Wow! How is my son already a one year old?! He is my main squeeze, my little heart throb and my pride and joy. To celebrate all that he is to us, we threw a western roundup at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. We had an awesome time with family and friends. I’d say it was a success and a lot of fun!
Look at this awesome cake made by our friend, Cheryl!
It was so beautiful and yum, yum, yummy!
