The Big 90th Birthday Bash!!

I have lots of photos from California but the big 90th birthday party is a good place to start! My grandparents both turn 90 this year - my grandma on the 14th of August and my grandpa on the 5th of September. My aunt had a big party to celebrate both while we were there and it was so fun!
We took pictures, ate lots of good food, played games, had a fun question & answer session with the happy couple and then enjoyed a beautiful blessing given to all his posterity from my grandpa.
Here they are!

Here is a picture of the whole group... My grandparents, their 2 children - my dad and aunt - all 7 grandchildren and all 9 great grandchildren.

My cute little family.
All the grandkids

And all the great grandkiddies.
Plenty more pictures to come including more from the party, lizard hunting, and pictures with cousins!

Florida Grand Slam

A Florida Grand Slam consists of a buck, a boar, a turkey and a gator.
Check, check, check and finally.... check!
Daniel finally got his gator and it's a good one! 11 1/2 feet!

It's almost 9:00 am right now and I'm on my way to a celebratory (for me) breakfast at Mimi's Cafe with some of the moms in the ward who have just dropped their kids off for the first day of school. Jack is cooing in the back seat and I'm just giddy thinking that I'm not at school myself. That I'm finally doing what I've always wanted to do... be a mom. Life is good.

We just got back from a wonderful visit with my family in California.
Before I post the plethora of pictures from our trip, I thought I'd throw in some of my favorites of Jack from the last couple months!
This is our latest family picture.
This was taken the day Jack turned 5 months!
I call it his "big boy" outfit because he's wearing just a tee - not a onesie!
Here Jack is keeping me company while I'm doing laundry.
Sadly, Jack is quickly growing out of his gym.
Just hanging out on the couch!

I've been wanting to post this video for awhile but just haven't. We've been giving Jack "real" food for about a month now - he loves it and eats it like a champ. But this was his first feeding and I though it was so cute. I have another clip of him rolling over when he was first doing it but he does it so quickly and so often now I feel like the clip is outdated. I'll try and get some of his more recent tricks and post them quickly
