What a Weekend!!

We had a crazy weekend! Saturday we took my grandpas truck to their house in Ogden and then went and visited my Grandma Petersen. Porter had a fun time playing with his Great Grandma and enjoyed all her fun toys, especially the puppy. I thought these pictures were so cute!!
After visiting for a while we continued our trek down to Springville for my friend Chantal's Bridal Shower. It was a lot of fun and it was great to see so many old friends. Aren't we so grown up. I think we look like we could still be in highschool.
After such a busy day we drove back that night and were exhausted! Sunday we woke up and had church and then went to a birthday party for little Izzy, she turned 1year old. During all the crazyness I had to remain calm, because about a month ago I began planning a surprise birthday party for James 30th birthday. It was going to do it the sunday before his birthday but a lot of our friends were going to be out of town. So I moved it to this weekend. Saturday evening James realized that throughout all the driving he had done the day before he had an expired license! So I drove all day sunday which worked out for the best when it came to his surprise party. At 6pm James brother Jason called and said his car battery died and him and Casi were stranded at the park. SO we hopped in the car and I drove us to the park, (where everyone was waiting). James pointed out Jasons car, and was confused when I parked across the street from his car. I then was able to say the word that I have waited a long time to say, (since my surprise baby shower, when James had said them to me). "Have you ever felt that someone has pulled the wool over your eyes!!" It was a lovely moment for me and a confused moment for James.

We all hung out and chatted for a bit and cooked a hamburger and hotdog barbecue. Of course the weather was rainy and freezing. We all stayed and ate and had presents and then went home to get warm. It was so much fun, and I owe so much to my friends for helping me pull this off. With out them it would no have happened. For those of you that know James you'll understand what an accomplishment this was. I also have a special thanks for Jason for his fantastic lie that got James to the park!
Chelsie made the cupcakes for James and they were not only cute but delicious! I love the cupcake kabob idea!
These last pictures are of Porter (of course) He was being so silly the other night with his pacifier I snapped a few shots of him. It looks like he has a funny nose.
Crazy boy
He has been so tired from the long weekend we had that he fell asleep while eating last night.
To cute
What a happy kid! We were told the other day that he is happiest baby they had ever seen. (We actually get told that a lot) But then they said that we should look out because that means our second should be a holy terror. :) I guess we'll just have to wait and see about that. He is such a happy boy though.
