Today Opa and Nina flew in for the weekend festivities!!! The kids and I went to pick them up at the airport while Brad maned the grill. Owen was SO excited to be going to the airport to pick up Opa and Nina, I think he must have told me 100+ plus times about it on our 25 minute drive there!!! : )
Owen colored a sign and I helped by writing the words! He was excited to hold it up for them! Addyson wasn't too sure who we were looking for but she was helping us look!!!
He see Opa!!!!
He was so excited that he went running after Opa, crossing the big "Do Not Enter" mat and set off the alarm. This was actually the second time he did that. The first time he just got a little close and I was too busy keeping Addyson from trying to walk down the stairs that I didn't catch him. We were in BIG TROUBLE with security and told if he happened again we would have to leave. : (
Well silly Opa left Nina downstairs in the bathroom and so we couldn't leave! She was waiting for him downstairs and we had NO WAY of getting ahold of her so it took forever before she came up to find us. "Nina, where are you?"
Owen-"I see Nina!" Me- "Dad, hold on to him!!!"
We were finally all together and couldn't wait to get back to the house. Owen was a big help and helped Nina with her suitcase!
Brad had yummy chicken wings and grilled veggies waiting for us with cold beer!!!!
After dinner, Opa and Nina took the kids for a walk. What a great evening!!! We are so glad you are here for a visit Opa and Nina!!!
"Opa, where are you?"
Notice the security guard coming after our sweet, little Owen. We almost got kicked out of the airport.

event last year, when Addyson was just a couple of weeks old, and Owen had a blast! I started planning right away to go this year and was excited to see how Owen would react a year older and I couldn't wait to see what Addyson would think about animals. It is funny to look back at the old pictures and see Owen as a baldy!!! Look how little he was. He was really brave about touching animals but didn't start out that way this time.

She is a great listener and understands most, if not all, of what we say. She will follow simple commands and requests like "come over here" , "give daddy a kiss", "sit down", and "wave bye bye". When we are out I usually let her walk around by herself because she will come back when I ask her to or motion for her.
I have loved watching Addyson grow this year and it has been so much fun to see Owen grow as a big brother and Brad and I grow as parents of two! What an amazing year we have had! I look forward to all this next year has in store for us!

Addyson had plenty of helping opening presents!!!!!!!!
She got some really cute outfits from my mom and the Rincons and a new swimming suit and cover up from my mom! She also got this cute stuffed Sandhill Crane from Sara and Rod (the mascot for the wildlife reservation they are living on!) as well as a jewelry box and rabbit!
She also got cards from Grandma Saberniak and Grandma Blessing! My grandma, who has over 50 kids, grandkids, and great grandkids, never forgets a birthday and always sends you a card with 5 one dollar bills in it! Addyson went right for the money!!! That's my girl! It was a wonderful evening and am thankful to everyone that helped make that day special for her! Happy Birthday Addyson!
