Matthew Dodd, son of Brad and Tanya, celebrated his first birthday on Sunday at the Tira Community Center. The theme of his party was “My 1st Birthday,” with lots of party hats and balloons, and even a piñata! Matthew had his own birthday cake in the shape of a party hat, which Joyce, his “Nana,” says he thoroughly destroyed! Over 30 guests helped the birthday boy celebrate and were treated to birthday cake. Everyone had a good time.
