Alphabet Dates-- I Date

Today we went on our “I Date.”
We started with an INDIAN dinner from Royal INDIA.
Next we INVITED some friends to go ICE-BLOCKING.
We finished the date by watching The INCREDIBLES and eating ICE-CREAM.




I LOVE the view of the temple from here!

Pioneer Day

I LOVE Bountiful's Pioneer Day.
We LOVED the parade, and we loved the fireworks at Heather's even more.

McMurray's are so fun!
Heather had crafts for the kids (they made glow bugs with eggs, pipe-cleaner, and glow-sticks).
Then, Greg used his potato gun to launch otter-pops, candy, and glow-sticks.

Oh, did I mention how many glow sticks they bought?
1,000--- ONE THOUSAND!!!












Isn't that a BEAUTIFUL sunset!?  I think I took 20 pictures of it!  LOVE it!


This might be my favorite picture from the night.
Me and my 3 siblings.
I LOVE them!  They really are the best!
Here we are oldest to youngest.
Heather, Rick, Ben, and me.

This picture really does make my heart happy.
Oh boy, I just love them so much!







Happy Pioneer Day!---
And you MUST watch this video of Greg shooting off the otter-pops, candy, and glow-sticks!

Mom's Surprise 60th Birthday!!

Last night was my mom's surprise 60th birthday party.
I may have been planning this for about 6 months.
My mom really is the best. I mean--REALLY THE BEST!!

We did a "double surprise" party.
First the immediate family surprised her at dinner at La Cantina.
(I forgot to snap a picture of her surprised face, so she humored me and did it again).


After dinner, Dad blind folded mom, and we had a second surprise party at our house with all of the extended family.





We had LOTS of desserts
(Chocolate cake, red velvet cupcakes, lemon tart, vanilla blackberry tarts, lemon bars, lemon cookies, chocolate covered marshmallows, keylime pie, sixlets, and lemonheads).


We watched a slideshow of mom's life.



Here is the slideshow, if you're interested








Rick and Uncle Steve roasted the marshmallows over mom's 60 candles!  






And we gave her a book of 60 memories from friends and family!
Thanks everyone for all your help!!


Happy birthday wonderful mother!!
