where: ruby turns 1

ruby bday

ruby is the favorite child of all of my mom’s side of the family, because she’s pretty much the only child. (besides mason who is far away!)

david and i feel forever bonded to ruby gal because she was born just a couple weeks before our wedding. so we can always be on track with her age and our anniversary!

even though she gets passed from person to person every 60 seconds, ruby stays cool as a cucumber and mellow as can be. she was really confused what to do with her birthday cake and why she had 30+ people staring at her and taking her picture like a celebrity photo shoot.

happy birthday ruby pyfer!

where: the parents wine and dine us

minus the wine, of course.

fam time 2

last saturday the whole brown clan was all in one city! my parents came to bring bailey kate to EFY, and then they hung out with the rest of their children while she was off on that adventure for a week. and just our luck – momma shari kunz came to town at the same time!

family time

we soaked up all our time with the fam. we ate out a lot, which is a rare treat for us and our strict budget lifestyle. we went to settebello and dolcetti gelato, we had a picnic at memory grove with moochies majorly messy sandwiches, we hit up lone star taqueria on our way down to utah county, and topped it off with plenty of treats from the likes of banbury cross donuts and farrs frozen yogurt. all the hot spots! all the deliciously unhealthy hot spots.

we also went shopping and touring park city main street, went to a community pioneer day breakfast and parade, had a birthday party of our little cousin ruby, and played some intense rounds of the new family favorite game, perpetual commotion.

here’s to family bonding!
