Rugger was baptized on Sunday, June 2nd and we rolled that event and the girls' birthday celebrations into one big, happy lunch party at our house afterward.

With presents.

And cake.


On Ryleigh's actual birthday, all she wanted to do was make cupcakes.  Easy enough!  She had the day off from doing chores, picked all her favorite meals, and we went to Jazz in June in the evening with some of our buddies.  

Reise was happy to find out that it was National Donut Day on her actual birthday!  We had fun making homemade donuts and sharing with the daycare kids ;)  We took some friends with us to the spray ground and hit up the library at the birthday girl's request.  It was a fun day. 

There aren't adequate words to do justice the pride we feel when we see these kids of ours growing yet another year older, and making big decisions.  Big love.
