Happy Birthday, Sandy!

We celebrated Sandy’s 5th birthday with our traditional birthday pancakes:_2013-06-24 07.42.35


Grandma & Grandpa Buhler joined us for birthday cupcakes another night:



Sandy has been begging for an umbrella. In fact, she bought one with her birthday money last year. We bought it on Amazon but it wasn’t well made at all. So, what she wanted to do with her birthday money this year was buy an umbrella. And I was very reluctant…until I thought of going to DI.

Both of the girls got an umbrella for $2 each. They were thrilled. I was thrilled that even if they break it was only $2 wasted. These umbrellas look well made, though, I think they’ll last.

The Princess Festival

Today we went to the Princess Festival at Thanksgiving Point.



The girls had a blast meeting the princesses:



When we checked in, each girl got a special princess story book that had autograph pages in the back for them to collect princess signatures:



Since we went in lieu of a birthday party for Sandy, we brought along a couple of her friends:



We watched a couple of shows and went on some quests with the princesses.


We took a carriage ride:

I’m finally getting around to cleaning the pictures off the camera and my phone so I can update this blog. Here’s a few pictures from earlier in June:


We went to a summer kickoff party at the library. Some police officers were there letting the kids climb on their motorcycles:

Our Stake had a Family Fun Day. The girls got their faces painted like kitties:

The girls are taking a dance class. The dance class was Abby’s motivation to become potty trained.

We got the Pass of all Passes this year and have had a blast trying out different things. We went to Planet Play the other day, though, and Abby got clocked in the head with a miniature golf club:

Apparently the mess phase still isn’t over at our house:

Abby got into the vaseline, when I found her she said, “Sorry I made a mess, mommy.” As I tried to talk to her about being a big girl now and not making any more messes, she said, “Okay, mommy. When I’m 4, I won’t make any more messes.”
