Gavin Turns One!

Our dear friends Brooke and Steve celebrated the first birthday for their first born, Gavin, on March 5th. They hosted a small get together with lots of their family and a few friends the next weekend at their home. Brooke made the cakes and they were delicious!! We were lucky to share Gavin's first birthday party with the Long family and what a great afternoon it was! Gavin sure racked up in the toys and clothes departments!! He is such a precious little boy with a fantastic personality and who loves to dance!! Here are a few pictures from the party.

Birthday Traditions

Mr. Man's 1st birthday is just around the corner!! YIKES! I do not feel ready for a 1 year old, but anyway, that is beside the point. I am looking to start a annual birthday tradition, but I am not sure which idea I want to implement.

Have you heard of a good one? Do you have an idea you use yourself?

I would love to hear some of your ideas!!

A Spring Afternoon

Last weekend was the first gorgeous Spring afternoon. Brody has always loved being outside and last Saturday he was able to spend lots of time out doors, well in the backyard to be a little more specific. He enjoyed walking around and throwing Rocky's red ball. I am really glad that the weather is finally getting nice enough to be able to spend time outside. Just wish these temps would last forever!

We also spent some of the day with my mom, sister and grandpa.

Bounce House FUN!

A couple weekends ago we spent the better part of a day in Arlington to celebrate our niece (and Brody's cousin), Bella's 4th birthday. At her party, there was something there that Brody has not seen or experienced...A BOUNCE HOUSE! When all the (big) kiddos were inside, we snuck out to put Brody in the house so he could enjoy it with out getting trampled. He LOVED it. He mostly crawled around and wasn't quite sure what to do, but at one point he was trying to make it bounce with his hands! Too cute.

This is what happens when an (almost) one year old gets locked in a utility room while mommy is putting in the laundry. And these pictures were after I had already picked up the massive amount of hangers about 4 times! The Gatorade bottles were and added bonus this time. This is the instance where you just have to laugh!

I could not ask for a more precious son! I would have cleaned up the hangers 400 times if I needed to. I love you baby!
