#1 : LA getaway for my birthday weekend. We visited our friends, Chris and Lindsay and visited Mark's cousin Kevin and his wife Adrianne. Deacon was awesome on the drive there and back! It was a pretty fabulous weekend.
Mark and Kitty.
#2 : 2nd birthday event - went bowling with friends.
#3 : And to keep the birthday fun going as long as possible... had dinner with my family for my birthday and Mark's.
Deac loves his Nana.
#4: Date night - I won.
#5: Did some yard work. The dogs watched and Deacon supervised.
#1 : Ate "Mexican" (Top Shelf) for Mark's birthday with his family. Yummy!!
#2 : For Mark's birthday weekend, we got together with friends (Gary&Holly&Cora, Brett&Carly&boys, Riley&Alexis, Joel&Jenny, and Greg) for lunch at Nello's and laser tag! Laser tag was actually pretty fun, I completely stink at it. I'm glad the guys had fun though.
#3: Celebrated Mark's sister Kristen's birthday a few weeks later!
#4: We decided to paint the house... FINALLY! I had gotten used to the yellow walls and kind of forgot how horrible they were, until I looked at this picture!
And here's what it looks like after... It's kind of a stone gray, between gray and beige. Still a lot to do but sooo much better. Can you spot the baby in this picture?
#5 : Mark begrudgingly agreed to get family pictures taken. I was so excited, and I love the way they turned out!
#6 : One of my best friend's fiance got baptized! I couldn't be happier for Tori and Jovan. They're perfect!
