Family Pictures!

Thanks to Audrey for taking these wonderful family pictures of us! Here is a sampling of a few of my favorites! I'm trying to decide which ones to blow up and frame, so I would definitely appreciate any feedback!

The Boys:

I just think this one is so sweet, and shows how Jack feels about his big brother!


We had a ton of him, but it would take too long to upload them all to this post, so here are a few I liked

Jackie boys 1st Birthday!!!

Time flies when you're having fun, and that has certainly been true for this past year with Jack! I can't believe my baby boy is already 1! He has been such a joy in our home; almost always smiling and happy! He already walks like a champ and climbs all over everything! He is busy busy, and it is really fun to watch his own personality come out more and more each day!

Opening presents on his birthday at home! Jack had fun ripping the paper off and was given a lot of help from his big brother!

Jack's Birthday Party!

We had Jack's party at my parents, since it's much bigger and nicer than ours! Here is Jack opening some presents!

Jack truly was a "gift" to us (cheesy, I know)!

Hitting the pinata!

Ethan having a go!

Jack's very own birthday cake!

Jack had a great time playing in his cake, but absolutely no interest in eating it. When we put a little in his mouth he got mad at us. He opted to eat a slice of tomato instead (I'm not joking, he saw some on the counter, and reached for it, so we gave it to him and he ate it all)! He is such a goof ball, but hopefully this was a sign that he will be a healthy kid and not want treats too much! We love our little man and are so glad he had a great first birthday! Thanks to all who helped to make it special for him in some way!

Happy Birthday USA!

We had a great 4th of July swimming at Grandma and Grandpa's, playing a bean bag toss, having a BBQ, a treasure hunt, and watching fireworks!
