Stories of July: Part 2 - Birthdays and Reunions

This July I had lots of Family and Birthday Fun! My Sister-in-law Catie turned 11, and then one of my best friends, Zoe, who I've known for the past two years turned 21, so that was pretty exciting for her. I absolutely love birthdays. Mostly because of cake.

Erin made all of these cakes for Catie's birthday. They were awesomely decorated to look like balloons, and also very delicious! I enjoyed the chocolate one the best.

We managed to get a picture of the sisters (minus Mo and Erin...)

Having a picnic - Chili Dogs and Fritos are apparently the tradition for birthdays

Happy Birthday Catie!
We are going to go to a movie and shopping soon to celebrate.

I didn't take many photos of Zoe's birthday, but I know she had a great time.

And to round it off, the last weekend in July was the Butts' Family Reunion (Jon's Mom's side of the family)

We camped in Taylor Park and had a blast! Even though it rained almost every evening.

There was a whole lot more of us there, but this was in Tin Cup, a mining town north of Gunnison Colorado. As you can see, it was beautiful during the day.

I got to meet many people from Jon's family that I didn't know before, so it was a great experience, even if it was the week before my summer finals. :)
