Natural phenomena and stuff

This past Wednesday we were hammered by Hail Storm. The hail ranged from golf ball size around our apartment and baseball size and larger some miles away. Every car that wasn't under a roof got a number of dings.

Windows were broken in some cases. We covered our car with towels to prevent window damage. No broken window for us on account of the hail.

On a different topic, while we were in Southern Utah a Solar eclipse happened and we were lucky enough to be in one of the best spots to see it. We were able to get some footage of the moon going in front of the sun.

And we had a friendly neighborhood cicada break out of its old skin with some brand new wings right  next to our front door.

The Boys Birthdays

I think I have offically become someone that doesn't blog never often and that makes me sad because I used to be so good. Oh well, I am blogging this so that counts for something right? Because the boys birthdays are so close we celebrated them together. We started out the celebration with a pool party with friends. It was a casual, come swim, and eat some yummy food type of party and it was perfect. Thanks for everyone that came. 
 The next day was actually Liam's birthday so we ate cake for dinner. For real. That is what we had for dinner. There were no complaints. Liam sometimes forgets to smile for the camera. 

 Here is the smile! 
 And Landon turned one. He is not sure what to think of all of this. 
 It is really not fun when you touch the flame. Yeah we are awesome parents. 

 Poor baby! 
 Liam got into the serving of the cake. 

 Landon did eventually recover and both of them loved the cake!

 After the cake that we had for dinner we had to work it over with an after dinner walk. We feed some birds. I love these pictures of Liam and Roland. 

And that is it. We also had a party in St. George(we flew on Landon's birthday) but that will have to wait until the next post.
