beedee and corbin had been planning a trip to mount st. helens all summer. with lots of busy schedules we didn't make it until a few days before school started but it was the most perfect, clear day to go! we stopped at the visitors center and walked through the museum and watched a movie about the volcano in their theater before heading to the johnston ridge observatory to get a closer look! corbin loves learning about volcanoes but is also a little weary of them since he knows the damage they can do. with some reassurance the mountain won't be exploding he was ready to go explore it! the drive up to the observatory was absolutely beautiful! i wish i wasn't driving so i could have taken a zillion pictures of the scenery.

we had the funnest time celebrating corbin's fourth birthday. he started the day with his special requested birthday breakfast of lucky charms, a cereal i never usually let him have. i let him fill his bowl as much as he wanted, he ate all the marshmallows, and then told me his tummy hurt. haha then we were off to beedee and papa's house for some present opening before we headed to fox hollow farm. except corbin was so into playing with all his new toys we never made it that far. he was more than okay with that though.
his other request was to have a root beer float at xxx root beer drive in so at dinner time we headed there for some greasy food and root beer floats! i'd heard they do a fun celebration for people's birthdays so i was even more excited about his choice but when the time came and our waiter came and scooped corbin up and took him to the front of the restaurant and started decorating him he kinda lost it. afterwards he told us he thought the waiter was taking him. so sad. poor kid is learning about strangers and even though we were all RIGHT THERE the thought was in his mind. made for some funny (after the fact) pictures.

we celebrated layla's first birthday at the zoo just like we did for corbin's first birthday! this year has gone by so fast it's hard to believe my baby is toddling around with her own sweet little personality. i'll have to catch up on her monthly posts and fill in all the fun stuff she's been up to.
afterwards we stopped by our favorite local cupcake joint to sing her happy birthday and let her dig into the sugary goodness!
