"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Declan's birthday

July 17 was Declan's 2nd birthday!!! We had a birthday party for him a few days before, so it was pretty low key with just our family on his special day.
Our big boy is 34.1 pounds and 3 feet tall!  Declan is a DELIGHTFUL child and such a joy.  He loves to be just like his daddy.  He loves protecting his little sister and trying to copy his big sister.  He is always trying to wrestle with Colt, so I'm sure they will be best friends one day soon.  Declan is a sweet sweet boy and recently has started to talk a lot so it is fun to see his personality come out even more.  We are so thankful for him!

It started out with breakfast at Joe's Farmgrill with a special date with Daddy!
Chocolate Milk for the birthday boy!
Blowing out candles on his French toast sticks
After breakfast Raelynn gave Declan her gifts.  She chose some things for him all by herself and she was so excited to give them to him.  She specifically requested that we go to Target to shop.  She chose a puzzle, a ball, a fish card game, and little goldfish snack.  She knows what he likes!!
Then we all went to Toys R Us for Declan to choose a gift.  I signed the kids up for their birthday club and they send a $5 gift card to them on their birthday.  Pretty awesome! 
He chose a new ball--no surprise there!
After our shopping trip we came home to get our bathing suits on and went to Someburros for lunch.  We thought it was $10 off, but FYI it is only one free menu item! 
We went to Perry High School Pool and it was so fun! It is really shallow for the kids and there is a splash pad there, too.  We stayed for almost two hours!

Before we left for dinner, we said good-bye to our three Elmo balloons! A good way for us to get rid of them before the helium was gone.  I was ready for them to leave our house:)
For dinner, Aunt Marissa met us at Joe's BBQ and we gave Declan his gifts.....Sunglasses and Thomas trains!

Stoked about his new toys
Finished off a busy day with dessert at Liberty Market.  The big man blew out his candles and we sang to him one last time.  What a great day!
This one is funny because I was telling Declan to open his eyes and instead he shut them real tight, hah!
