Hanley's 1st Haircut

Happy 4th of July

I like that my children are getting older so I can do lots of fun things with them. It was kind of challenging last year as well as the year before. So this year we went to Susanville to have a BBQ and watch the races. Sadly Caleb was not there, hopefully next year. We all dressed up to celebrate (not in public of course, we changed, only the kids could pull that off) They sure did look cute though didn't they? Hudson had an okay time at the races...he was ready for something new a ways in to it. He got his way by 'needing' to go potty 800 times. However when it came time for the fireworks he was in awe. And Susanville always does a great job. At the fairgrounds we got a spot on the ground next to the grandstands and the fireworks came down right over us. Loved it! 

Hanley didn't participate in the fireworks but she sure did look cute. 

Huddie's 3rd Birthday

Can you believe he's three? I sure can't!  In this past year his vocabulary his quadrupled. He has so much to say, think, and ask. He's learned to ride a bike, made some new friends, and helped with a million projects. His personality is helpful. The other day he told me, "Mom, the house is messy, I will clean up my toys." And he did. If I have any project going on with a 'bammer' (or there is one within his sight) he is right there to participate. He observes, listens, and does. He likes to be apart of all things, he loves going on errands and drives. He's working on following directions still but in this last year he has done a great job. I'm so lucky to be his mom. I hope his birthday was everything he could ever hope for as a three year old. So on that note, let me tell you about it.

We kicked off the birthday week with some yummy yogart.

Went on many bike rides which completely wore him out.

Goofed off.

Played all day at the waterslides which again, wore him out.

Had a birthday party with some really yummy cake.

Face and body painting too...

And of course lots of playing and hanging out.

Even got a new truck before I did!!!!

Happy Birthday to my precious, handsome, amzing three year old.
