Birthday Blessings

I really had a such a wonderful birthday this year. I was not happy about turning 30 but my family and friends made it a great day. Caleb and I had a joint party on Sunday and it was great fun! My brothers and their wives surprised me with a wonderful and very caring gift. I can not express how grateful i am. They truly were an answer to prayers.

And now on with the show!

Happy Birthday Grumpy


Leland decided that his favorite place is the table. Much to the chagrin of the mothering types.


Emmy was cute as always.


Amanda and Papa reading to Leland. He is mesmerized by books.


This is how we play pool in our house.


Lala and Emmy show off their pearly whites.


Leland took some sweet shots of himself.


Beautiful Jayne


We then on a walk, it was a beautiful evening.

They live in such a wonderful place.

Dad and Levi got some father-son time in


And Caleb caught this trout with his bare hands! No lie!


Favorite game of the night? Chucking rocks in the lake.


Super Dad!!


When we got back Jonah was plum tuckered out.

Is that just the cutest thing ever? I'll answer for you. Yes. Here is a close up.


Thanks everyone, more than i can say.

Happy Birthday Kate. 30 not so bad. It's 40 that's kind of scary now.
