Celebrating Camden


Today we celebrated Camden.
He turned 3 on April 17th.

Camden sitting on the table in the great hall of the statehouse. He is in the middle of saying to me "Your a cute chipmunk" as I snapped this picture. We call each other chipmunks...kind of a silly thing between us.
We drove down to Fillmore to have a little Birthday picnic.
We normally celebrate Cam's Birthday here at home and each year we have a special guest....Camden's Birth Mom, Samantha. She lives in Southern Utah which is a ways away from Utah County so this year we decided to pick a park that is halfway for each of us.
It was a very informal gathering....and unfortunately very cold and wet.

But most of all it was fun!
I wanted to share a few pictures for our fun birthday adventure!

After the picnic we all went over to the historic statehouse which was the territory's first capital building.
It was more fun than I thought it would be.

When we returned home Camden had one more present to open we accidentally left behind. He just had to open it with his new black & decker goggles on.
Our day started early and ended late in the evening.
It was one of those days where you feel so grateful to be a parent, to be part of a family who will drive 3 hours just for a picnic and you look around you and see what the Lord has blessed you with!
Today was a wonderful adventure!
special thanks for g&g H, uncle Ryan and Craig and Aunt Vicki.
for driving all that way!
And Sam...we love you and your cute family!!! Thanks for being there!

Everyone looks like they had a great time. I think it is wonderful that you have such a good relationship with your childrens birthmoms. I hope we will have the same experience one day.
