Happy Birthday to ME !!!

Last year of my 20's

We all got together for my B-day and went to Iron Chef.

It was such a fun time
and a yummy dinner

I was so happy to have my family share this special day with me.

This was a great Birthday
Surrounded by all the people I love.

Next year is the

Cup cakes


My favorite cake is Rainbow chip.
Since it was my Birthday I decided to make some cupcakes.
Riley was very excited about it when I told him
He kept running around saying
It was so cute. I don't know if he even knew what it was.
But when we started he had a blast.
He was such a good helper.

He loved being mommy's helper
He had so much fun and had a smile on his face the whole time.

Finger Painting

Finger Paint

Riley went to his Auntie and Uncles house and they surprised him with a new experience.
Riley had his first experience with finger painting and at first he did not know what to think he began to LOVE it and have fun.
Since he had a good time.......
I just had to go buy him paper and paint
so that we could paint more at home.
We had a lot of fun making hand prints togehter and getting messy.

Check out the finished pieces of ART.

So cute

Maybe someday he will be a famous Painter. ....

Northwest Trek

A Fun day Out

We had a family day outing at Northwest Trek
Riley had so much fun walking around looking at the animals
and then riding the tram.

He had fun riding on Daddy's shoulder

Looking at the bears with Mommy

We saw more animals on the tram ride.
Riley was really good at finding the animals
and even spotted some before we saw them.

His favorite was the huge Bison.

We had a great day spending time together as a Family

He had so much fun playing with her.
He was such a flirt.

Riley was a dancing fool and the HIT of the party.
The DJ asked if he could take him to all his events.
He was so funny.
He had so many moves and when Boom Boom pow came on
he went crazy.
It is his favorite song.

Here he is break dancing.
Everyone was laughing so hard.

He had a great time eating cake and even enjoyed sucking on a lemon.
