This collage represents the day we had today... sunshiney fun, filled with lots of love! We spent the day with my family to celebrate our many June birthdays, which included our two nephews, Tyson (7) and Seth (2). The reason you only see Garrett and I with our nephews (the lil blondie is Owen (4) in this collage is because that is basically what we did all day -- have fun with them! For Ty's gift we got him a Nerf dart tag game, which was a hit with all of the boys. For little Sethie, we got him a bubble blowing Lawn Mower!!! He spent quite a bit of time "mowing" my dad's front yard :) These boys are obviously a precious gift from the Lord and my brother and sister-in-law's # 4 is on his/her way!
Next, is the cake... yes, the awesome Lego Star Wars cake that I was up until 3am last night creating (mostly because I was too lazy to do it earlier that day!). Garrett built the lego thing (haha, dont know what to call it!) and helped instruct me on how to keep the cake "cool" versus "little boy-ish." I do appreciate it though, because Tyson just stared at it for awhile and told his cousin and brothers how "cool" it was. When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, he immediately replied with "Chocolate!!" so I made him a yellow cake with strawberry filling and lots of chocolate frosting -- he later let me know that it was very good :) yay, Aunt Amy! hehe
... and yay for a fun weekend with family! It was a hot one and I am very thankful for the sunshine... Hope you all enjoyed your weekend as much as I did and have a blessed week!
