Dallas LPA Convention

We had SO much fun going to the annual LPA convention, held this year in Dallas, TX!
We got to see old friends, make new ones, and spend lots of fun times together.  Our favorite part was being with our friends from Utah that traveled with us, being with all the other LPs and enjoying the comradery, and also all the activities we did.

 Russell's favorite part was getting to actually play football at the DALLAS COWBOYS STADIUM!

Priya and "my friends!" watching their dads and brother's play football.

Happy 1st Birthday, Sameeha!

We celebrated on several occasions!  Once with just the four of us and once with the grandparents. Sameeha loved every minute of it!
Ready to party!!

Make a wish!

 What a yummy cupcake!

 Priya wanted to help open presents, 
but Sameeha wanted to do it herself.

 What a big cupcake!  Happy Birthday with the grandparents.
More cupcakes, yipeee!

Happy Birthday, Mia!  We love you!!
