We were in Idaho this last week to celebrate my Dad's retirement. It was amazing to be part of such an incredible day and hear the great things that were shared by those individuals that worked closely with him.
We are proud of you Dad!! It was very appropriate to see you recognized for all of the amazing work you have done. We are excited for all of the fun adventures ahead now that you have a bit more time to relax, golf, fish, horseback ride, and do whatever else your heart desires. WE LOVE YOU DAD and GRANDPA!!!

We had a very Happy Birthday celebration yesterday for Sommey. I can't believe she is 3 already! First, Grandpa and Mimi took us all out for a Birthday dinner at Olive Garden.Next, we headed back to our house to open presents.......Sommey got lots of cute new clothes, new pink Puma's, money from Grandma's and Grandpa's, new picture for her room,and even got some princess Walkie Talkie's from Gpa and Mimi(she is holding one of them in the first picture).

We planned on ending the night with cake and ice cream, but we were all so full from dinner, that we ended it with just a little cake and a birthday song for Sommey Sue.

Sommey had been telling me for months that she wanted pink cupcakes for her Birthday, so I decided to make one GIANT cupCAKE for her BIG day.
