Birthday Surprise

THANK YOU John, Anna and Jaret. I was surprised with the best birthday trip. All I was told (an hour before leaving) was to pack for cold for the girls and I and the rest was taken care of. We drove out to Dillon Beach, after driving around for a while we pulled up to the camp area where the Paulsons had set everything up. Anna had gotten us Red Robins mud pie which is one of my favorite things ever, and made her AWESOME cheese fondue recipe for dinner. We did all the usual camping stuff, the girls were awesome and slept great. We spent a lot of time on the beach and Payten couldn't have been more in heaven. It was raining on the drive out so we were a little scared but as soon as we pulled in we passed the rain and it was 60 degrees, and didn't even get cold at night. I had so much fun, thank you guys!

Remember when...

It was always so fun when you were a kid because you got to do so many random cool things. Example, peanut butter and birdseed bird feeders. Well as Payten is getting older I'm realizing that i get to be a kid again and do all those random fun things :) we found this pine cone at the park with Grandma Mills today and had a blast making it into the feeder....of course we ate about as much peanut butter as went on the feeder, but it was fun.

First day of school

Well on the 9th Payten had her first day of "school" :) she loves that she gets to go to preschool. She was all excited to wear her new outfit that Nana Spadafora got her, ate breakfast on the way and was like see ya mom the second we got there. Soooo big!

Time Out

Finding our true laughs

Ok so before I get any more hate mail about how long it's taken to update my blog, I'll start back with what I've neglected to post. Time out for Women was back on the 5th and 6th. I had so much fun, we all went up friday to shop all day and be goofy gitty girls with NO kids for the day, it was soooo relaxing and fun. (maybe would have been a tiny bit more relaxing if I'd gotten more then 3 hours sleep the night before, I don't know why but my girls ALWAYS seem to get sick the night before a big trip) Anyways it really was a blast. Saturday we went to the conference and the speakers were SO good, I loved every speaker. After that none of us felt quite ready to get home so we did some more shopping and dinner. I deffinately missed the girls but it was so nice to go in and out anywhere without 10 minutes to get in and out of the car every stop!
