Birthday party


Friday Ashton turned 3. Can you even believe it? Crazy! Anyway, we had a small school party and then a dinosaur party at our house on Saturday. Thank goodness we had good weather! It was so much fun and all the kids played SO hard!
We had a bounce around, a snow cone machine, did a "dinosaur dig", and also had a couple of dinosaur pinates.
So what do you all think of this dinosaur cake? Not quite what I was expecting! It reminds me more of the bleeding armadillo cake on Steel Magnolias!!
Oh don't mind how dark I am! Just had a spray tan. It only looks THAT dark right after I get sprayed. hahaha

Ashton and Maggie Rae on the bouncy


How about this awesome T-Rex watermelon? I would love to take credit for carving it but you all know that I couldn't do that! Thanks Miss Lara!

The best part of the party was when the kids were all eating their cake and Russ asked if Ashton is supposed to eat the candles? I totally freaked out and made him spit it all out and then cleaned off his tongue. Turns out that Maggie Rae gave him the candles to lick the icing of off and poor Ash got a little confused and just took a huge bite out of it! Too funny!!

I love this picture of Aiden! I have a very similar picture from last year but he didn't have any hair due to his chemotherapy. How things change in a year!!

This last picture is all the kids having their dinosaur dig

Wonderful wedding weekend

This weekend one of Russ' twin brothers got married to his junior high sweetheart. They have dated since they were 14 years old! Isn't that amazing!! The wedding was at Russ' parents house. It really couldn't have been a nicer weekend. Russ' aunt came over from England and his brother Tim was also in town. We had so much fun hanging out with him. He has to be one of the funniest people I have ever met and he and Russ together are hilarious!

My wonderful father-in-law and mother-in-law

My brother-in-law, Tristan (the other twin) and his beautiful wife, Amber

Brooke and her dad

The happy couple!

Jon and Brooke had been taking dance lessons. I have to admit, I laughed at first because Jon is really shy and I couldn't imagine him dancing in front of people. Let me just tell you, I haven't ever seen anything so sweet. It was amazing! I don't think there was a dry eye!

Here is the best father-in-law in the world! I love this man!!!

My sister-in-law Amber and my nephew Aiden. Can you all tell how healthy he is! You would never know that little boy is in remission for leukemia!
