While my mom and sister were on their cruise Halie and Kaden came down to stay with us. They were here for Owen and Sadie's actual birthdays so we did some things to celebrate with them.
On Owen's birthday I had to take my mom and Shaina to the airport in the morning and Rick had to work that afternoon so we hung out at my parents house till Rick left and then we headed back home. A couple days later we had a picnic at the school park for Owen's birthday. On Sadie's birthday we went to mcdonalds for lunch because the dentist gave the kids a free hamburger and ice cream cone coupon and they played on the play place for a while. After that we went to baskin robins for their free birthday scoops. Next we headed up the canyon to bridalveil falls to feed the fish and play in the water. They had a lot of fun up there. It started raining on us a little but thanks to my mom always having umbrellas in the car we stayed pretty dry. After that we went to red robin for dinner to get their free birthday meals. They had a lot of fun there too. Behind us and above our heads there was a train that went around and around and every time it came in sight the kids (mainly Sadie) got so excited and wanted everyone to look.
Here are some pictures from when Halie and Kaden were down.
Just a heads up. I posted this from my phone and I don't know why but some of the pictures ended up sideways. Sorry. They also aren't the best quality.

My attempt at getting Kaden in the pic. There are deer in the background.

We scared the deer away

Free Ice Cream!!!

Looking at the train
I had to be sneaky to get these pictures with Kaden in them. ;)

I can't get over how cute my daughter is! She was doing the cutest things on the tramp!


  1. You do such a good job of posting, what a good mommy you are. Thank you so much for taking Halie and Kaden while I was gone. It looks like they had a great time with you!
    I love all the pictures!

  2. I think it's awesome that you found so many free things for your kids to enjoy on their birthdays.

  3. Thanks and you're welcome, Mom!

    Katie, It's actually because I found a pin on pinterest that was a long list of free birthday promotions. The catch is you have to be on their emailing list. It's great though! I loved all the free stuff even though I have to go through and delete a couple junk emails every once in a while.
