Happy 1st Birthday Fischer!

Our lives were changed in an amazing way 1 year ago. We never could grasp how much more we could love until you were born. You are truly a gift from God and feel so blessed that He choose us to be your parents. We have watched you grow so much in this last year. We have watched you eat solid foods, learn how to sit up, roll over, then crawl and now almost walk, speak your first word, go from no teeth to eight and what has been most exciting is watching your personality transform. You are turning into a precious little boy. You have the biggest smile that melts our hearts.
The day before you turned 1! :)

2 Peter 3:18 says But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. This is our prayer for you! We love you so much!!!! We are excited to walk along side you as you grow up.

Playing in the Rain

I love monsoon season! It's so nice to sit and listen to the rain and thunder. We took Fischer outside while it was raining and he loved it.

Fischer's 1st Camping Trip

Last weekend we all headed up north camping. I can say it was an adventure. For the most part Fischer was a good sport about everything. The last night he decided to wake up about 2am and was not satisfied hanging out in our tent. So this lead to walking him around camp in the pitch black and then loading him up in the car and driving him around for a couples hours so he would get some sleep. We arrived back at camp about 5am after driving around and decided to sleep in the car (with it running) until Fischer woke up. So despite the lack of sleep Blake and I got the last night we had a good time. It was good time to spend with family and friends (even celebrated Dianne's birthday). Blake and I have always loved camping. There is just something fun about being outside, cooking with a camp stove and sitting in front of a camp fire (cooking smores of course). We know Fischer will adjust and hopefully enjoy camping too (because he really doesn't have a choice since we will all be going camping again). HAHA

My dad surprised us and brought a metal bucket so Fischer could take a bath. We heated up the water over the camp stove. Fischer very much enjoyed talking his bath in the great outdoors. With him still crawling and well just being a boy a bath was definitely needed.
