Ryu’s 1st Birthday


Ryu’s birthday lands on July 28. However, we decided to go on and celebrate his birthday on 2 occasions. We opted to have his birthday dinner at our favorite Pho place with close friends and family. We then decided to throw him his 1st birthday party at the same park I had my baby shower at (Lake Balboa Park).

At the pho place Ryu had pho broth and vegetables from his dad’s chicken fried rice. What I absolutely love about Ryu is that he’s not much of a picky eater. You can sort of let him try anything and he’ll try it and eat it. I mean of course there are some things he doesn’t enjoy eating, but for a kid at his age I’m glad that’s he’s not super picky.

I still need to upload the rest of the pictures. I thought that I had uploaded them on to FB, but I guess I haven’t done so. Honestly, I also realized that not all my images are watermarked, but that’s cause I just upload them on to FB. Btw, thanks to all our friends who showed up to Ryu’s birthday dinner last minute. It probably wasn’t the best dinner, but he was having an actual birthday party so this was just for something we can enjoy as a family.

Ryu’s Birthday Party


Ryu had his 1st birthday party at Lake Balboa Park (where we had my baby shower at). This time around we were able to reserve for a bungalow which made things a bit easier for us. We even decided to rent a cotton candy machine, jumper, and shaved ice machine. I thought that it was actually pretty awesome that we were able to afford all that for Ryu. Thanks to the help of my grandparents, sister, and mother we were able to do it all. I was very pleased with how Ryu’s birthday turned out.

Our theme for his birthday was Pixars “UP”. I tried my best to try finding an outfit that almost resembled Russel’s outfit in the movie. Unfortunately, Ryu didn’t have short hair at the time nor could I find a costume or badges for his birthday outfit. I even tried finding him a backpack just cause Russell had one. This was the closest I got, haha. He had a hat too, but he kept taking it off, lol.

Again, thanks to Ninong Roland for taking pictures. I also wanted to compliment and thanks to Tita Melanie for baking Ryu’s awesome cake.

I loved Ryu’s birthday it was a huge turnout. I just wanted to say a very big thank you to my family and friends that helped us out. I really enjoyed setting everything up for Ryu even if it was a little bit hectic. It was a nice big birthday bash for Ryu’s 1st event. I’m hoping to do something like this when he’s a bit older. I’m hoping to do something like this when he’s 5 when he can actually tell me what he wants to do for his birthday party and invite his set of friends. Otherwise, next year we’re probably just going to take him to Disneyland.
