Finn's 1st Birthday

Brace yourselves for an overload of photos.

On July 23rd, my tiny little ball of cute turned a whopping 365 days old.
My baby is now a toddler.

We celebrated that day with ice cream cups, because what do toddlers love more than ice cream?
Nothing, that's what.

(By the way, I'm currently on a black and white photo kick. I love how it takes out distractions and focuses on emotions. More on that later.)

Everyone enjoyed their sugary goodness.

Even Denny.
No, he isn't filled with rage.
That is just his face.
You get used to it.

I think Finn enjoyed his most of all.

Jump forward a few weeks.
EVERYONE came to visit.
Grandma Taly, Papa & Betty, and Abuelos.
We waited for them all to arrive before having his party.

Where did we have Finn's party?
The splash pad. of course.
He LOVES the splash pad.

The adults sat around like potatoes and gossiped.

Pinata Time!

Hunting for the perfect pinata tree.
We picked the wrong one apparently.
The children got attacked by fire ants.

Found the right tree!
Ready, set, go!

Mother's Day 2014

I've been rather busy this past month, and never got the chance to put these pictures up.

I had a wonderful Mother's Day.
We shared lots of love, laughs, and happy moments.

My brother and his family joined us for an afternoon at the park.
 Enjoy the random assortment of pictures.
