So we had some birthday fun this weekend and since I’m headed south to see Sarah this morning…

and my brain is kind fueled with sugar and such…

here are some of the highlights.

We were honored to be included for dinner on Graham’s special day when he selected a local restaurant.

We were happy to join this party of six, and the other set of beaming grandparents at this Texas style steak house.

this one…www.laurareimer.net

got his fair share of sugar.

We did gifts, played with water and anything that could be thrown, kicked or caught…

ate watermelon…

and went out the sliding glass door at least a hundred thousand times.

We learned the fine art of setting off weird and disgusting fireworks…

cause that’s how we roll…

please note Caroline chugging the last of some envelope of baby goo…

We texted pictures to Zach and Tia and Uncle John.
