2 Days, 2 Parks, 2 Much fun

Kipp had a few days off of work last week and we had great family time. We went to Disneyland one day and then Kipp and Tanner had a Daddy Date at Sea World.

This is the other dwarf, Cutie Pie!

Tanner, with his Mickey jacket on, was a little scared of the big mouse. We are just getting warmed up for next week when we get to do Disney with our Tompkins, Wooldridges, and Templetons friends! We can't wait.

Happy Easter

Hoppy Easter everyone! This is Tanner's first time visiting the Easter Bunny! He did great! He just ate his little plastic egg and didn't even notice that a huge furry bunny was holding him.

Look at all of those eggs. I will be honest, Kipp and I put most of them in his basket ourselves. He will get better over the years!

Tanner who is walking all over the place, just found his tongue this week. He was sticking it out and licking his lips all day.

Happy Easter!
Happy Spring!
May your basket overflow with love and eggs!!!

Surf's Up Dudes!!

There is nothing like Trail 1 on a good, and this was nothing like trail 1 on a good day! Daddy took Tanner out to catch some waves. This was Tan's first time on a board that was in the water. He did great for a while, then a big wave came and scared him a little bit. What great surfer hasn't been scared a time or two?

We played in the sand with some new sand toys. He is also wearing a new rash guard and board shorts, thanks G & G Lyons!

The key to sun protection is to bring 2 hats. When he starts to play he forgets one is on for a while, then bang, GET THIS OFF ME! So then I stick a new one on.

A birthday gift from Kipp and I was this cool beach tent. Tanner loves to crawl in and out of it.

Our Baby is 1!!!

Our little man is 1 year old. I can't believe it. This last week Kipp and I have talked about our life before Tanner came into turn it upside down. Hands down this last year has been the best of our lives! Being parents to this little guy is such an amazing gift. With that being said I wanted to make his first birthday super special!

His party had a St. Patrick's Day theme and all of his friends wore green. I made the shamrock cake and the green cupcakes.

Tanner and all of his little friends. His best friend Landon and Landon's sister Halle, cousins India and Jafta, Haley and Lexi, and my friend Elise's boys Ben and Caden.

Not pictured above Tanner's girl, Emily Johnson. They go to the same babysitter and get to have a play-date once or twice a week with Linda. Hats of to Emily. He took his hat off and tried to share it with Em. That was after he tried to step on her. Emily was wearing a one-z that Tanner wore last St. Patrick's Day! What a difference a year makes.

What a proud momma and poppa! We had a great day and that party was so much fun! We'll have to do it again next year.

One week until St. Patrick's Day! Happy March!!
We are so lucky, so we are told
To have a son more precious than GOLD!!
