Salt Lake Vacation!

Daniel went on a trip to San Diego for a wedding and we decided to hang out and play like we were tourists in Salt Lake City until he got back. And guess what? We are exhausted! I took the kids to Hogle Zoo, Liberty Park, Splash Pad, Breakfast picnic at Sugarhouse Park, Swimming, Flying Kites, Jungle Jim's Playland (like a mini-amusement park for kids) and a Tour around Temple Square. This post contains lots and lots of pictures and a few videos, it is A LOT even for me, but I just couldn't help myself. My two favorite subjects were Elise and her best friend Kalena, they are always up for posing for the camera. Enjoy these pictures from our vacation.

"You Say it's Your Birthday....."

Happy Birthday to ME! I had a fun day with the fam. Daniel and I saw the new Star Trek movie (awesome btw) and went out to a new Mongolian Grill, then Daniel, Elise and Carter made me a cake.
As for this week Elise had one filling at the dentist and on the way home proceeded to chew her numb lip. Now it is a week later and it has FINALLY healed! Who knew it would cause so much damage, but all is well. Today was also Elise's last day of pre-school. Kind of bittersweet, but I know she is excited for her new school next year. Enjoy a few pics from this week.

Rockin our 3D shades

Yummy!
 Elise photo bombed every cake picture we took
 This is what happens when you bite your lip...(this was the first day)
