Okay, I have a LOT to blog about. It was a very busy week with Chandra's wedding, family here from out of town, and Mckinley's FIRST birthday. Before we get to the birthday stuff, here are a few other things.
They were gorgeous and it gave me my fix for the year.
All week long lots of time was spent on wedding preparations and Friday was the big day. It was also Annie's birthday (my sister-in-law). Here's a little family picture at the reception.
They had a candy bar which was awesome. We are enjoying all the leftovers. :)
Chandra, Roland, and all the grand kids.
Okay, now I know this is a lot of pictures for Mckinley's birthday but come on, it was her first one! And she's our first kid, so of course we were super excited for it. (If it makes you feel better, there are 116 pictures/videos from her birthday celebrations on my computer, so this actually isn't very many.)
Here she is in her adorable little birthday outfit. Her shirt says Baby's 1st Birthday.
Later that evening we went to Carl's Junior for dinner. She wasn't in the smiling mood so I asked her to stick her tongue out instead.

We went back over to Brandon's parents house that evening to spend some time with his sister who is in from out of town and Brandon's dad wanted to take Mckinley to the park for her birthday. It was a little chilly and she was tired but we bundled her up and went anyway.

My brother had been wanting to try out these chocolate cakes from Costco and decided Mckinley's birthday would be the perfect time. That thing was so rich!
Mckinley didn't waste any time digging into it. I think she would have eaten the whole piece if we let her.
The only bad thing about turning one was that she had to go to the doctor today and get shots. Oh, how this girl hates getting shots.
