A Puppy Party for my big 1 year old!!
We had a birthday party for my Evie girl on Saturday. Tomorrow she will turn one. It's pretty bitter sweet for me. I love that my baby is growing healthy and strong every day but I can't help but want her to stay little for a bit longer.
We had a great time with family and friends and of course, Dotty.
Dotty is the main reason for our puppy themed party. She is Evie's favorite toy. Evie loves this little stuffed dog so much. She pretty much picked her out on her own and hasn't stopped loving her since that day in Anthropologie about three months ago. I had to splurge and buy the $25 stuffed animal because the pure joy it brought her was priceless.

We had Evie's party at Cosmo Dog Park in Gilbert. (If you haven't been, you must go! It's a great park for both people and dogs.) Evie loves her big brother, Big Boy, so we wanted to include him in the fun. Besides that, the park was the perfect location to accommodate us all.
After I had the pup cake finished and sitting in the fridge, Boyd decided she needed a collar and tag. I thought it was the perfect finishing touch.

Sorry guys. I know I said I wouldn't, but I just had to!
A big thank you to everyone who came, helped and for the adorable gifts. We love you.
