River & Eli's Birthday in Texas

Since we were in Texas the week before River's birthday we took advantage and celebrated with family! Such a treat to be able to do that. Hopefully one day he realizes the blessing it is to have family around to celebrate your life!

Eli, River's cousin, turned 1 in April also and since we werent going to be there on his birthday we took advantage and celebrated him too! :)

We just kept it low key and grilled out and did cake. No gifts (although you can never stop Nana & Denise from bringing gifts! ;) it was definitely a fun afternoon and Im thankful we were all able to be together with so many the grandparents, aunts, cousins, and great grandparents! We were just missing a handful of people...

Thanks for celebrating our kids life family! I didnt realize that I actually just took pictures of the kids and didnt get much of the family that was actually there. I'll have to work to get more pictures next time! But Im thankful our family drops everything when we come in town to get all the time with us that they can and to love on all the kids! Its a huge blessing
