Harper's party was a hit this year! She had a blast with all of her friends and family. She was running around playing with everyone, jumping in the bounce house, and enjoying the spotlight. We are so thankful for all our family and friends - we have so many that are so fabulous. I can't believe so many people love us and Harper so much. But they do and we had a great time getting together to celebrate Ms Harper.

Harper definitely figured out what birthday means. To her birthday means, cupcakes and presents. She doesn't get to eat sweets very often, so this was like the culmination of all things good in her world.
Grayson just turned 3, so he was learning that everyone else gets a birthday too.
He wanted a cupcake so bad but Kristen made him wait till Harper had hers first.
Uncle Eric fed Harper until there wasn't a single crumb left.
The ice cream sundae bar turned out pretty good. The ice cream
got just the perfect blend of frozen and melted by the end.
Kara accidentally spilled the m&m's and Kevin made fun of her. Then, an
hour later, Kevin spilled them! Those two are just right together.
We got an ice cream pinata and let each of the kids take a few swings at it. Most of the kids were under 3 so they were a little confused by hitting it. But Grayson is obsessed with baseball so he finished it off for us pretty quickly.

After the pinata, the adults just got to relax and talk. It was so nice that the kids just ran around and played so well. Since we are moving, it was a huge blessing to be able to see these friends again before we go. I know we will still see them, we aren't even moving that far, but it was still nice.

Jessica, the real birthday girl!
We had the birthday on Sun. June 9th because the next weekend was Father's Day.
Sweet Jessica came even though it was her actual birthday and she was celebrating with her own
family that day. But we are glad because we got to tell Cayden hi. He'll be here in October.
So thankful the boys got to stay and just relax. When they come up ususally, it's for a holiday which is always hectic and busy. This was a great time for us to just hang out and enjoy catching up.
