Here are all the fun things we have done.....o ya, I got a new mama van!! That's right, the person that said I would never, ever drive a mini van got one!!! And I LOVE it!!!! anyway, you will see one quick pic of it and I will post more later!

So, Jake had 12 of his friends over last night for a his birthday party. They played in the backyard, did a pinata, had cake and opened presents. It was lots of fun!!





We had a party at grandma Strong's. Jake got the coolest cake and lots of fun presents. Thanks grandma!!!




opening presents at home with us on his birthday. He kept telling us he wants a suit like daddy for church!!! So, he got his suit...I cant wait for him to wear it....so funny!!


Then we did the circus on his birthday that night. It was lots o fun....but really long!! The kids loved it.


And finally today was the first day of soccer. He is playing with his cousin Jonah. He loved it and did so great. And yep, that's my new ride!!!

Love the new ride. I am thinking that a van sounds like a great idea. Cam would never buy me one. Looks like you had a busy birthday week. I love it when my birthday last all week.
