Birthday Fun!

We just wrapped up a super fun birthday weekend for Evan. Although his birthday was on the 17th, we planned the party for this past weekend to accommodate everyone's schedule. As it turned out, it was a good thing we did that since he was sick on his birthday :( He started coming down with a stomach virus on the 16th and by the weekend, he as still recovering. Then, he kindly gave the virus to me and Patrick! We were wiped out. Luckily we were all better by this weekend.

We started the weekend by attending a birthday party for my friend Jackie's kids. They were turning 7 and celebrated with a great pool party. Evan loves the water!

Now, on to Evan's party. He had a farm/John Deere theme since this is probably the only year he won't have an opinion about it, so I got to choose.

Evan's aunt Helene made the cake and did a fabulous job (as usual). She's cake queen!

Summer Fun

We had a great holiday weekend visiting family in San Antonio. Evan got to hang out and play with his cousins a lot and he seemed to love it. He, Lorah (almost 3) and little Nathan (9 months) played in the kiddie pool. The older kids (Nicole and Joshua) had a water balloon fight with aunt Helene and uncle Jorge. It was a great time!

We've also been visiting the sprinkler park regularly here in Austin. Evan is such a little water baby! He loves the water and is not afraid of the sprinklers at all.
