PCB baby!!!

We all just spent a nice four day weekend with my best friend and her family at the beach. They live in Panama City Beach and were kind enough to let them stay with them. Despite the rain, we had a great time!!

This one is not from the beach, but it was too cute not to post.

Here are Taylor and Ryen (my best friends little boy). They had a good time together over the weekend.

Us and the kiddos.

Nell and Rusty watched Taylor so Mark and I could go on a date night. This was taken before we left.

It rained the majority of the time we were down there, so we went to the mall to pass the time. Her the kids are riding a car in the mall. It was cute.

Mark and I also watched the kids one night so Nell and Rusty could go on a date. We gave them a wagon ride around the neighborhood.

Finally we got to the beach. 2 1/2 days of rain and 1 1/2 day of sun. We took full advantage of the sun!!

Tay loved the water. She wanted to crawl right into the ocean.

Grandmom and Granddad got Tay some beach toys. Her and Ryen loved digging in the sand and Mark loved building sand castles.

She kept pulling off our sunglasses. It was a fun game for her.

Hanging with Dad.

1st Birthday!!!

This is from Taylor's actual first birthday. We got her a chocolate cupcake and she LOVED it. I think it is safe to say that she is going to have a sweet tooth just like her mom:)

Ah...she is sharing with us.

This was before she decided to smear it all over Mark's face. We should have gotten the after picture too.

She was so full afterwards. Her little belly was pooching out.

she started to get the hang of opening presents this year.

Tay and both sets of grandparents before her birthday party.

She is starting young. Oh what to do with her?

I just love this picture.

She loves wearing sunglasses. But for some reason she always tilts her head back when she has them on.

Our neighbors made Taylor a birthday cake so she could have one of her own. They did a really good job.

This was her other cake.

And here is cake smashing...round 2. It was just as messy as round 1.

She ate almost 1/3 of her cake. It was a BIG cake for a 1 year old.

She did not keep the party hat on for long, but long enough for us to take a quick shot.

She figured out that there were things in the bag, so she started digging in.
