Jake's BIG 30!

Happy Birthday Jake!!!

It's his big 30th Brithday this year! We celebrated it a little early this year... over the weekend, when we would have time to spend the day having fun! We started off the Birthday celebration with a good old fashioned parade. It was the annual Three Forks parade, kicking off the rodeo weekend. This was the first parade the girls have been too, and the first parade I have been to that after all the floats (and cars, and horses) have gone by, they turn around the come back the other way!! You get the see the whole thing twice!! I love Three Forks!

Waiting for the parade to start

Here it comes....

The girls got sooo much candy. We weren't prepared and didn't have a bag for candy. I totally forgot parades throw candy... what was I thinking??? But we managed to get their giant stash back home. :)

After the parade we came home and got ready for the celebrating. Megan, Nick and our neighbor Mike came over. We grilled steaks, ate cake, and just hung out. It was really nice. I hope Jake had a great Birthday!

Rainbow trout cake. :)

Jake thought it would be fun to build some birdhouses for the girls to paint and hang on our fence. Of course the girls had tons of fun painting.

Here they are hanging on our fence. We don't have any birds living in them. I think by the time we did them, the birds already had established their nests. Hopefully next year we will have some birds move in.
