August was busy, and full of awesome things....birthdays, blessings and graduation!

It kicked off with Cam graduating from Texas Tech with a Personal Financial Planning Masters and an MBA.  He did so well and I am quite proud of this guy:
Can you spot Cam?

Guns up

 Leelee was a good sport during the ceremony.

This is my favorite picture.  
Liam always sticks is arms out like this.

We blessed the little man: 

Cam turned 31

The man loves York peppermint patties.

Sister Teigan turned 30, and her sweet husband enlisted family and friends to send us videos and pictures saying "happy birthday" as a virtual surprise party for her.  There is some footage of her 18th birthday mixed in as well.  

On the big 3-0, one should be surrounded by friends, and should not have to make their own cake. Here's to you, Teigan... smile big.

We went on a little trip to New Mexico, just the two of us... leaving Liam with G-ma Deb.

We went to Ruidoso, NM and did some hiking, Batman watching, eating and SLEEPING IN!

On the way home we stopped in Roswell, NM because we couldn't just pass up the famous alien museum.  Roswell is known for their history with alien encounters and "The Roswell Incident".  It wasn't the highest quality museum, but it's nice to know that if we needed to put up our own museum  we could laminate construction paper and tack it to the wall and people would be ok with that.

Our new friends.

Then we headed out to Denver and I decided to turned 27.

These boy cousins are the cutest.

August was a good month! Fun to be busy, see so much family, and do so much celebrating of  exciting things.
