At the end of June and the beginning of July we had a lot of celebrations!! First, Hunter turned one year old on June 23rd! Second, Clar graduated with his MBA from the University of Phoenix on June 26th! And third, Nena turned three years old on July 9th! We had a graduation party at our house after the ceremony for Clar and his brother who also graduated and decided that since our kids birthdays were both right around the graduation we would just have some cakes for them and celebrate their birthdays that day too since all the family was already there! We had a bunch of fun water things outside for the kids to play with like pools and slip and slides and water balloons and water guns and sprinklers! It was a lot of fun and I wish I would have taken more pictures but I was too busy and only ended up taking pictures of the birthday cakes. The cakes turned out really good though I made Nena a Belle cake because she loves princesses and Clar made Hunter a construction cake full of trucks and dirt!!!

The graduation ceremony

This is the best close up picture that I got during the whole thing.

We are so proud of Clar for graduating and for accomplishing this big goal and for sticking with it even though it wasn't always easy!!!

The kids and their cakes



Playing in the pool

We gave Hunter some cake and he got so messy we had to clean him with the hose

Hunter's birthday!!

It looked like so much fun that Nena joined in
And so did daddy

He did pretty well at opening presents but Nena was so excitied that she ended up doing most of the unwrapping

Nena got a bunch of princess things for her birthday!

And we even made another princess cake!

We can't believe how fast the kids are growing up!! It has all gone by way too fast and although it is sad to see them grow, it is also fun to watch as they enter each new stage in life!
