Beach Family Reunion Photos

We just got back from the most wonderful trip to Florida! We had a family reunion in Panama City Beach. All of my aunts, uncles and cousins (minus Ryan), my grandma and her husband, Howard, and my great uncle and aunt were there. I hadn't seen some of the people in 8 or more years. While we were there, we took these family pictures on the beach. I love them!!

Tate (3 and 3/4 years old)

I took these pictures of Taters the same day as Corey's one year shoot, but I never posted them. Tate has so much personality and he cracks me up everyday. He can be the sweetest, most tender and fun little person. He can also be wild, crazy and a little out of control. Tate loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Wonder Pets, getting ready for preschool, golf, playing with his kitchen, swimming, his rag and blanket, all his stuffed animals (Snowy, Dr. Beaks, Captain Jumpsalot, Blue and Blue's friend), and he loves his family most of all. He is such a daddy's boy and has to do everything his daddy does. He is very friendly and loves to tell everyone that his name is Tate and he is three years old. I love this kid so much!! (And, he was totally hamming it up for these pictures! He was being so crazy, I told him he could choose where he wanted his pictures taken. He chose by this pile of wood- lovely.)

Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A

Friday was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A. So, of course we dressed up like cows to get our free meals. The boys had a lot of fun and looked so cute!!

Corey's One Year Stats

Corey had his one year doctor appointment today. Here are the stats:

Height: 2 ft 7 in (85 percentile)
Weight: 26 lbs 13 oz (93 percentile)
Head: 49 cm (98 percentile)

It is official: he is a big boy.

Fourth of July

We had a great Fourth yesterday. We had fun hanging around the house during the day and then we watched fireworks at my mom's house. Corey just stared at the fireworks and Tate went crazy. He was yelling, "Balls! Balls! Balls for everyone! Balls for each of us!" I guess he thought the fireworks looked like exploding balls? :)

This video isn't great, but you get the point.

Corey's First Birthday

Corey had a great first birthday. We spent the day with my mom at the park in Spanish Fork that has a little splash pad for kids. They loved it!Then, we came home and had a little party with just our little family. Katie had helped me make some decorations for the cake and they turned out pretty cute.

Corey loved his cake! He dug into it and ate it for quite awhile. When he was done, he had cake in his hair, up his nose and in his ears. He didn't love that too much!Tate had fun helping his brother eat the cake too! :)

Then, we opened presents. We didn't get Corey that much (I learned from Tate that a one year old doesn't need a lot). We got him a little wooden piano, which he loved. My grandmas sent him some money for his birthday, so we bought some toys for the beach and books. He loved it all. Corey also got a playhouse from his Grandma that he (and Tate) love! It was a great birthday!
