Big Birthday Weekend!

Gage turned 2 years old on August 14th. We threw a big Birthday bash on Saturday to celebrate with our friends and family! Birthdays are special to us and we enjoy putting together a day of extreme fun for Gage and his friends (and for the adults!) This year we had a bounce house and a pinata. I think the kiddo's had a blast!

We are so thankful for this handsome little fellow that has brought so much joy to our life. It's hard to imagine life before his arrival on earth! Thank you to our friends and family for celebrating this day with us and for your unconditional love and support over the years! Enjoy the pictures of our fun-filled day!

We had a football themed party and gave out eye black to each kiddo that wanted to wear it!
Even Grandma enjoyed the bounce house! Gage's lil' "girlfriend" - Ava! Gage and Miss Cassidy! Lining up for the pinata! He's not quite sure about this, but he had some nice "whacks!" Mai - taking her swing! Michael - what a cutie! And they swarmed like bee's! Gage didn't know what to do! But, he did enjoy the candy! Abrielle - being silly! Time to open presents - LOTS of presents! And time to eat the cake!
Happy 2nd Birthday Gage! We love you so much and look forward to many more!

El Jefe

In addition to coaching and teaching 100 hours per week, my husband and his good buddy have started their own brewing business - El Jefe Breweries, inspired by an old "wise"man. (Sorry Mark - you aren't that old!) I'm hoping it takes off...I have no problem marketing a tasty beer...this could be my lottery! (Ha!) Check out their website at

This was their first batch...I'm not a beer drinker so I'm not the best judge of taste, but I hear it tastes pretty good.

Gage helped put the labels on the bottles. Don't worry - no El Jefe for the little one! He has about 19 more years to wait!
