Brady is 1!!!

Our baby is one. Can you believe it? I made him a turtle cake, because turtles seem to be a theme in his life- not as random as it may seem. He knew exactly what to do- we sat him down to take a picture, and he dug right in! This cake was from his 1st of 2 birthday parties this year.
I made these cupcakes on his actual birthday. They were awesome. Devil's Food, with a peanut butter/marshmallow center, chocolate frosting, and PB cups on top. Can you go wrong with that combo? Um, no.
He needed a litte assistance to get going...
but in the end, he had it all figured out!
After we cleaned him up, my sister Marilla took some awesome pictures of him for his birthday. This is just one of many adorable ones. Happy Birthday buddy!

What We've Been Up To Lately

This past weekend my family had a reunion in Preston, Idaho. It was so fun to see almost everyone (one brother and his family weren't able to be there, except for their only son) and catch up. We had a flag raising ceremony (each family was asked to bring a flag representing their family), kick-ball game, tons of food, games, etc. We took family pics, as well at a house that has great backgrounds. That's where we found this John Deere lawn mower. Farmer Brady?
He's getting tired, but I thought he has a great look on his face.

So fun...

There are many posts to come, but for now, that's all you get. We are moving to Idaho right now, so life gets a little crazy. We'll miss friends and family at home, but this will be so great for our family. Happy 24th of July! I'll update again...soon.
