Brecklynn's FINAL birthday :)

My parents came up this past weekend to celebrate one more birthday for Brecklynn. My parents went back East with my sisters over Brecklynn's birthday so this was the first free weekend we were able to celebrate it. Its been really confusing for Ridge with Brecklynn getting 4 cakes and several birthdays.

My parents, my sisters Chelsie, Kayla and Jarica all came up early that morning to spend the day with us. Chelsie got Brecklynn a ball toy that she absolutely loves. Its cute watching her play with it. She puts her face on the hole where the balls come up and gets hit right in the face and then returns to the same place to have the ball hit her all over again. My mom got her some cute clothes and some stackable cups. Perfect for this little girl. We then went to Casa for lunch which was so fun. We then sang happy birthday to her and she had a cookie and cake balls. It was so fun having my family up for the day. I wish we could do that more often.

Family Day

We decided to take a family day up to the mountains before school got started. It was a last minute decision, but so much fun. It was the first time we went alone and though there wasn't much to do, it was still a lot of fun. We enjoyed a picnic and I took Cambree and Ridge for an 'adventure' which was so cute. Then we played a family game of frisbee which was suprisingly fun despite the age of the kids. After it started to get hot, we decided to head back but stopped to play in the creek for a bit. The kids LOVED it. Even though it was freezing water, they all got soaking wet. It was a lot of fun and I hope we can do it more despite the busy year ahead of us. It was a nice 'time out' for the family!!

This next picture is a bit out of focus, but I LOVE it. I love what it captured.
