the party

the cake...

the girls...

the mess...

the family...

We had such a wonderful time celebrating Brenna's birthday today with my family. It was a perfect day full of cake, gifts, outdoor fun, and time with family. The kids are exhausted and so are mom and dad. :)

This past week we made a trip to Oklahoma to see my Grandparents and family. On the way down we stopped outside of Witchita and stayed with some of Nolan's family. This is Aunt Marci with Brenna and Brenna's second cousin David.

We had a great time with my Grandparents when we made it to Oklahoma. We saw lots of family and had a wonderful visit. Two of these pictures were taken on a night we went to a park and Blake got to ride a train and a merry-go-round. He's still talking about that train ride!

Lots of time spent outside. Lots of bubbles popped!

At the park, waiting for the train to arrive. Thanks for the great trip Grandma and Grandpa, it was so great to see you and we love you.

On our way back from Oklahoma, we went to a family reunion on Nolan's side of the family. Pictures to come!!
