A day in the sun!

This pool was just perfect for Jace's first experience. Thank you Andrew for your thoughtful gift!
He was a bit afraid of the bigger pool, it took him a while to warm up to it... He never did like the dolphin spraying water in his face... maybe when he is older.

My boys mowing the lawn!

Road trip to Swan Valley

Check out Jace's face in this one. Ever since he turned one, he has developed quite the attitude. He mad-dogs people like crazy. It is a look of disgust almost. It cracks me up!

While Paula was visiting, her and Nate took a motorcycle ride to Swan Valley (Jace and I followed behind in the car). We stopped at the falls and then had a Sunday picnic dinner.

4th of July

I love the 4th of July around here. This city is so festive! And... thanks to good ol' Frank who likes to share his wealth, we have awesome fireworks. We had a blast with lots of family and friends. Jace actually stayed awake the entire time... quite amazing for him. Our new word for sparklers is "sprinklers". Not because Jace says it that way but because Nate says it that way! He came home on the day of the 4th and said "I bought sprinklers for tonight." and I said..."why on earth did you buy sprinklers?" and he of course meant to say sparklers but now we get to make fun of him for years to come!

Jace's first Birthday!

He is Mr. Cool at his "after party".

He was very hesitant to dig in and once he did, he was very proper and wanted to stay clean. Thats my little boy!
I wish I was one of those awesome mothers that can make a birthday cake into some really cool animal or theme... but that is just not one of my talents... so Jace got a regular ol' cake with a tractor on top.
Proud parents of our little one year old!

As you can see from the pictures, Jace was spoiled rotten for his Birthday! Thanks to everyone who love him so much. You might have noticed the green wand in his hand at all moments... it was a dollar store buy and of course it was his favorite.
