Lucy's 4th Birthday
|We celebrated her birthday at Disneyland. Unfortunately, we didn't take any other pictures, not even of the birthday cupcakes!|
|The Ariel birthday cake was a huge hit with the girls at the party. |
Thanks Jodie! She can do a cake for you, too! Here's her blog:
|The birthday girl. I like to keep the parties simple. We invited a few friends to the park, played, ate, did a craft, and had a treasure hunt for gift bags. Easy and fun!|
|Look at that happy Lucy, I think she had a good first friend party. |
Anna's 8th Birthday
|We told Anna that she could get her ears pierced on her eighth birthday. This is her right after.|
|Birthday celebration with the fam. I did cupcakes because she was already had a cake at her friend birthday party.|
Anna's Friend Birthday Party
|She wanted a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake. Nice freezer burn! It still tasted good.|
|View from our third level, so many girls.|
Spencer's 2nd Birthday
|We spent the day celebrating at Disneyland (We celebrated for Anna, too. Their birthdays are two days apart).|
|Another Jodie cake! Spencer loved it!|
|This kid is always drooling, but he's still cute!|
|Look at how much he is enjoying that cake! He's so happy!|
|I love Lucy's pose in this one.|
|I love this cutie picture, a little cutie and a big cutie. I don't thnk I used cutie enough in that sentence.|

I guess I never got back on the wagon. Blogging is hard for me! Our external hard drive crashed in August and most of our pictures are on there. It was devastating to me that we don't have our pictures anymore, but we are hopeful that we can retrieve the stuff on there. Anyway, it also made me realize how important it is to record what's going on even if it's just a few stories and pictures here and there. I AM going to post more often now.
We spent almost all of July in Utah. We went to the Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone and stayed in a big cabin in Teton Village with my whole family. It was so fun and beautiful. I would love to retire there. Unfortunately those pictures are on the external hard drive. Here's some highlights of things we did that I actually have pictures of.
Hanging out with my sister's fam and their dogs in Springville.
Having fun with cousin Mia
Shannan Keyes--we've been friends since 3rd or 4th grade.
Lindsey Van Ballagooie--friends for about 14 years! We met when we both worked at Wal-Mart.
My sister Amy's visit to California.
Aliso Creek Beach
Disneyland on Amy's birthday!
Amy's birthday dinner.
Spencer's first time licking the beater from the birthday cake batter. I didn't give it to him, he's got Lucy's leftovers. I just loved coming out and seeing him so happy licking the beater.
I had my 32nd birthday also in August, but no pictures to post. They were too hideous and they made me look 10 years older.
That's it for the summer. When we came back to California, I started teaching art lessons and that consumed a lot of my time. It was fun, though. We still managed to go swimming as much as possible and to get some fun times in before school started.
