Celebrating 100 years & counting

Brandon's mom and some extended family did a beautiful job of throwing a birthday celebration for Ma Doris! We met up for a family BBQ on the Birthday Party Eve. DeeDee always goes all out when she hosts.

The IPAD was our saving grace with so many beautiful things within little hands reach!

On Saturday, we got up and packed the car back up before heading to the party.

The party was at 2pm with pictures at 1pm. We were able to convince the boys to get an early rest but not Sophie. I just let her get up and get ready with me. On the way to the party she started showing signs that she might have been "going down"

and I was worried about what was to come. Thankfully,we secured some jelly beans on the way. With those,
the party food


and under the table recreation,

we made it through pretty much unscathed! {I know, we are so prim and proper... Be jealous}
We were blessed to be able to make it!!

You know I love a reason to dress up our little cuties!!

It was great for our kids to meet and spend a bit of time with this part of the family!

Of course, we were thankful for Aunt Tori's presence!!

And we made sure to squeeze in some recreation time...

After the party, we headed to our last road trip destination to the B.E.A.C.H!! With Daddy this time.

It was great because I was able to ride & blog!!
