Sunday Shenanigans

One nice thing about having early morning church is that we get Sunday afternoons to relax and enjoy some down time. Today the kids were especially good and played so well together. The girls loved being in their mermaid tails together. The kids set up all the teepees and had their quiet time in them. For the evening we headed to the Ericson's to celebrate Brynlee and Michael's birthdays. It was such a great day!

Visit from Grandma

My mom stopped by to wish Brynlee a happy birthday and bring her a gift. She stayed for the afternoon so it was fun to sit and chat!

Brynlee's 7th Birthday

What a fun day! It was Brynlee's birthday and we had a blast celebrating it. I took ice cream sandwiches to her class and they were all SO excited about it. After school we relaxed a little bit then headed out to the bowling alley. We haven't taken the kids bowling in a very, very long time so we weren't sure how it was going to go. Remember the awful experience we had miniature golfing a few weeks ago??? Ya...Josh and I were a little worried we would have a repeat situation. But luckily it was anything but awful. The kids had SO much fun and were so excited for each other. I couldn't believe how much they encouraged each other and complimented each other. It was one of those experiences that made me realize how much I love this family of ours and how blessed we are for each of these kids to be a part of our family.

After bowling we headed back to our house for Chinese food. Sweet and sour chicken is Brynlee's favorite, so we invited Josh's parents, Rachael, Aaron, and Vivian over for dinner and to celebrate with Brynlee. She opened her presents, played with them, then all the kids headed to bed. Happy Birthday Brynlee!!! (Btw it has been the biggest stress relief having had her friend bday party 2 months ago! I'll have to remember this for the future!)

Gardner Village

Last minute we decided to continue on with our crazy busy day and head to Gardner Village. It was beautiful weather and the kids were all excited to see all the witches. Gardner Village is now one of Josh's accounts, and it's a huge account so he wanted to bring the family down to meet all the different managers. It was fun to meet them and we enjoyed the whole evening. The Trimbles came with us and we brought Jada since she had been with us after their soccer game. We ate dinner, found all the witches, took a bunch of pictures, and loved every minute of it!

Hip Hop Convention

Brooklyn had a hip hop workshop ALL day. She loved every minute of it. I was able to go to the end of it and they showed off all the dances they learned all day. She did great! 

Brynlee's Soccer Game

I don't get to make it to too many soccer and bball games bc it seems like they conflict with other things going on. But once in a while I'm able to catch some games. Brynlee has been playing soccer this season and has enjoyed it. Their team is very new so they are still learning, but continue to improve with each game. Good job Bryn!

Bingham Flight

Brayden continues to tear it up on the bball court. He team has continued getting better and better and they are a lot of fun to watch. Brayden keeps loving it more and more, which motivates him to work harder and harder. He has started scoring a lot more than he has in the past and we are impressed with all of their ball handling skills...all the drills are paying off!
