Andrew's birthday

Yesterday was jam packed. Brandon and I had one final practice before the primary program. That went from 10-11:30. Andrew had a meeting with the youth at church from 5:30-7:30. So, Andrew and I had this little window of time where we could go out. I was hoping to do something cultural. I searched around online and found a Community Guitar Celebration that was going on all day. Perfect! We got a babysitter from 12-4 and took off. We heard some an amazing young classical guitarist and later listened to a fun Bluegrass band. We love live music.
In between performances, Andrew got to try out the classical guitars that were for sale. He has been wanting a new guitar for a while now and almost decided to get this one, but backed out at the last minute. I think he wants to save up a little more.

We stopped for ice cream on the way home. Mmmmmm.....Cold Stone..... They have pumpkin ice cream right now--love it!

After his meeting with the youth, we had cake at home with the kids.
The birthday boy.

Why did I choose blue frosting???

Me and Whit. (The only reason my piece of cake
is so small is because I'd already eaten a huge serving of Cold Stone!)

The card Brandon made for Andrew:
He thought it was the funniest card EVER!
"Ha! You're TWO years old dad!!"

Thanks for the updates - you could write a book with all of your family happenings - you have great characters, good plots, lots of adventures, and things always have a happy ending! So this blog is a book of sorts - pretty cool.

We agree with the former

I am green with envy about how gorgeous your neighborhood is, especially with the fall leaves.

Happy Birthday Andrew!

Happy Birthday, old man! I can say that cause I don't turn 30 for 6 and a half more months...then I'm officially old, too:( Love Brandon's card - that is pretty funny:) Pumpkin ice cream at Cold Stone sounds SO good! Maybe we'll have to stop there when we're in UT for Thanksgiving...and Sonic...:)
