Goodbye Comb-over!

Owen has never been accused of having a lot of hair...but, certain spots were more blessed than others (Grandma Anna liked to call it his comb-over). So last week we took him to Aunt Emily's for a new-do!

The pictures tell all...Owen doesn't like getting hair cut!

Things got better after Emily let him play in the sink while she cut his hair. And the final product is perfect! Thanks Emily!

Swim Party

Saturday, July 15th we had a birthday party for Owen at Ross Aquatic Park here in Pocatello. We had such a great time! Grandma & Grandpa Manwaring, Ben & Kaylin, Jarom, Elena, Alyssa, Halle, Carter, and little Kate all came to celebrate with us.

Here we are together! What a perfect day to swim.

Owen enjoyed hauling this swimming noodle around.

The birthday boy! Who is having more fun...Owen or Grandma?

Owen's Big Day

Today we celebrated Owen's first birthday. Who knew it could be so much fun? We spoiled him with attention and let him do things we normally wouldn't...including playing in the dirt. What a fun day!

6:30 am Owen woke up ready for a celebration

Who needs presents when you have balloons? Owen loved the balloons the most and carried two around all day long (which made it very hard for him to play with his new toys).

It's not a birthday without a pancake breakfast. Owen knew it was going to be a good day when Kevin poured extra syrup on his pancakes.

Here is Owen enjoying his new Mega Bloks. He favors the black one.

I made Owen a bear cake (don't laugh...it's my first cake). Owen thought it was great.
