What a difference a year makes!!!

Us on our wedding day

Todd and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary on July 21. We both couldn't believe that it had already been a year and never imagined that we would be spending it with me being almost 9 months pregnant. We have enjoyed every minute of the last year together and we are looking forward to many years to come.

We celebrated by going out to dinner at one of my favorite places.....Outback and then stopped by Dumplins to get a piece of Strawberry cake like one of the layers from our wedding cake. We of course came home and ate the top of our wedding cake which to our surprise tasted pretty good. Todd enjoyed the rest of it while I ate the strawberry.

We are looking forward to celebrating again in the fall after baby Hudson's arrival!

Safari Adventure

Mom, Aunt Judy and I took a day to take Miller and Andre to Alamo to the Tennessee Safari Park. We called this "our little adventure" because we weren't exactly sure how it would all turn out but the boys loved it and of course we did too. We rode around in our car and got to see lots of animals including ostriches, zebras, llamas, camels and many many more. At the end there was a petting zoo where we saw some very interesting monkeys, pigs, a huge giraffe and even a hyena. Miller and Andre loved looking at all the animals. Miller even fed the pig a bottle while Andre was more interested in the tractors. The giraffe was in the barn trying to stay cool but we bribed her out with carrots and Aunt Judy got to feed her some. We enjoyed our adventure and topped the day off by stopping at The Green Frog for ice cream.

Weekend in Missouri

We made our last trip back to Missouri (before Hudson arrives) for Carissa's birthday party and for our baby shower. We enjoyed getting to spend time with all of our friends at the party on Saturday and at the shower on Sunday. We also enjoyed getting to see Byron and Jennifer who came in from Dallas and my Mom, Aunt Judy and Grandmother Miller who came for the shower from Tennessee. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends and Hudson already has so many people that love him and can't wait to meet him.
