Chad's Birthday

Last Thursday was Chad's Birthday! We started the morning off with fresh cinnamon rolls. The girls had each written him their own cards. Well I wrote them they told me what they wanted to say.

When Chad headed to work we got to work too getting the house ready. The girls helped me decorate the house with lots of balloons and they colored a banner...


You will have to ignore the black blurr in all of our pictures. Sadly our camera is dying.

The girls helped me make Daddy's favorite...pumpkin pie...


When Dad got home we surprised him by spraying him with silly string as he came in the door. I tried to video tape it but I didn't realize the girls moved the camera so you can only see half of it.

He had to find the secret message we wrote on the balloons. "We Love you the Most" and sang Happy Birthday to him of course...


We were going to have him pop all of the balloons with his blowgun...


But when we brought the cardboard outside with the balloons it was so windy they blew everywhere so he just popped a few of them.

Labor Day on the Mountain

Yesterday  we headed up to Mt Lemon with the girls. They were very excited. Sophie was not a fan of the drive though she kept asking us why it was taking ALL day to get to the mountains. But once we got up there we had fun! We started with a picnic...



The girls were in heaven being outside and loved looking for the perfect pine cone....



Then we went for a hike. They thought it was so cool to drink out of Daddy's hiking backpack...


We wanted to hike down to rose canyon lake but didn't realize how far it was. The road just kept going so we decided to stop at the next best thing. A tiny creek that the girls could throw rocks in...


It was a fun day in the outdoors. Somehow Sophie started asking about bears and what they ate then she decided it was time to go before it found us. Silly girl she would get really concerned every time we stopped. "We need to go before the bear finds us." I am happy to say that the bear never did.
