Graham's 4th birthday

We had the best time celebrating Graham on his 4th birthday.  It fell on a Saturday this year which was extra special because we got to all spend the entire day together!
 
We woke him up with singing and balloons.


And surprised him with a new bike.  They've been sharing Sawyer's for the past couple months so he was thrilled to get his own.




We had his party that morning at the skating rink.  It was funny he wanted to have it there because he doesn't skate.  Never even tried it.  Ha.  But they have inflatables and an arcade and he loves both of those!  He had a blast!  And so did we!









He saw a picture of a race car cake and picked out the one he wanted me to make him.  I think it turned out so cute!  He was so excited when he saw it which made me so happy!!




















I wish I would have gotten more pictures of Graham's friends at the party and the other guests.  Parties are also so crazy that I never remember to snap those pictures.  But we are so thankful for everyone who came out to celebrate our favorite 4 year old. 
 
We spent the rest of the afternoon playing and riding bikes.  Then ended the evening with swimming and pizza with family.  It was a great day!
 
Graham, happy birthday buddy.  We love you more than you will ever know and thank God for the privilege of parenting you!  You are incredibly special!

back to school

The boys started back to school last week.  They were both so so excited which took the sting out of it just a little.  I just can't believe the summer is over.  And I really can't believe it's already time for Sawyer to start KINDERGARTEN!  But we had the best summer!  This is the first season of me not working and being with the kiddos full time and I loved it so much!  I don't know exactly what the future holds so I am soaking up every second of being with these kiddos!
 
 
Sawyer had the best day!  He was so excited.  He hopped right out of the car and had the biggest smile when I picked him up.  He's riding the bus this week, but thankfully wanted us to take him on the first day!
 
Graham had a great day too.  He is going to 3k on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9-1.  He's super pumped to be a carpooler this year! 

Sawyer wants to be a race car driver, baseball player and scientist when he grows up.
Graham wants to be a fireman, police officer and daddy.
 
 
 
There goes a piece of my heart....
 
Reunited and it felt so good! ;)
 
He started riding the bus his second day and he's loving it!



 

Group shot of the elementary neighborhood kids.  We got together a few days before school started to take a picture for the year book, popsicles and to pray over our kids and the upcoming school year.



All the kids minus Graham who had just stepped in an ant bed! ;(  But luckily he was wearing pants so he only got like 2 bites.  He's into dressing himself and most days that means pants even though it 1000 degrees! ;)
