Birthday Visitors!!

Grandpa and Grandma Bates flew in from Kennewick WA to celebrate Piper's 1st Birthday. Piper spent lots of quality time with her grandparents and really enjoyed "TV" time with you can see. We went for a nice walk at the oceanfront and had just missed the Neptune Festival...each year people from all over come down to build enormous sandcastles.
Piper got a pony for her birthday...doesn't every girl need a pony??? She didn't like it much at first because it "Nah's" and wags it head and fact she was downright terrified of it...since then she has grown to love pony. It always amazes me how much kids like boxes. The last photo is Danyl pushing Piper around in the kitchen on a cereal box...she thought it was the best ever!!

Happy Birthday Piper!!...and Daddy!!

Piper celebrates her 1st birthday....and Daddy turns...31!!

My how the time has passed! We can't believe that she's already a year old....on to toddlerhood! She has grown so much, she's her own little person now. We celebrated her birthday at home with family and friends. Grandpa and Grandma Bates flew in for the big event. We grilled burgers and dogs, I made my typical potato salad, fruit salad and baked beans...a simple menu but it turned out to be a great lunch. A friend baked Piper's cake which was absolutely beautiful and full of detail...Piper even got her own "personal" cake to destroy! She LOVED digging right into that cake and smashing it up....what a blast she had!

Hope you love these pics as much as we do!!
