Best Weekend Ever

Last weekend was amazing. Bryson and I have been so busy with the new house but the projects are finally slowing down. We've got the inside finished (besides painting the bathrooms and a room), the lawn in, the sandbox built, the garden planted, flowers planted, dog kennel, now we just need to build the fence. We decided we needed to take a break last weekend. I took a half day on Friday for Mason's graduation. After graduation we all went to Cheesecake Factory and it was yummy. Then on Saturday we got a babysitter for the whole day. It was sad to be away from Kaleb but I had taken two days off during the week so atleast I'd got a few one on one days with my little guy. It was Bryson's work Lagoon day so we started at Lagoon. It was a lot of fun to just spend the day with my hubby and niether of us had been to Lagoon in a while so it was pretty fun.

We then went to the Real Game where David Archuletta performed!!! It was the dedicatory game so they had para-troopers drop in with the game ball and American flag then the plane did a fly over right over the stadium. It was awesome. The game was good although it ended in a tie. Bryson pampered me and kept going and getting me hot chocolate and cookies because it was freezing! It was one of the best days involving just Bryson and I.

Thanks babe for everything! Best mothers day weekend ever! I love you

Kaleb's First Birthday!!

My baby boy turned ONE on June 2nd! It is so weird to see him walking and throwing fits. It seems like yesterday he would sleep all day and only wake up to eat. It is hard to see him get more and more independent and not need mommy and daddy as much.

For his birthday we decided to do a big Luau party for him and all his cousins. We got a big bouncer blowup water slide, slip-n-slide, and a little pool for the kids to play with.

He got lots of cool presents and especially loved his cake. His birthday party was the Saturday before his birthday so for his actual birthday I was able to take work off and he got his pictures taken by Jami, who is my cousin and an amazing photographer. From what I was able to see they turned out amazing and I can't wait to see the rest!

After pictures we went to the zoo. All my nieces and nephews on my side were able to come and it was a lot of fun. I forgot my camera so I wasn't able to take any pictures of him or the animals :( but all in all I think Kaleb really had a great birthday.

As Bryson and I look back over the past year we decided it has been quite a roller coaster. Becoming a parent was a lot harder and a lot more rewarding than we ever imagined! We can't wait to see what comes next!
