Belle's Birthday Party

Belle's birthday is not until Friday but we had her party last weekend since we're moving this weekend :(
She wanted a gymnastics party so we reserved a gym.  
They played games, did gymnastics of course, and danced.
The birthday girl does not like cake but she LOVES donuts so that's what she wanted for her birthday party.

Belle's best friend Blair.  They are two peas in a pod.  They are on the gymnastics team together and played volleyball together too.  We are so sad to have to separate these two cute friends.
Cute Maty, love this girl too!
She had to have a dance circle.
Doing the Harlem Shake
Getting Silly (or staying silly)

Party Favors. I wrote their names on their water bottles.
Work it girl!
Great group of friends.  We will miss them all so much!  I'm already praying she can have as good of friends in Utah as she's had here in Texas.

Benjamin turns 8!

Unless you know what Minecraft is, you will not understand the decorations and theme of Benjamin's birthday.  It's a video game with building blocks.  

 The big green box is called a "Creeper".  Inside was a green RC Lamborghini, Ben's dream car.


 The plates are like the building blocks in the game and they make up a Creeper face.
 The snacks are all items found in the game.

 Potion of Healing and Creeper Juice
This box head is from a character in the game.  They are playing pin the tail on the pig (from the game).



Everyone made their own Minecraft mask and creeper bag to take home party favors.
 Creeper Cake. I know it's ugly but it's what he wanted. 

 After games, presents, and cake, everyone went outside to swim.  Benjamin was very happy and had a great time at his party.
  

Clara's Ballet Recital


Clara has consistently loved ballet.  This is the end of her third year.  They make us put lots of make up on them.  She did great in her Swan Lake recital and loved her dress.

Danny's Birthday!

After our trip to Utah we flew home to make sure to see Danny on his birthday, July 5th.



My Superfan is pretty easy to shop for.  I just hit the Red Zone.

Trip to Utah in July

The kids and I went to Utah over the 4th of July. We spent a day at his family's cabin. Lots of fun family memories have taken place here and continue to do so.

Fun cousin games.
Homemade Bridge

Lisa planned a service activity putting together hygiene kits.  The kids bought them and made them themselves.


The Swing!

Bubbles

My cute nephew Ryan helped me take some pictures of bubbles.  He'd tell me how to compose the picture and then blow the bubbles for me.  Then he'd look at the picture and say how awesome it was.
I thought this was a cool picture of a bubble.

On the fourth of July we spent some time at Danny's parents.  The grandparents had pogo sticks and stilts for the kids to play.
The kids love their cousins!
Some table game fun.  Thanks Anne and Aunt Lisa for teaching us!
We watched fireworks with both Grandma's in Riverton. It was the longest show I've ever seen!
A few days later we had to stop by there favorite park before we left.
