The 4th was great this year...breakfast & bike parade at the church (no camera), pool party/BBQ with friends (no camera), and BBQ #2 and fireworks with Bren, Megh, Barb, Ellie, Cam, & Connor. Fun, fun, and that's right, some more fun.
Grandma & Grandpa visit! Oh the fun we have when they come to visit. We had a great time with them. Lots of playing with the kiddos, shopping, eating, card playing, talking, and just enjoying each others' company.
Happy Birthday to ME! Did Don try to put 32 candles on the cake you may be asking yourself. Why no, he did not. He tried to spell ASH with candles. Looks more like 32 randomly placed candles, but I love that he tried. xoxo
10 months old! Seriously, where did the time go?! Jack is the best baby and I really might say that even if I weren't lucky enough to be his mama. He is all smiles and giggles and is just a joy to be with. He is crawling...finally...well, kind of. He goes for a bit on all fours then plops down to his tummy and goes full speed commando style. Hey, whatever works. He has two adorable, sharp teeth that he loves to give us "love bites" with. He is a puller of hair! He gives me big, slobbery raspberries on my face and neck all the time and I love it. He is not the world's best sleeper, but hey, nobody's perfect and he's so stinkin' cute, I almost don't care.
Jack's first trip to the beach! We had a great time in Seaside last weekend. Jack ate sand, dipped his toes in the ocean, and even got his first sunburn (despite our best efforts to keep sunscreen and a hat on our alabaster little man). Bri had a blast splashing in the ocean with her cousins, building sandcastles, and eating sticky, saltwater taffy. It was 75 degrees, which is super warm for the Oregon coast and it was a glorious day!
