1st Birthday Party!!

Leilani tunrs 1 on July the 5th but due to other events we decided that we would do her party a week early. It was an awesome afternoon. We had a great turn out of friends and family and we are so grateful to everyone that came and helped make it such a memorable day. We got everything started at about 3:30 and many of us hung around until about 8:30. It was a warm day but really cooled off and was an awesome evening.  The kids all played great together all day. We played some wiffle ball, a bit of football, and some extreme jump roping. It was a ton of fun to hang out with everyone and to play around. We were all burnt out at the end of the night. 
Leilani is so special and has brought so much happiness to us. We feel extremely blessed to have her in our lives. Everyday she seems to get more and more wonderful. Thank you to everyone that came to celebrate this event with her. We love you all very much and really appreciate your love and support. 

A princess that is ready to party!!!

1st Cake!!

She loved it when everyone sang to her. She got her foot in the cake while we were trying to get her to blow out the candle. If you look close you can see the foot full of frosting.

Thank you everyone. She got some very cute clothes, really fun toys, and great DVD. It was the perfect mixture of gifts. You guys rock!!

She was a happy girl all day. 

She's been sticking her tongue out a lot recently. I love it.

Some of the kids cooling off with water balloons. Ya spend a hour filling em all up and watch them go in about 5 seconds.

Leilani's First Beach Trip

Savannah turns two this month and so what better way to celebrate than to have a birthday party at the beach. What an awesome day this was. The whole family was able to make it out the beach for the first time in who knows how long. We could not remember the last time we all made it there. With Greg and Veronica moving to Hawaii it may be the last for a while. 

We really wanted to see how Leilani would like it. She did not like it. She loved it. She loved the sand. She loved the water. She was just in heaven. Her mom thought the water was too cold to go in but Leilani loved it. I soaked her feet in it and she wanted more. That is my little girl!!! She played in the sand for a long time. She tasted  a lot of it too. She has had 5 baths since she has got home and we are still finding sand in different crevices . We got there about 1 and stayed until about 9:30. She was a good sport the whole time.  The day had swimming, football, fish tacos, hot dogs, watermelon, cupcakes, and top it all off smores and great fire that burned nice and warm. Thank you everyone that went. It was a ton of fun. 

Mommy and Leilani chillin' in the sun.

Christian was showing us how to make sand castles.

Leilani was a little iffy about it all when we first got there. 

Makin' smores by the fire. 

This is how to eat a smore. 

This was Leilani's first time touching the ocean. 

Happy Birthday Savy!!

She just tuned 11 months. I love the hair.

I like watching the boys play together. 

Two cute little California Girls. 

She could not get enough of the sand. 

I loved this picture. It really was an awesome day.

Leilani helped burry Chase. He loves the sand more than any person that I have ever seen in my life.
