4th of July

 For the 4th of July Griff and I both had the day off!!! Miracle!!
In the morning my Grandparents ward always does a breakfast at the their ward house, so we headed over there to enjoy some yummy pancakes, hash browns, and eggs. We hung out and chatted for a bit then over to my moms for a nap.
I had to run to the store to get stuff to make my 4th of July treat for the BBQ.
I saw these cute sparkler treats on Pinterest!!
We headed over to my Uncles in laws house at Sugar House for our annual BBQ and fireworks. We have been going to Sugar House Park for so many years now. They do the best fireworks.
The food was fabulous and so were all the goodies. Everyone brings such a great dish!!
I love that all my family is there and that Blake's is getting to know her 2nd cousins. They love her!!

Blake and Jae loved their suckers!! That was Blake's first sucker, she loved it so much and was so mad when I took it away from her because she was rubbing it on the blanket haha!!!
We all headed to the front yard to lay out our blankets to watch the show!!!
Blakelee loved all the fireworks and would clap with everyone. Surprisingly they did not scare her.
Such a fun night with the family!!
Love summer..
..sun shine..
spending it all with my cute little family!!

My 25th Birthday!!

June 30th my mom had the grandparents and my sister over to celebrate my Birthday and have some Chicken Enchiladas for dinner. It was such a fun day!!!
My mom gave me some make up, Cotton Candy, running clothes, and a scrapbook book.
My grandparents gave me money!! :D

For dessert we had Ice Cream Cones! Delish.
It was such a hot summer day that my dad turned on the sprinklers for the girls!!
They had a blast. I love watching these two giggle!!!
My mom got a shellac kit so us girls all did our nails for the 4th of July!!
Blake's slept through most of the day. She had just woken up and was super tired still and would not smile.
For my Birthday on July 1st I had to work the morning shift, while I was at work these flowers came for me from my cute hubby!!!
After we both got off work we got ready so we could head downtown to City Creek.
We headed to my parents house to drop Blake's off so we could have a date night.
We started to head downtown but it took us a good 30 mins just to get to the Murray exist so we decided to go to Fashion Place Mall instead. All I wanted for my birthday was clothes and jewelry!!
We hit the shops and did some damage!!
Then went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner and Dessert.
It was so Yummy!!!
What a great Birthday with this great guy!!! I have spent 9 of my birthdays with him, I love knowing that he is there to make my day special!!!
