Trey's 1 year photoshoot

A few days before Trey turned one I decided that I wanted to take pictures of him with his smash cake.
It also was an excuse for me to practice on his birthday cake.

Here is how they turned out:

Well we started out least I was able to capture the moment!

Trey's 1st Birthday

On July 3rd my sweet baby turned 1!
It was a Sunday, so we kept it kind of simple. I made a 4th of July breakfast, and we just played all morning before church.

That night we threw a small party for him. I wanted to do a cupcake theme so I made everyone cupcakes topped with mini cupcakes made out of fondant.

I had extra stuff so I made some mini cupcakes for the kids...very appropriate for the 4th of July!

Then Trey's smash cake was a giant cupcake. 
I had some issues with his cake but overall I think it all turned out so cute!

Singing "Happy Birthday"

Eating his cake

We then got all cleaned up and opened presents.

I can't believe my baby is one! 
Here is a little about my boy:
  • He is almost walking, only takes a few steps!
  • He is 70% for height and 25% for weight
  • He says Dada, Mama, Dog, Uh-oh and Wow
  • Trey is very busy, he constantly is exploring and searching for new things
  • He loves the swings and can sit in them all day
  • He is a great eater and especially loves blueberries and strawberries
  • Trey is such a boy already, when he has a toy he makes a growling noise like a lion
  • Trey loves water..any kind really, especially the toilet!

We love you to pieces Trey!

Eric's 30th Birthday

Eric is officially an old man, on July 1st he turned 30!
I wanted to do something special for his big birthday so I started talking to his friends and decided to plan a surprise party for him.

I whipped up an invite in photoshop and emailed it to all his buddies:

That same night we threw a bridal shower for my soon to be sister-in-law. It was held inside and Eric's party was outside. It was a bit stressful and chaotic, but it all came together in the end.

I decided to make Eric's cake and it was my first real attempt at a cake. 
I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out!

I forgot to take pictures of the inside of the cake. It was layers of blue and orange. 
Everything was on a color scheme. 

I made this banner:

and little tags that were glued onto the popcorn boxes and silverware:

I meant to have a beautiful table with it all set up nicely but it got windy and everything blew away. So I don't have pictures of it all put together.
But none of it mattered as long as Eric was happy.

We had a great turnout and after its all said and done, it was worth all the hassle.

Happy Birthday to my sweetheart, you will never get another party again :) haha!

Real Salt Lake

Recently we got the chance to go to a Real Salt Lake soccer game.
Eric got some tickets through a client of his, and let me tell you, they were good tickets! 

We entered in our own special entrance and got taken to our seats through the same tunnel the players come out in. We got comfy chairs with free drinks and popcorn. When we found our seats the most random thing happened. We got put directly next to our good friends Scott and Natalie!

It just so happened to be Natalie's Birthday, and it was so nice to celebrate with them.

Eric is a huge Real fan, he sported his Real hat complete with signatures from the whole team:

and he kept taking pictures of the players.
I don't know enough about the team to tell you who these players are:

While we were taking this picture we scored a goal!

After the game we got to go down to the field and take some pictures.

Such a fun night

Cedar hills days

I am sooo behind on my posting.
Things have been a bit crazy around here with Birthdays, wedding stuff, and the 4th of July.

Just about 2 weeks ago we had Cedar Hills Days.
This time of year is so fun!
Every weekend there are parades, carnivals and fireworks.

Enjoying the parade

At the carnival Tatum got his face painted like a Lion. 

He liked it for about a minute and then didn't want anyone to see him. 
When we got home he ran upstairs and started washing it off. 
That was $3 well spent!

Oh well, he was the cutest lion I have ever seen!
