1 year old! Wow does time fly!! This smile has lit up our home for a whole year now and we are so thankful!! Isaac Matthew is such a sweet little guy with a little bit of a flirty, bashful side. Lately I have been calling him my little hurricane. Guess it's my own fault...if you remember he was quite literally named after a hurricane! He loves the bookshelves...Thomas' dresser...Kierra's closet...and the dish rag drawer!
I didn't realize when Isaac was born that most of his birthdays would be celebrated around Labor Day weekend. A new tradition for our family has been the Soldier Hollow Sheepdog Championships...which of course we didn't do last year because we were in the hospital! :)
Our Heber cousins used to live in Heber (thus the name)...but have since moved so we had to come up with a different plan than what we had done in the past. This year we decided to camp the whole weekend and go watch the sheepdogs on Saturday and Monday. We used to only bring the kids in the morning and then let them play at the cousins house in the afternoon, so being there for 2 whole days made me a little nervous, but they were great! Got tired and ornery at times, but overall we had a great time there with Grandma and Grandpa!
It rained pretty hard the Monday we were there, but for the most part the weather was PERFECT! Not too hot! Great shade! We had our amazing set up with the canopy and even the play pen and stroller. It was a blast!
Emily got a new hat for her new horse riding adventures and the kids rode back and forth in Grandpa's truck a few times!
We had a great time at the campsite as well! Awesome food! Great company! Lots of card playing! The girls had a blast together! I love when we can just get away and be us. The kids just love that time to hang out with each other! I wish I had taken more pictures of them, but they have tons of video of fun games and story lines they were coming up with.
We hiked a lot! Geocached, found a cave and this amazing rock slide area that we had remembered going to many many years ago! I wish we could have stayed up there longer to see where it headed. It was pretty cool!
Family time is the best! We had tons of fun!
And what better place to celebrate a birthday than up in the mountains!
Happy first birthday to this guy! ENJOY!! :)
He got some fun stuff...including these cute Cowboy sweats from Grandma and Grandpa Hoopes!
Like I said earlier. He is our little tornado man! I catch him getting into everything! But he is also the sweetest, cuddliest little guy! He is starting to say everyone's names which has been fun! He has such fun little relationships with each sibling! They all love to be around him. He folds his arms in a funny sort of way for the prayer. He pretends to talk on the phone. He was born knowing how to make car sounds! He is all boy! We love him! We love that smile! Happy birthday buddy!
