Catching up - July

July is my new favorite month of the year!

Independence Day Celebrations, Harper's Birthday, Our Wedding Anniversary, the HOT weather, and all the FUN things that come with Summer!

The theme for Harper's 1st Birthday party was "Surf's Up" I made this surfboard cake all by myself (well Garrett helped a little) I had a lot of fun making this for my sweet son and hope I can top this cake next year!

My very thoughtful Mom made this footprint of Harper for me - that's right I received a present on my son's birthday!

I made Harper an ABC book with pictures of him holding items of the alphabet, it reminded me why I don't like to scrapbook but it turned out really cute, he loves to see himself in a book and I'm very proud of my work.

The birthday boy was not interested in eating his cake, of course he loved the ice cream but just played in the cake and frosting!

Harper started walking the beginning of July. All it took was one brave attempt and then he had it mastered and was walking from our TV area into the kitchen. I was prepared for this because crawling was the very same.

Our handsome boy taken with our new camera, we had troubles getting some pictures from Harper's birthday off our old camera so off I went to buy a new one! I had been wanting this camera for a long time and thought what better reason so not to lose anymore valuable memories.
