Soph's hunt for for Birthday Bugs!!

Thursday night (her actual birthday) we ate cake and opened presents with just the family. On Friday night, her friends and more family came over and went on a bug hunt. We played a game where teams of two wrapped their teammate up in toilet paper. So they looked like caterpillars. Clever right? Well we had a BBQ and afterwards opened presents and had more cake. The night or so before Sophia's birthday, I told her that her friends were going to come for her birthday. Her response: "Oh goodie! I love them people." 
This is Sophia's birthday cake. Aunt Candace made it.
All the kids loved it. 

These are the kids playing the Caterpillar game 

Sadie and Emily came in second place

This is Sophia about to make a wish on her candles
Side note: I need to start blogging about the funny things Sophia says. On Saturday we went up to Ronnie's Grandpa's property and when we left, Sophia just started crying. We asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I miss my fwends. I wuv dem." Then she kept saying last night, "Guess what?" Then you would reply, "What?" She would get all up in front of you, get a smile on her face, "Get outta town!" Yeah, she has a little humor if you can't tell.

Well that was the weekend in a nut shell.

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Hope you all have a wonderful Independence Day. 

Our weekend adventures!!

A couple weeks ago we went to the Panguich Utah hot air balloon rally. If you are ever in the area it is a beautiful display you would not want to miss. The kids where amazing (who am I kidding? so were the adults)
This small town has a full schedule of events that give you a feel of "back home"

the next weekend we took a trip to my husbands family property on Cedar Mountain, again a beautiful display!

Take me out to the baseball game!!

Go Team Washington City!!
 Our little slugger played for team Washington city this spring season.
This was an interesting time for him, he learned that his toughest competition was not wearing a different jersey or running drills with him during practice but rather something a little deeper. He learned that in order to be successful he must tame himself (im not totally convinced he put it together as such however) He had to learn focus, manage his emotions and work hard to be a viable part of the team. 

He also got to learn a bit about pride. The kind of pride you feel when the good guys win. When you feel that you are part of the team, community and country. The pride you know when you know honor and respect first hand.
