Utah Trip and Adin's First FIRST Birthday

I had the opportunity to go up to Utah to visit with Miah's mom. I drove up with Adin on Monday, July 13th, and then Miah flew in the next Wednesday, the 22nd. We had a lot of fun!!!
The first weekend we were there, it was "Draper Days", and so we went and watched the parade Saturday morning, and then the fireworks at night.
Watching the firetrucks
Enjoying a sucker thrown during the parade

Possibly the best video EVER... this is Adin enjoying the Fireworks!


Saturday, July 25th was Adin's first Brithday. We celebrated it with Myself, Daddy, Grammy, and Adin of course. When Adin woke up from his nap, he climbed up stairs to find his party all ready for him. Of course, we could have ended it as soon as he saw his bouquet of "ba-ooms"
So excited, he's getting all tangled up!After the excitement of those died down a little, we sang to him and gave him his first birthday cake. He didn't much know what to do with the cake, but he wanted to grab the candle. Then once he touched the cake and got the sticky frosting on his fingers, he wanted nothing to do with it. We put a piece on a plate for him, and practically had to force feed him the first bite. After trying some though, he thoroughly enjoyed it!

Then we helped Adin open presents.
Grammy got him a super cute Safari outfit... but I think I am more excited than he is!
We got him a mini Radio flyer wagon, some little carsa shape matching toy and some books.
Happy Birthday Adin!! We are so grateful to have you in our lives.

Thank you Grammy for a wonderful visit! We Love you!!!!
