Today we celebrated my brother Scott's 20th birthday with a family party at my parents. Well, his birthday is actually on Tuesday, but today is the day that worked to get everyone together. We had a special time...I'm so thankful to have such a great brother!

Joel enjoyed some fun time with his grandpa this afternoon.
Happy birthday Scott...we love you!
Joel eating his slice of watermelon at lunch. :)
This little man absolutely LOVES bathtime. Justin snapped a couple adorable photos of him this morning as he played in the bubbles!
I was at Trader Joes last night picking up some YUMMY grean beans (if you haven't ever had TJ grean beans, they are delicious!), and the check out man gave Joel his very own little balloon and attached it to his wrist. He was entranced during the ride home and for a good bit of time after we arrived home. He is discovering that life is so exciting. :)

First Tooth

Here's some cute pics from the CA State Fair. It was a family tradition of my (Katelyn) family growing up which I absolutely LOVED! help us begin our own family memories, my parents gave us tickets for my birthday. We had a blast looking at all the animals and watching some of the shows. Joel stayed awake for the entire afternoon and evening, taking everything in.

"What is that funny looking thing, Dad?"
Our little family :)

our adorable little man!
Joel also cut his first tooth last week. After a couple days of mothering a VERY fussy baby, we rejoiced greatly to feel the little tooth break through! He's growing so fast! Below he is knawing on some frozen fruit.
