What a wonderful 1st B-day weekend!!!

This past weekend was one filled with family, friends, and FUN!!! On Saturday afternoon, Cousin Sara and Joe, Aunt Mary, Grandma, cousin Josh, and cousin Zoe arrived into town from Marinette/Menomonee, MI. After we got Grandma settled in at my house, we went over to my mom and dad's for a BBQ. Molly and Ned had flown in Thursday night from Fort Worth, TX, so they were there to join in too!! After a few games of ladder gold and cribbage, we enjoyed a wonderful shish kabob dinner. I forget how yummy they are since we really don't have them that often, I'll have to make them more!!

Sunday morning consisted of getting all the food ready for Bryekin's party. My grandma did a wonderful job of making all the side dishes and getting everything ready!! Grandma Dee brought a pasta salad and Grandma Sherry made some taco dips.
Grandma Sherry and Molly also picked up some balloons which were a great addition to the other decorations!!

Around 2 p.m. the garage starting filling up and the party began!!! Chit chatting, cribbage playing, and ladder golf seemed to be the big hits.

Bryekin had a wonderful lunch before he dug into his cake.

After cake and a bath for Bryekin, it was time to open gifts!! Bryekin received many wonderful gifts including of course his swing set and swing, a new Kawasaki ATV, a cozy coupe police car, a bowling set, golf clubs, books and adorable outfits!! He is such a lucky boy!!!

Bryekin was such a good boy all day long. He made his rounds amongst all the attendees and also showed off his new toys. He made it until about 630-7 p.m. before he cuddled with Aunt Molly for a nap.

Brent and the guys started a bonfire at dusk and even after everyone left, Brent and I hung out for a few hours around the fire. What a wonderful way to end the evening!!
