Happy 7th Birthday, Cole! -July 2016

My scuba birthday boy. 
He sure loves the water, so what better way to celebrate than at our neighborhood pool with friends?

 Here is our attempt at a homemade chocolate light saber on a store bought cake:
I love my happy and funny and energetic kid.
Opening presents (with Eeyore, of course):

Feed the inquisitiveness:

Cutie sister:

Legos are the best (unless they are on the floor):

He'd wanted a Magic 8 Ball for a while. My favorite is when he didn't like an answer I gave, he'd ask the Magic 8 Ball, AS IF that would trump Mom. Wrong-o.

I bought Cole a poop emoji cup because I knew it would make him laugh. Sure enough:

In the few days that followed, the big seven year old lost a tooth.

Gavin Turns ONE! -July 2016

Gavin actually turned one year old while we were in Utah, but I think his birthday warrants its own post. He shares a birthday with his cousin Grace, so we celebrated both kids with the McBrides.
What a beautiful grocery store whoopee pie Oreo cake. I was a little jealous.

 He was a little unsure since he had such a large audience with the McBrides, but he eventually got the gist of it.
Grandma Lori brought some presents by for Gavs when we got back to Texas:

Happy birthday, sweet boy.

Family Pictures July 2016

These aren't all of them, but you get the general idea. This is the second year we've gone to Camera Shy while we were on our Utah trip for pictures. They do a good job for a good price. I liked the light colors outside and was pleased overall. It's better than I could do!
