Isaac celebrated his first birthday on June 20th! These are some pictures taken at a family birthday party for him. Well, we also celebrated my uncle's birthday, and Father's Day at the same time! Eden was a great big sister in "helping" Isaac open all of his presants! Besides the big family party, we had a little party for him on his actual birthday with just us, and then last Sunday we had another party with Rob's side of the family. It was a lot of fun, and I think Isaac has developed a new sweet tooth for cake! Do to the increase of tempature of late, we have been trying to find ways to cool ourselves down, and one thing we have purchased was this slip and slide for Eden. She went down it a few times, and then decided it was much more fun to just play in the hose of water coming out of it! She was filling up sand toys with the water and taking them over to her little brother and transfering the water to another sand toy by him so he could play with water too. She got her dad a few times as well! This is Isaac playing on the side of the slide, and before his sister brought water over to him. By the time she got done with that, he wasn't nearly so dry, but he didn't seem to mind!
We have been busy already this month! We went to a family fun day with my parent's stake, and Eden got to ride on a real pony! I thought she'd be a little nervous, but she wasn't at all! She enjoyed riding on the pony, and she now tells anybody she meets that she got to ride on a real pony! Last weekend we went to Deer Creek for a little fishing and playing on the beach. We caught a few fish, and Eden enjoyed playing on the beach, even though it was rocky instead of sandy! Isaac's first birthday is a week from today! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by, and that my little boy is going to be a year old already! Of course, I guess he should be that old since he's going to be a big brother in about two months!!
I am a wife and mother of six beautiful children! My oldest child and son passed away on August 28th, 2005 when he was 2 1/2 after a choking accident the day before. We miss him, but know he's in a better place and will always be looking out for his family! I am currently in school at USU online working towards my Family Life Studies degree and hope to one day be a marriage and family educator. Life is busy with five growing children to take care of, but we're having fun and learning as we go!
