FC: Austie & Tia Happy 4th Birthday Austie!!! I love you so much!!!
1: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories.
2: Austin, From the first moment I saw you, I knew you had changed my life forever. You had the biggest, brightest eyes. You were absolutely beautiful and amazing! I loved you with all of my heart from the day you were born and I will love you always. Love, Tia
3: Since Tyler took up most of the room when you guys were in Mommy's belly, you were used to being snuggled and in limited space. Hence, you've always been a super snuggler! And you fit perfectly right in the crook of my arm!
5: You were super sick right here believe it or not. I started singing "We Are the Champions" to you and you absolutely loved it! This was the beginning of your love of music!
6: All things grow better with love.
7: We took you boys swimming, at the YMCA, for a birthday party. You didn't really love it at first, but warmed up to it a little, by the end.
8: Happy times cuddling together! Tia and her boys!
11: Super cute random pictures! Could you have been any cuter?!?!? No way!
12: This was a super fun day in the sun, just hanging out in our front yard! | Your wings were my absolutely favorite!!!!
13: Nothing but love!!!
15: 4th of July at the firework show in Aberdeen. You were a total super trooper. Hung out all night, happy as can be!
17: Austie and Tia complete cuteness! This was the next Fourth of July at the Aberdeen firework show.

28: The top and middle pics are from our park adventure at Friends Landing. | The bottom pics are of our first Easter egg hunt! Super fun!!!
29: This was our crizzle weather year! I believe it was April when we got this snow! I taught you how to catch snow flakes on your tongue and you loved it! | One of your favorite games was to put this bucket on our heads and knock on it. We'd say, "Where'd Tia go?" It would crack you and Tyler up every time! Total cuteness!!
30: The both of you LOVED feeding me goldfish crackers! You would stuff them into my mouth faster than I could eat them! As you can see, you also liked to feed me food from off of the floor! It was hilarious!
31: This was our day trip to Cabella's. We looked at fish and played on the tractors. Nothing but a great time!
32: Reading time was always the best! We loved to get our read on!!!
35: This was our second Seaside adventure! Check out my wings! I think you got yours from me! :)
36: The first of "Uncle Rodney's Ride's". I love the picture on the right. We both look like total hardcore bikers. Lol. That was some serious business right there. :)
37: This was taken at the hotel we stayed at when we went to see Thomas the Train. We hung out at the pool and the next day went on our train ride and checked out Snoqualmie Falls. It was an amazing time! This is one of my all time favorite pictures of you and I. So cute!
38: This was your 2nd birthday! We were gonna need to read your new book!
39: Our day at the airport! You, me and Tyler hung out while Mom and Heidi went skydiving. We ate lunch, played with a super cute dog that hung out there and watched people jump out of planes. It was a great day!
40: This is one of the best pictures ever! If you look at your eyes, you can see me taking this picture of you in them.
41: Chill time at home is the best!
42: We loved going to the beach! We would go almost semi-monthly! We would pack up our toys, grab a pizza on the way up and play our little hearts out all day long! You guys always loved attacking Tia, so this trip we had some of that magic on the beach!

I love you so much Austie!!!
