On Chloe's actually birthday we decided to make a trip to the zoo. Dana and Zoe came along and it was so much fun. It is amazing how kids can never get sick of the zoo. They always have so much fun including myself. It was a perfect day.Chloe is officially 1 years old. She was so good. She sat in the stroller pretty much the whole time eating and looking at the animals.

This was the first time ever that I have seen a bear swimming in the water. It was a little scary having just the glass between you and this huge bear. I have never been this close to a bear before. It was so cool to see.

Max loves seeing the hippos, but I don't know why because all they do is sleep. But I think it is because he loves to say hippo and it was one of his first words regarding an animal.

Chloe 1 years old

Yesterday Chloe turned 1 years old. I can't believe that she is 1 already. This past year has gone by so fast. I still remember the day that she was born. It was 10:50 in the morning when I heard a weird sound and to my surprise Chloe was born without even a push.Chloe Beverly Veirs

Chloe is such a great little girl. She is a very easy child. The only time she really cries is when she is hungry, tired or when Max takes a toy away from her. People always tell me that she is always smiling and happy whenever they see her. Chloe is just a very happy little girl. She is very active and very loud especially for her size. She loves to crawl every where. I don't think she will ever walk because she knows that she can crawl just as fast. She loves her big brother so much. She loves to play, laugh and even wrestle with Max.

We love you and we are so happy that you are in our lives. You bring so much joy and happiness into our lives. I thank Heavenly Father every day for sending you in our lives to be our precious little girl.

Chloe's 1st B-day Party

This past Saturday we celebrated Chloe's first birthday. We went over to Granddad's and Mimi's house to celebrate. We made our own little pizzas, went swimming, had a pinata, ate cake and opened presents. It was a lot of fun and it was fun celebrating with family.
Max has gotten so comfortable and good at swimming in the pool.

I did decorate outside for the party even though you can't really tell

Happy Birthday Chloe!

Even though Chloe couldn't hit the pinata, we had to have one anyways. They are so much fun and Max and Skye had fun hitting it.

I made the same cake that I made for Max's 1st birthday. I gave Chloe the bottom cake and the boys/adults had the cupcakes.

I wanted the classic picture of the child eating their birthday cake and getting it all over their face. I tried it with Max, but he would not even touch his cake and Chloe just screamed when she touched it. I don't know what it is but they don't like to eat cake with their hands. One of these times I am going to get the classic birthday picture. I might just have to wait until they are 5 or 6 to get it.Happy Birthday Chloe!

4th of July

We spent our first 4th of July in Seattle. It was a great day for Seattle. In the morning we went down to the lake to kayak and play at the little beach that they have down there. Then we went swimming and had a BBQ over at Granddad's and Mimi's house. It was a lot of fun and very relaxing. We didn't make it to the fireworks because the kids were so tired from a fun and exciting day.
