Wyatt Turns One

Wyatt's big day was April 17.  We were so lucky to have all my family come up from Florida and Denver for his first birthday.  The day started with me finishing up Wyatt's smash cake.  

As you can see I'm an expert at cake decorating ;)
 Since Wyatt has a pretty early bedtime, we wanted to make our lunch his big birthday meal.  He was so lucky to have a slider and fries expertly cooked by daddy.

Everyone needs some junk food on their birthday
 Wyatt picked at his food for a little while then ended up eating just a few of his fries.

Why is everyone staring at me while I eat?
 Then it was cake time!
not so sure about this cake thing

mmm... but the frosting takes good

the sugar high has hit!
Wyatt didn't eat too much of his cake, or smash it. But I am pretty sure liked it!  After he was cleaned off it was time to open presents.

 Then we attempted his 12 month photo shoot.  First of all, I couldn't believe that we finished his series of ties!  When my sis gave them to me, I could never picture getting to the end.  Now they are all gone... boooo. Wyatt must have not liked that either, because he was not having it.  I couldn't get one smile out of him.  I even pulled out all my tricks, like saying "poopy". That little boy was not budging.

 It has been a whirlwind of a year.  Everyone told me his first year of life would fly by, and it truly did. We had an amazing day filled with laughter, love and family!  I am so excited to see what his next birthday has in store for us.

Welcome to My Blog!

Hi there!  I am so glad to be blogging again.  Since starting my previous blog, Will Jog for Food, many things have changed in my life.  I got married, started moving across the country (and now Canada), and had a beautiful baby boy.  I wanted my blog to reflect my travels, my never ending love of food and new priorities as a mommy.

Our last week in Cali
Since I saw you all last we made a huge move, from beautiful northern California to cold Canada. We moved here in November and I am just SO happy that spring is finally here!  Now that temperatures are finally above freezing, we can really explore Toronto.
 
Our first week in Canada, of course an IKEA trip was in order!

Wyatt has transformed from my adorable baby to my rambunctious toddler.  He turned 1 on April 17 and since then he has been running around like crazy.  Being his mom is rewarding, fun, and tiring!
Getting ready to terrorize the park
Of course I have tried plenty of "new to me" food up here in Canada. First up is my guilty pleasure... Poutine.
The best poutine yet... Duck Confit, Fois Gras Sauce, and Sharp Cheddar
... and the Peameal Bacon Sandwich
Get in my belly

Many more food and fun adventures to follow.  I am so excited to share my journeys with you!
