Wahoo. . .She's 3!

Lauren turned 3 today! She had a fun day helping mom make her cake. . .a princess barbie cake with a purple dress (one of her favorite colors!). We even got cheese pizza for dinner and mint ice cream (2 of her requests). She had a fun birthday party with her family and loved playing with her cousins. She got some neat princess toys, dishes, and jewelry, a few pairs of shoes (one of her favorite things, she ALWAYS want shoes on!), she got a dress up snow white dress the other day too and has been wearing it everyday since, a barbie baby doctor, finger paints, and a mini princess CD player. All in all it was a fun success. The kids were wiped out and fell asleep only after watching Lauren's new princess nightlight for about 10 minutes. . .super TIRED!

We had fun celebrating the 4th of July with a BBQ at Papa Greg's and Grandma Jenny' followed by a neat fire work show. The kids had fun. Brady helped get Papa the fireworks to light, but was so excited about that he missed watching some of them because he was too busy picking the next one out! Brock, Brady and I also went to out neighborhood breakfast for the first time. Brady walked (yes waled) his bike in the parade, but had a lot of fun.
We spent a couple evenings with Grandma Venita and family eating dinner and just spending time together (everyone was there but Elaina and family). I even got to eat a yummy breakfast at Ruth's with Allison, Curt (and my mom) before they left for a new adventure in Switzerland.

Because Lauren's ANC was so good, we decided to head to the Dino museum this past week (Brock has been wanting to go FOREVER!). It was fun to go on a little family outing together. The kids had fun, but were done after a few hours.
