Final Summer Birthdays

Welcome to our 350th post! Since his first invite in March, we knew it would be a busy “season” for toddler birthdays.

August was a blur!

And just like that, August 2014 is in the books! After five straight weekends away from home, the Tuckers welcomed time in one place for most of the month.

Beat down!

Google Auto Awesome is…well…awesome. Every day, it uses our photos backed up on Google Drive, and creates something fun (using a program, not an actual person of course). Sometimes it’s adding David Hasselhoff in the background, floating hearts, or combining a few similar photos to create a GIF. Here are some of our favorites, including …
