We finally made it to Utah after a long 9 hour drive for our summer break! We will be spending the next 3 weeks here so Brady can prepare to take his part 2 dental boards in a couple of weeks. We will be so happy to have those over and after that, we're ready for graduation next May! I can hardly believe it's already been almost 4 years that we moved out to Los Angeles. I know I will miss it more than I can even explain. It's been such a blessing for our little family. I will forever cherish these years that we were in school! 

On to part 100 of Bentley's 1st birthday party... I'm totally kidding (but not really). We were going to have Bentley's party on the beach which in my head worked out great. But then I got to thinking and decided not to (thank goodness). We ended up having it at a little park by our house and it was absolutely perfect! These were the invites we sent out.




We served chicken salad croissants, goldfish cups, fruit skewers (with pineapple, blueberries, and marshmallows), cupcakes, sugar cookies, homemade caramels (from my friend Jenae), and lemonade! 







We included a little book where our friends could wish Bentley "Smooth Sailing"


Favors "For the Little Mates"


 



 


I ended up finding this adorable shower curtain at Target that totally went with the theme! It made the perfect back drop for our photo booth. I brought the boat we used in
so the babies could play and get pictures in it as well!























That face? Priceless!





























It was the happiest of birthdays for our sweet little boy!
