Happy Birthday!

Mike had a fun first birthday hanging out with his cousins for all of Memorial Day weekend. (He decided to wait to celebrate his birthday with Mom's family until after Aunt Beth gets home from her mission in Sweden on Friday)

To make his birthday complete he suddenly decided he was completely done with bottles and formula (on to milk from the sippy) and he started walking more than a few steps. He still mostly crawls, but give him a week or two and he'll be walking for good. Here are some pictures of the fun:



Mike's birthday cake! (I ordered it from WalMart - It was yummy)

Bath time!

When Mike was teeny tiny he HATED baths.














But...now that he's learned how to splash...he LOVES them!

Elder Burgoyne reports to the MTC

We took my brother Aaron to the MTC on Wednesday, May 7th. He's going to the Germany Munich/Austria Mission and is very excited. We'll miss him, but we're very proud of him! Mikey won't remember him, he'll be three years old when Aaron gets home!

As we watched my family walking back to their 8 passenger van afterwards, we both thought of how strange it looked for my family to have only three kids. Well, for three weeks anyway.

My parents and siblings, except for Beth, who gets home from her mission in Sweden on May 30th.











Just the siblings.
