Birthday Celebrations

Last month we celebrated two very special birthdays, Jacob's and Tyler's. Earlier in the week we had a nice dinner with Mom & Dad Hobbs at PF Changs. We enjoyed spending time with them and the food, ice cream and presents. 

Thursday September 24th we went to McDonalds for happy meals and lots of playtime for Tyler. 

Saturday was the big party/BBQ for Tyler. This involved the whole extended family and a few friends. We had dinosaur crafts along with fun treat bags with dinosaur crayons. Tyler got a lot of nice gifts and it meant so much to Tyler to have his family and his friends there. So thankful to have family so close!

New Mexico State Fair 2015

This week we went to the state fair with our good friends Sean and Arielle Larson. We got there pretty early and were able to see a lot before it got too busy. Elise's favorite part was the petting zoo. She has such a great love for animals and it was hard to get her to leave.

   Such a great smile!

   She loved being around the animals.
    She wanted to hug all the animals

Tyler loved playing in the dried corn, next to the model train exhibit.

   So much fun!

They also had lots of fun at the McDonalds farm with all the activities and the popsicle they got at the end.

We enjoyed good food and great company! I had a Rex's burger and Jacob had a deep fried bacon wrapped peanut butter cup and breakfast burrito. 

After the fair we headed to Chili's for a late dinner. That night the proceeds went to Saint Jude's. Jacob and I both love this charity so it was a great night to go out.

   So thankful for these awesome friends!
   She loved corn on the cob!
