It's time for the annual trip back home in May!
On the calendar:
Get my hair done. ASAP.
Lindsay Loo's birthday!
Time with Nan and the boys!
Seeing just how big Ryker's gotten!
My brother's birthday!
I love looking at how crazy the lake looks from way up here.
Lindsay loo and I went for burgers at our favorite, Red Robin!
Hi bun bun!
I brought some pink hair chalk for Lindsay cause she said she wanted pink hair, but she wouldn't let me do it. So Mal and I had some fun with Iris.
Baking, baking baking! I made a cake and cupcakes for Lindsay loo's birthday. And I made cupcakes for Nick's birthday.
Lindsay "helped" by taking a copious amount of selfies....
Then we gave this teeny baby duckling a bath.
Someone brought some baby ducks into her work, so Maloree brought one home. Isn't it cute???
When it gets old enough, there is a refuge that will take him.
So I uh, decided that I wanted to get some of those amazing big round balloons for the party. I ordered them online, and then took them to Smith's Marketplace to get blown up.
They were less than helpful, and totally confused at to how they were going to do it. I finally got them done, but all 4 balloons were kinda big...
...and walking around the store with them was a teensy bit embarrassing. Also, I realized that they were so not gonna fit in the car. So I had to call my mom to come down to help me. Help me transport balloons.
Lindsay turned 29! OMG where has time gone? I feel old!
She wanted to be a "queen" for her birthday. So I made her glittery wands, a birthday banner, a felt crown with jewels....
(I don't spoil her, do I?)
Here is her cake. She requested yellow cake with raspberry filling and cream cheese frosting. I made the castle with my silhouette machine.
Chocolate cupcakes with Salted caramel buttercream.
I love this boy. He had so much fun playing with his cars.
And this one, always trying to steal my glasses.
These two are so amazing together. Ryker may be tough- but when it comes to Lindsay and kids, he's a total softie.
I was missing my husband so I took a selfie to send to him. And I feel great because I got my hair did.
My brother. So silly with that huge dog!
Oh yeah, sewing and a cold Dr Pepper.
My mom was making some bibs, so I decided to make some too!
Can you even stand this? Van is looking like such a teenager here. We went to the mall for corndogs and lemonade, one of my favorites!
Also while I was there Nan, the boys and I went to the This is The Place Monument Park. They have a whole village and train ride now, it's the new hot spot for kids!
Van in one of the tiny houses.
Pretty excited about riding on this horse.
Aw, baby goats.
Hanging out on the pirate ship.
Me and Henry on the train.
These two are such sweet brothers. We had lunch at the Hires burger spot. Mmmmm!
Even though I love the city, I appreciate the wide open spaces.
Love you Henry boy!
Look how much bigger the duckling got!
Ryker looooooves me. We chase each other around the house!
I made Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter mousse and chocolate ganache for my brother's birthday.
Aw, good old 9th and 9th. I used to live right down the street. Taking a stroll around was fun, but I miss the way it used to be. Coffee Garden in it's modern techy-ness kinda bugs me. I miss the couches and squashy armchairs.
Lindsay loo and I checked out the new shopping center in Farmington just in time to see this...
...one thing I super miss about Utah is the sunsets. Oh, they are incredible.
