Happy 1 Year!

We celebrated our little lady as a family on the natal day! We took Annie to her favorite beach and practiced walking up and down.

She also got to have pizza and a whole foods cupcake! It was a gorgeous day to just reminisce about our sweet Annie's entrance into the world.

Then we had a fun get together that was owl themed. I took very few pictures but it was such a great time of kids running in the backyard, all the dads being home, and great conversation! 

And someone loved her cupcake!

She also received a lei for her birthday!

We have loved being Annie's parents. It has certainly been the hardest, most rewarding, most blessed year of our lives. We have learned so much about ourselves and will surely learn more in the coming years, but year one has been so fun to see Annie grow, change, and get such a fun personality! She is our sunshine and the greates gift we have received (other than daisy of course!)

Thanks for all the love and support throughout year one! Now onto year 2!
