Preston is 18 months old today!!

My little pumpkin is 18 months old today! He is such an energetic boy and is always on the move.  We are so happy to have this little sweetie in our lives.

He recently took his 3rd airplane ride - we flew to Iowa for 2 weeks to visit family. He was the center of attention the entire time! Whenever my cousins came over, they would immediately whisk him away. They were like mother hens playing with him and feeding him. They did a great job and it gave me some much enjoyed free time and he was eating up all the attention. Someone asked me if he was walking yet because he was always being carried around - LOL!! While we were there, we celebrated my Grandma's 89th birthday and had 35 people at the house for Easter dinner! There was an egg hunt outside and Preston got his own Easter basket which was almost as big as he is! We went down to the Mississippi River so Preston could touch the water. We went back later that night so we could see the bridge lit up. It changes colors several times every minute and is really pretty. A big storm moved in during our last weekend and the tornado sirens went off. That was pretty scary! Luckily all we got was rain and strong winds. Other than that one storm, the weather was beautiful and we had a great visit.
