Family Time

Sam took our family to the Dallas Arboretum a few weeks ago. It was so fun to see all the flowers in bloom, along with all the fifteen year olds in their quinceanera garb. James was loving the grass. The grass in Dallas is pretty much just green weeds all mowed to look like grass, but the arboretum had genuine Kentucky blue.

James turned one. I can't believe it. He is such a joy and everyday we are so grateful he is apart of our family.  We had a low key birthday celebration for our boy. We decided to go with kid classics for our menu: homemade mini corns dog and mac and cheese. I think we enjoyed more than James. 

Sam finished school last summer but commencement is only held in the spring, so we decided to surprise everyone and go to Utah. It was so fun to visit with family. I always get emotional at graduations, and it was special to see my love walk the stage. 

Brian and MJ came out from New York the same weekend so my entire family was together. We got some family photo which if you click here you can see on Mary-Jane blog. 

James got a second birthday party at the Powells and we had so much fun playing with his cousins. Sadly I was slacking on the picture taking, but I got a few from our trip to the Tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point. 

Can't wait until our next visit home!
