Clark's First Birthday (Visit to my Folks)

When my camera comes inside from the cold it does this weird halo thing. Anyway...my sister-in-law Robyn and brother Jonathan...

Bekah, I and the boys went down to my folks on Wednesday night. Brad followed Friday morning.

My dad reading a very animated story to Atticus and Clark -- Watch his face (-:

My dad with Lincoln

This is blurry, I know, but I had to keep it for the gesture and expressions...

And my dad's smile...

My brother Jonathan making his son Clark's first birthday cake -- a John Deere tractor, of course. My mom baked the cake, Bekah made the frosting, Jon and Robyn cut the cake, and John and I frosted it.

(Note: Robyn is expecting her and Jonathan's second child, a girl, in just another month)

Jon and Clark -- who's ready for his cake-eating.

My dad getting a kick out of Lincoln's happy and ferocious raspberry-ing

Clark's not so sure about this cake object...

But he decides to try it anyway...

He decides it's not so bad after all.

Some of Clark's many cousins

My Mom & Dad

Lincoln learned to sit on his own over the weekend -- while my dad was babysitting him! -- Hurrah!


Brad's magnificent hair -- I'm pretty sure he hasn't had a haircut since Lincoln was born. And, for the record, we plan to keep him unshorn for awhile yet....

Bekah brought her new Rock Band program and there was much playing of it over the weekend.

I love when Brad and the boys wrestle together...

No trip is complete without Atticus and Dietrich and their crazy naked running game...

Bongo playing....

Clark taking a walk...He doesn't need a hand but he likes one sometimes anyway...

Happy First Birthday, Sweet Clark!!

I'm not sure what this says about me, but I laughed outloud at the naked running game pictures, and then proceeded to call Eric in to see them too. -l
