Hazel’s First Birthday

Cake smash, park, cake, and friends. This sounds like a typical birthday party right? Well it was, it was just for my youngest dog, Hazel. Before you think its weird, we had SEVERAL party crashers because people loved it so much! Hazel’s actual birthday was April 11th.

To start off, we had to do what every other parent does on their kids first birthday. We HAD to have a cake smash! We made Peanut Butter Pupcakes! Hazel didn’t do much of a cake smash, it was more of a “how much of this can I fit in my mouth..”.

"Is that for me?"
“Is that for me?”
Mmm crumbs...

After that, it was prepping for the party! We made homemade bacon treats, and home made breath mints! Then we stuffed the individual bags with all sorts of goodies! The girls’s grandma was awesome and made Hazel her own stamp to decorate the bags!

Finally the day of the party arrived. Hazel and Jean got together with their friends (Including one bunny friend!), and much fun was has by all! By the end of it, all pups (old AND young) were worn out! Hazel instantly fell asleep when we got home, too tired to even eat her dinner!
