Break N Bread
Here's one more picture from Jackson's first birthday - the hat stayed on for all of 5 seconds. If you can tell, Wes is holding his hands down for this picture, lol.
We spent this afternoon downtown in Pepper Place at Break 'N Bread, which had a group of local restaurants offering tastings of their food. This is a Birmingham Originals fundraiser held every year. The plan was for us to go to early church, let Jackson play in the nursery, come home for his nap, then head downtown. Well, all went as planned except for the nap part. Jackson just rolled around and played in his crib for almost 1 1/2 hours, but he was happy, so we left him up there. Then we got him up and headed downtown. Jackson did really well for not having his nap, and the food was great! Each restaurant had a tent set up with plates of their yummy food at the front . Some of our favorites were: Bright Star's seafood gumbo, Cafe Iz's brisket and polenta (which Jackson loved the polenta, who knew?), and Hot and Hot's shrimp and grits. We let Jackson roam around in the street where it was not that crowded and he had a lot of fun. They also had cooking demos, bands, and belly dancers (one of which should NOT have been out there). Here Jackson was dancing in the street :)
We can't wait to go back next year! The only disappointing thing for me was all the wines and beers that were there to taste that I couldn't have! Oh well, there's always next year, right...
