Blast ball & Birthdays...

Our nephew Konrad is playing on a "blast ball" team this spring, so Jon and I joined the family at Sardis Park on Saturday morning to see him in action. It was pretty cute watching all the kids stand distracted in the field and then dog-pile when the ball was finally hit in their direction.

Getting ready to hit a home run...



After the game, we all headed back to Erich & Naomi's for Calvin's 1st birthday party.  Its so hard to believe that a whole year has already passed since we went to meet him in the hospital for the first time.  I know its awfully cliche, but kids really do grow up too fast :)  He's become such a little boy and is always quick to offer a smile and outstretched arms.  We love his easy-going spirit and the distinct personality he has.  We feel so blessed to have the niece & nephews we have. 

I don't think Calvin really understood the business of having a birthday and had most of his gifts opened by his very eager brother and sister... :)
As you can see here, eating the gift wrap was far more interesting to the birthday boy...






Seeing as Calvin's birthday is in the spring, Naomi had the great idea of doing a "worms & dirt" cake, and took it one step further with her creativity by making the layered dessert in a bucket.  It was so cute & SO tasty :)

Getting a taste of cake for the first time.  He was a little hesitant at first, but as soon as he realized how good it was, he didn't hold back...

Mozart in the making...
Happy Birthday Calvin! 
We love you so much and can't wait to see you continue to grow over the next year!
