V Date

Darin took us on a VICTORIOUS V- Date.
We VENTURED to Temple Square's VISITOR's Centers.
We ate at the NauVoo Cafe and got a VALIDATION for our parking.
We went to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building to check out the VIEW of the VALLEY .

Right now at the JSMB they have an awesome display of the "helping hands" that kids have sent in.
We sent in ours earlier, but we didn't find ours.  (Shocker, I know!)

They also had a cute place where you could write the service you'd like to do.

Lindsay = "I will smile at everyone I see."
Matt = "I will help push Sister Weber's wheelchair"
Andrew = (with help from dad) "I will clean up the messes I make."


Andrew loved seeing the choo-choo train (Trax).

We went to the Family Discovery Center.
It was my first time.  If you haven't gone...GO!!!
It was seriously so awesome!!  So fun for all ages!!

UDDERly beautiful MOOsic!!

I am the primary chorister in my ward.
(By the way, I am pretty sure that is the best calling in the world!  I LOVE it!)

We had our Saturday practice yesterday, so I put together some treats for the kids.
We did cookies and milk with a cow theme.

"Holy COW!  You sounder UDDERLY aMOOzing!!

Don't be fooled by the amount of cookies.
I only made one batch, and then bought the rest.

This is brother and sister Moody.
Lindsay said, "Did you do all this for the MOOOdy's?"
I thought that was so clever of her!

I sure love being in primary with this cute group!
And I have the MOST AWESOME chorister partner, Laurie, who missed this photo op.

Valley View Color Run

My sister, Heather, is the PTA President for Valley View.
She planned and hosted a "Color Run" for their PTA fundraiser.
It was a fun event for the whole family!  We had such a great time!
I hope they do it again!!

My mom was one of the volunteers and was the first "sprayer" on the race. 
She NAILED Matt and he LOVED it!

And she barely got Lindsay, but Lindsay HATED it!

Nut, by the end she LOVED getting sprayed!!

Eliza's 5th Birthday

Cute Eliza turned 5!  Kristy went ABOVE and BEYOND and planned an AMAZING birthday party!
Really, every detail was incredible!  It was so magical! 
They had a bibbidi bobbidi boutique, magic fairy godmother dust, games, treats, and so much more!

And our darling niece, Becca, played Cinderella for the party!

I sure do love these two cousins together!

Happy Birthday cute Eliza!

Trip to the Cabin

This weekend we took a quick trip up to the cabin with my sister and her family.
I usually take a ton of pictures, but this time I didn't.

We did a lot of the usuals...campfire, movies, shooting the BB guns, the fairy forest, and hiking.
Oh, and lots of yummy food.

I didn't get my camera out until our final hike, and for the ride home.
The colors are starting to change and it is beautiful up there!

Thanks for joining us, McMurray family!!
