Rivers turns ONE!

June 18, 2009

This past Friday our little man turned ONE!!!!!!!!! WOW has this year flown by. Rivers has brought so much joy into our home. Anyone who knows him can testify that he is the sweetest most lovable baby! Its crazy how much little ones change in the course of a year. As you can see from the pics above and below, our precious baby is quickly turning into a toddler! It's been so fun to see his personality gradually show this year. He is our "quiet" one most of the time, but he is the happiest kid I have ever met (except when he is hungry, sleeping, or teething!) He loves to be around people, especially people he knows really well. He is SO curious about everything, and loves examining and studying things. He started crawling (well army crawling) around 10 months old and is into everything now. He is beginning to pull up and let go now, so I know its only a matter of months before he takes off and is a full blown toddler. He loves to laugh and his sister can make him laugh more than anybody else. He is an EATER. He eats twice as much as Madeline, and I think I'll be in trouble once he gets older! He is very affectionate, and loves giving hugs and kisses these days.

We had such a fun day celebrating his birthday. We woke up and had breakfast with the Murrays and then went swimming with most of the Frantz cousins. Rivers had a feast of pizza and birthday cake for lunch. He demolished his piece of birthday cake... yes he shares his Daddy's sweet tooth. Not only was it Rivers birthday, but it was Will and James' 3rd birthday, so that afternoon we went to their birthday party. We had lots of fun celebrating the life of our little man. What a precious blessing from the Lord he is, and what a blessing it is to be his MOM! Happy Birthday Rivers, WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

Pickin Strawberries

Mike has an incredibly busy week this week, so on Saturday we took full advantage of his day off and had a Frantz Family Day of FUN!!!!!!! We shopped the neighborhood yard sale that morning. We found some great deals, but even better made some new friends! Then we went strawberry pickin at Huber's Orchard over in Indiania. It was a sweet treat... as you can tell from the kids faces!

Workin hard!

"There are just so many ... can't I eat some!"

"Mmmmm. . . Good!!"

Brother liked them a lot too!

"I didn't eat many strawberries?!"

Top it off with homemade strawberry ice cream, YUM!

I think we can honestly say that Huber's is our new favorite Saturday spot! We finished the day with naps, an local cultural festival, and dinner with some of our great friends from church! It was an awesome weekend to say the least!
