Hamilton's Family Birthday

With our train cake and abundant family, we had quite a party. We enjoyed barbecue sandwiches and other delicious fare for birthday lunch, then we cut into the train cake.
We sang "Happy Birthday Cha-Cha-Cha" to Hamilton, and Claire's idea was to change the "cha-cha-cha" to "choo-choo-choo" in honor of the train theme. We also added a "whoo-whoo" to the end, and he loved it. He attempted to blow out his candles, though he still needs to work on getting enough air to come out to extinguish a flame. Hamilton thoroughly enjoyed his birthday cake especially the frosting.
We opened presents next, and Hamilton loved them all. After opening this "dog" on a string, he ran around pulling it behind him.
Uncle Travis gave him a water toy for outside, and those pictures will come later.
He opened his train set from Mimi and Pops, and the coffee table served as a perfect table for constructing a train village with help from Sissy, Pops, Uncle Douglas, and Uncle Travis.
