Lilah's 1!!

What a crazy week!
It has been a while since we have updated the blog, mainly because there has been no time whatsoever! Between planning Lilah’s first birthday, work, getting the wedding in order and a trip to Council Bluffs to visit Finley I feel like we haven’t had a chance to sit back and relax.

Lilah’s first birthday part was a success and I think she had a good time! We held the party at Pearson Park and grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. She spent most of the afternoon just walking around and observing everything and everyone, swinging and devouring her first birthday cake. We will have pictures to post soon but I have honestly never seen anything like it! She LOVED the frosting on the cake and managed to get it everywhere… considering that it was red and black frosting it was a disaster when it came time to try and clean her off. She had so much fun that she actually took an afternoon nap- sleeping for two hours (unheard of on a weekend). Her actual birthday was Sunday so we met Grandma Julie, Grandpa Loyed, Uncle Ry and Frances at the Drake Diner for breakfast and then went and played with Grandma Cece and Pop.

On Tuesday we went to Council Bluffs to see her brand new cousin Finley. She did a good job with the baby and didn’t get upset when Ryan and I held her. Congrats to Tiffany, Chris and Levi!!!! She is absolutely beautiful!!!
