A Watermelon Party

We had lots of fun at Elise's Watermelon BBQ birthday party. The kids had fun jumping on the tramp, using the slip n slide, having a huge water balloon fight, playing with bubbles and don't forget the yummy food and cake. :) All in all it was a sweet birthday. Happy Birthday Elise!

Happy Birthday!

Fun Fourth Festivities

We headed up to Idaho again this year for the Fourth of July festivities. We went to the parade, had a BBQ at my sister's house and we barely made it to the fireworks. Hey it's a long day for the kiddos. We also got to see the movie Inside Out and go to a birthday party for my nephew Austin. Good times. Enjoy :)

"Part of Your World"....

We surprised Elise for an early birthday present with a trip to Salt Lake City to attend the musical, The Little Mermaid. It was so wonderful to watch their faces during the performance, it was priceless!  I am happy to expose my kids to musical theatre at a young age. I have always loved it myself and I am glad that Daniel loves musicals too. We also went to a fun splash pad while in Salt Lake. Then we left for a Fourth of July adventure in Idaho. Until next post....

That's what happens when you get your tickets one year in advance. Ha!

Getting excited for the show to start!
