More birthday pict!

Brig turns 1

So Saturday was Brigham 1st birthday. First we met up with Nathan's friend Tanner and his family at the temple, we hadn't seen him in about 10 years, then we went to phx for a get together with my family at a park there. We had a picnic and the kids played on the playground then we went over and rode the kiddie train. They had lots of fun with their counsins, it is so fun to see them all together. I got stung by a bee which wasn't very fun. That evening we checked into our hotel and thought we would go swimming but the water was a little cold so we stayed in the warm pool a little while. Later we met up with Garen and Risa, Nathan's high school buddy and went to Mary Coyles ice cream shop. I grew up going there and it sure was as yummy as I remember. Emma had a jolly green giant and Brenna and Jack had hot fudge sundays. Brig had some birthday bites of the sunday. Now onto Brig. I can't believe he is already 1, this year has flown by. He is such a joy in our lives and we are so glad he is here and makes us smile everyday, although we are not sure when he will walk, he takes a few steps and then starts crawling. Last night my parents, Nathan's dad and Jackie and Nathan's sister Emily and Jordan came over for cake, poor Brig he was so tired but seem to settle in when he got some cake. Of course the kids opened his presents for him, he didn't seem to mind. All in all it was a good birthday weekend. We love him too pieces!

So why do I need to make new years resolutions? Well that is the only time I will acually do something that I have been neglecting. I always do well for a few weeks and then it's over. I really need to stick with it this year. Exercising that is always on my list and I acually did it this morning, we will see how that goes. Keeping a organized home, a little hard with 4 kids. There are a few more, hopefully this year I will stay focused and keep on track.
