all the rest of the celebrating ..

Im sure you may be tired of seeing pictures from Rivers birthday.. but I have just a few more to post from all the other things we did as a family. They are all random. And not all from the party.

I promise there are other things going on in our life.. like Freeland just got back from a trip to The Masters, he also just started a new rotation yesterday, the weather was nice enough this weekend that we were all outside again, & Ive been going to the Y everyday & loving it.. and the tumkin continues to grow.  So I promise to share all that with you as well.

But until then. Here are other memories we have from River turning 1:

Corinne was nice enough to email me pictures of River opening gifts at his party with all THREE of us in them. Im thankful to have these:

the party hat was followed by a ma-jor dance party

and then we also went out and celebrated one last time by letting all his balloons go. We actually did it twice because it started raining.. but it was fun & River was laughing the whole time. Im hoping this becomes a tradition

phew. I think that wraps up all the celebrations. Well, the pictures at least! It really was a blast getting to celebrate all together.

Thank you all for your sweet comments about the birthday party. We had fun putting it together! Im thankful it all worked out and we were able to celebrate with our friends.

  1. About the maternity dress thing...check the Loft by Ann Taylor (it is their "outlet" website)...I was 7 mo preggers last summer w/ weddings and found great flattering dresses that were super comfy.
