Pizza, Games and Presents

What a busy day!!  After sleeping in a bit and getting breakfast, Josh and I headed back from Park City and got home just before noon.  We picked the kids up from the sitter, and a little after that, headed to Chuck e Cheese's to celebrate Camden's birthday. I had been asking Camden what he wanted to do for his birthday, and he kept just saying he wanted to play.  But then he heard Easton saying he wanted to go to Chuck e Cheese for his birthday, and all of a sudden, that's what he wanted to do, too.

The food was just as bad as I had remembered, but the kids had fun.  They went home with plastic bugs and spiders, bracelets and whistles, and hopes to go back for the next birthday.

That night, nanas and gump gump came over with presents.  Camden scored with a Star Wars plane, new pjs and slippers, and a whole slew of hot wheels cars.  

Needless to say, all the kids fell asleep quickly when bedtime came!

Anniversary Celebrations

We had said that the cruise we took earlier this year would count as our 10 year anniversary celebration, but I knew that we needed to do something - even small - so a few weeks ago, I emailed my contact at Deer Valley to see if it was possible for us to get a room.  Well, just a few days ago, I heard back from her with reservations for tonight.  I was happy/excited, but finding a babysitter was quite the feat! My dad was in town, so I didn't want to bug my mom with it. My oldest neice was going out of town, and there was a school dance that most of the girls were already going to.  Plus it was ward temple night, so to say that babysitters were scarce is an understatement!!  We ended up with a plan that included 4 babysitters in less than 24 hours. :) 

But it all worked out and Josh and I were able to go.  We got stuck in rush hour traffic, but finally made it to the Lodges at Deer Valley, with dinner at the Brass Tag.  The food was amazing, and we totally crashed after dinner.  I think we both needed a good night's rest!!

It is H-O-T outside!!  With temps in the 100s all weekend long, the kids just wanted to go out and play in the sprinklers.  Until they got out there and it was even too hot for sprinklers!  They lasted long enough to enjoy a popsicle, but then it was back inside into the air conditioned house!

For some reason, Abbi has really been into pranks lately.  She'll watch pranking videos on or on YouTube, and just wants to play pranks all day.  Since most of the pranks consist of things that are way too messy - like putting flour in the blow dryer or plastic wrap on the toilet - and mom says no to all of those, she decided to find her own way to prank.  So she got all dressed up and hid in her room until Easton came in where she jumped out and scared him. Everyone got a good laugh, including mom and dad since she managed to shimmy her way into an 18-month old costume.  Oh, how this girl makes us laugh!!

Sometimes it's about the simple things in life - like top your own pizza night. :)

One thing is for sure - Abbi sure does love being in the spotlight.  She is constantly wanting her picture taken or a video taken of her.  I hope she always keeps that fearlessness!

This kid loves hats.  But he doesn't really have any of his own that still fit, so he wears some old adult sized ones at home all the time.  Walking through Target today, he saw this hat and had to have it.  And look at him - how could I resist??
