My Little Artist

Luke got some watercolor paints from Scott, Amber and Charlotte for his Birthday. I barely showed him how to do it, dipping it in the water then in the paint and he grabbed the brush and painted away. He is quite the little artist! He spent all afternoon painting.

Happy Birthday Dear Luke!

Can you believe my baby boy turned 3? I can't! Well anyway, he did and it was a fun day! We found a little bike for him that he loves! We didn't put training wheels on because its so small we thought he could learn how to ride fairly easily on it. We played at the park all day. We spent time riding around trying out the new bike.He coasts on it keeping his balance by touching his feet on the ground every so often. He is very determined to teach himself how to ride on his own! He will not let us help him! He is so independent, and he's his own little man. He must be a sheffield or somehting :) Then we spent time getting wet at the spray park, and we even played at the playground. His Uncle James and Aunt Monica and Logan ("Jim" and "eeca" and "woggie" as he calls them) spoiled him and got him a cute little buzz lightyear costume! He loves it. He put it right on and started jumping around saying "ee ee on" (to infinity and beyond). Then we had ice cream and cake. I made the cake in three different bowls that are flat on the bottom. With runny green frosting... it looked rather frankenstein-esque.

Burbidge Family Reunion

Ok first of all, please note I have tons of pictures of our stay in Washington that I would love to share but... alas there are just too many! So I have chosen a few from our reunion. The first day was a birthday celebration for everyone. We played games, we took family pictures (in matching lime green shirts) and we even had a yummy costco birthday cake at the end of the day.

Friday the kids went to "camp happy" basically my parents took them for half of the day while we (adult siblings and spouses) went off and did our own thing. When we got back the kids put on a play for us! Where the wild things are. It was incredibly cute.

Saturday we spent the day at the beach. Eldon and Candy and the boys came too! It was wet and windy just like you would expect for Washington beach wheather, we had a blast!!

Happy Birthday Dear Kenneth!

It has been a while since my last post and I apologize for that. We have been making fun memories left and right this summer, and one of them was getting to visit my parents. While Luke and I were up there in Washington, Ken was home alone doing finals and finishing up the semester. I know sad, right? Before I left, I made some (good) meals that I left in the freezer for him. I tried to be a good wife but still I wasn't going to see him for 3 weeks! I had decided what I wanted to make him for his birthday, but I forgot the stuff for it at home. So, I called up my trusty cousin Aly who was still in Rexburg at the time and had her sneak into our bedroom, grab a huge sack of jeans, stuff them into a little box, and mail it to me in Washington! The day I received it, I got to work right away, cutting out squares and I sort of left a mess in the front room after working on it all night. The next morning I got the best surprise ever! Ken had driven all night to see us! My mom spotted him and frantically ran around trying to get denim squares and scraps out of sight. I only had a few days before his birthday but with help from my mom we were able to work on the quilt and keep it a surprise. He seemed to like it! For his birthday we went out to El Ranchon in good old Elma. I still think the sombrero was the best part. Then at home we had blackbottom cake and ice cream. Oh and I guess I should add that Ken turned 27.
