Family Birthday Party

I'm a little behind with blogging, but I will try and catch up!  We had Summer's family birthday party on the weekend after her birthday (August 6th) and except for Uncle Jordan who was working at a camp in Colorado, all of her aunts, uncles, grandparents and even Great Grandma Sandy were able to come celebrate.  We are SO thankful for such an amazing family for Summer.  They shower her with love and prayers and we couldn't be more blessed!  Here are a few pictures and video from the day.

Here are a few videos:
Summer loves dancing to music, so this first video is of her dancing while we were waiting for lunch to be ready.
This next video is of her with the cake.  She didn't exactly dive in like I had hoped :)!!!!  The best word I can use to describe her demeanor is "confused"!   She just didn't understand what was going on, but it was really cute!
She love graham crackers, so we stuck some in her cake, and then she enjoyed it a bit more!  I think she was still a little overwhelmed with everything though!
This last video is her with one of her presents, a little stroller.  It is the first time she has walked "on her own".  She has the walking part mostly down, but needs to work on her steering!
What a fun day!  Thanks to all our family for making the trek to Apple Valley to help us celebrate!

Ah, what fun memories we have of Summer's first birthday party. In her one year of life, you have taken many adorable videos of her, but the first place prize absolutely has to go to the one of her dancing. Priceless!! I've watched it about 15 times so far and can't get enough of it. :)
