Grandpa and Grandma Rutledge

Grandpa and grandma Rutledge came for a little visit. It was great fun. We went to Wheeler farm and we went for a hike up at Donut Falls. It was a short trip but the kids loved seeing them and playing with them.

I would like to label this picture "Someone get this kid a happy meal!" Truth is Tessa totally grabbed his face and made him cry.

Tessa's 1 year old

Tessa turned one on Aug 23. Still can't believe my baby is one! We had a tiny party for her. I got the idea on a blog I follow. It was fun. We had tiny hamburgers and hot dogs, tiny bow tie pasta salad, tiny drinks, tiny chips, tiny fruit skewers, tiny donuts, tiny cakes, tiny brownies, tiny gummy bears, tiny goldfish, tiny m&m's, tiny lollipops, and tiny oreos. And we had a tiny pony come at the end of the party! It was lots of fun.

Katie let me have it in her backyard. I wanted to hang these on a tree and I don't have a tree in my backyard..well at least like this one!

Tessa had NO hesitations in digging in. I put it down and her hands went for it!

Ethan and Claire are Tessa's cousins who we are SO glad moved back to Utah.

One dad and one of our tiny guests!

Couldn't get a smile.

Tessa LOVED the pony. Laughed the minute we put her on till she got off. I love this little girl so much. She has so much personality just like my other two. She is a good baby but very vocal if there is something she wants or if she is upset about something. She is constantly moving. She has the biggest smile and loves to be chased. I am so glad she is part of our family.
