While in Oregon visiting family, we celebrated Elena's first birthday a little early. (She'll actually be one on June 12). We had a simple get together at my sister and her husband's place out in the country. It was the ONE sunny day during our whole visit, so we were thankful. As nearly all parents will remark, we can hardly believe our little baby is almost one. The growth and changes she's made are incredible. We look forward to another year full of more!
