Emerson's First B
After months of meticulous planning, do-it-yourself-ing and practice cake-smashing, we celebrated the birthday of Emerson Rose Daniel as she entered toddle-hood. Proud parents Heather and Rodney transformed their Pepperpine House into an Amélie-in-Tampa-themed party, complete with hot air balloon photo-shoots and a surprisingly not-lame ball pit.
The affair brought together dozens of friends, neighbors, family members and other pre-adults. And everyone's favorite older cousin Baby Maddox made a special baby guest appearance.
Ending promptly at 1 PM, the grown-ups and kids remained in a perpetual state of nap time for the rest of the weekend. We woke up only to eat an endless supply of beautifully-boxed lunches.
