Birthday Preview

You may not know that June is BIRTH-MONTH for our favorite little buddy CASH!  I seriously can not believe that this little man is going to be ONE!  He even received his first birthday gift today- thanks Laughlins!  We love you guys!  

EVERYONE is excited to open the gift

He loves all of his new clothes and jommies!

He doesn't know that these are to wear, not chew on.

Since we will be at Crooked Creek Ranch for his birthday, what would be more fitting than a Cowboy Party?  Here are a few little previews.  I'll try to post pics after the actual party!

The invitations

The cupcake toppers

Loot (goodie) bags and badges


My favorite piece- the pennant banner

We'll let ya'll know what kind of wild west shenanigans we pull for this little cowpokes big day!

Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine

I have 3 full days to have my entire life in order.  Ok, so maybe that's kind of drastic, but as you may remember, we are preparing to embark on our Colorado adventure!  Being gone for an entire month is SO wonderful, but requires extensive preparation . . . multiplied by 5.  As you can see, our girls are ready for Crooked Creek.

Since I should be making lists and packing right now, I will simply give you a photo montage of our summer adventures thus far.  There is so much more to come!

We went to Memphis for Rachael's wedding (where I didn't take a single pic- ugh!).  The kiddos had TONS of fun in Nan's freezing pool and playing with their cousins.  We've got 6 kiddos all age 4 or younger in that pic- whoa.

We also had a visit from our dear friends the Grigors.  They made the trek to Manhattan with Baby Gracie and we had such a fun weekend!  Grace decided to help me wake Cash from his nap- I like the one where Grace is touching Cash's bum!  We also took the Grigors to our splash park and the tots enjoyed mere seconds of the freezing water.

This past weekend, I took a scenic drive to Wichita to visit my college friend Nelly and pick up another college friend Ashley from the airport.  What a glorious reunion!  But seriously, isn't Kansas prettier than you expected?!

Keeper of the Plains- ask Kristin Neely for a full explanation.

Harper likes to hang out in Best Buy and watch a 3D movie.  Am I a good mom, or what?

When it's not raining, we have spent some quality time at the park.  Cash LOVES the swings!

These girls LOVE to show off their dance moves.  They may not be too coordinated (ahem, Reese), but they sure do look cute trying!

Oh my.  Are words necessary?  LOVE this little guy.
