Silver Dollar City

We had the supreme pleasure of making a trip up to Silver Dollar City last week while Jake, Mindy and Jagger were in town. It was chilly but an otherwise perfect day for visiting.

Jagger maintained a very neutral disposition most of the trip. He was trying to look cool for Edy. I think he secretly had a good time though.

And I have decided that Heaven will surely be a lot like Silver Dollar City. There will be family, tasty food, roller coasters, and Christmas lights year-round. What could be better?!?

The Day Of.

She wore her birthday hat with pride. Briefly.

And I attempted to make pancake initials like my mom always used to make for us. Notice the lower-case "e." It's terrible, I know. But I have years to perfect it.

So just you wait, EJ. It will get better.

The Day Before

We went to the park over lunch on the day before her birthday. It was perfect Fall weather for celebrating.

A Few Days Before

Edy spent time with Ju Ju, Grammy and Papa K (as well as all the other grandparents, of course, but the camera was not present. We still love you all terribly though.)

Birthday Week

In true Hall-fashion it took an entire week to fully celebrate Edy's first birthday.

It all began with a party on Saturday.

Despite receiving beautiful hand-cut blocks that her daddy made and enjoying the amazingly delicious birthday cake that her mother slaved over for hours and celebrating her birthday with her buddies Owen and Gibson, Edy spent most of her birthday party chasing after a mylar balloon. Figures...

Happy One Year, Edy.

It's been beautiful.
