Danny's Birthday!

Happy Birthday Danny! As you know, I'd rather do just about anything than a birthday party. So we loaded all the kids and headed to Pirate Island Pizza in Orem. It was pretty much a new and improved (and sanitary) Chuck E Cheese. Everyone had a great time, thanks to our friends Casey and Ashlee for tagging along so Danny could have a friend with him!

All the pirates singing happy birthday to Danny

Danny got a new bike and an optimus prime transformer

Blowing out all 5 candles
After telling Danny about 500 times to come in the bathroom and comb his hair, he finally came in and told me so so proudly, "I'm 5 now so when you yell at me, I don't get scared." Thats the truth!

Well, my trip has come and gone. Time sure has a way of flying by. It was great to see my parents! I'm glad I saved the trip for the end of their mission and not the begining. I'm missing them bad all over again and glad they're almost done. The weather ended up being crummy so we spent a lot of time just hanging out and visiting. It was relaxing. They did drive us around and show us where their office is and a few other places. I was pretty proud of my dad, we never got lost! Some of the missionaries came over one night and you could just see the love they had for my mom and dad.....especially my dad! It made me realize why they are there. I guess I can share them for a little while.

I wanted to buy Jonah an Austin Collie jersey so bad.....

The girls. Leaving for the airport in a blizzard!
It was so fun to take this trip, and I couldn't have done it without Justin keeping ALL the kids! He's awesome.

I get to see these two in a couple days. Its been 8 months and 2 days since I've seen them (whose counting?) I'm so proud of them for serving a mission but I can't wait to have them back. I am lucky to have such great parents.
