Happy Birthday KD!

31 years ago (yes 31) Kara Dawn was born. What a great day that was, well I don't know that for sure cuz I wasn't born yet. It was actually 6 1/2 yrs after that I was born! Hee Hee. But put the age difference aside and what we have is an amazing friendship. K you have been there for me the past 2 yrs when I needed you so much. You make me laugh with all your quirky obsessions and cleaning hang-ups. I love ya and look forward to many more years of friendship. Hey in 6 1/2 yrs you can post about my 31st birthday!

We took this week to spend some time hanging out with the family and friends. We didn't do alot but that was the best part. Here is G sitting outside the camper ready for the fun to begin...

And this lovely pic Graydon snapped.

G ready to go hit the trails. He doesn't look thrilled but he actually really liked it.

Just a few of the deer we saw while riding around.

This was the visitor we had. G named him raccoon (go figure).

Ty and G spying on "Raccoon"

We were also joined by the Skubals. Here G and Otis are ready to be chauffeured around.

Me and fave girl EJ. I love this little girl and as you can tell she is fond of her Auntie Brandy too.

Trick Rider

Ok REALLY?! Have you seen anything cuter? This is G in his riding gear his Nena and Papa bought him. He wants to be just like his Daddy and James (Clint) and ride dirtbikes. Here he is on his Fischer Price bike which he calls his motorcycle. He learned to stand up on the bike and we taught him how to hold one hand up and say "Wahoo". Pretty sure I am going to regret that when he gets his real dirtbike!!!

Smore Fun

While my parents were in town for Father's Day (yes I know that was last month) we bought a firepit and decided to make some smores. This was a very monumental day in G's life, having his very first smore, so I had to take pics. YUMMY

Graydon and Dathan

So I am a little late but here are some pics of G and his buddy Dathan at Dathan's 2nd birthday. Dathan was G's second friend to ever have being born just 4mths after him. Aren't they just adorable....


Yes I said THREE! These next pics just melt my heart. Ty reading to Graydon and Graydon reading to Manny. AWWWW.
