming bath later. Little E went to bed. Poor guy may never want cake again (at least not the blue frosting).
