We have been partying for the past 3 weeks! We have had two one-year-old birthday parties, one 3-year-old party, a baby reunion, a graduation party and finally a church picnic. We are crazy party people!!
Watch the girls break down at CJ's 1st birthday party - it happens so fast... Don't miss Rachel's new skill at the end of the video. She's ditching this party! Seriously, we all had a good time.
Today was the church picnic and the kids had a great time except maybe Alyssa who announced our presence to the world with her cry and showed everyone why we call her "loud". A special thanks to Kristy Shepherd (CJ's mom) for the picnic pictures.
I'm holding Julianna and Sally is holding Alyssa - one of the few people who can keep Alyssa content for any length of time!!
Kirk and Rachel
Caleb "caught" his first fish at the catch-and-release pond. He loves to be down my the water.
Here's Caleb being swung by Mary Alphs and her daughter, Amanda (Caleb loves them - they babysat him for us while I was in the hospital)
And here's Caleb when you actually want to take his picture...
Kaitlyn never left the grass sleds - even after hours and hours she didn't want to go home.
Keeping up with the Nelson's is easier said than done!! Till next time...
