Brinley's Field Trip to the Zoo

Brinley was so excited for her zoo field trip. She wanted me to come with so I volunteered for this one! We had a group of three and she was with her two friends Eternity and Kylie. We had such a great time. They loved the giraffes, and especially the baby elephant. I really think their favorite things to do were of course the bus ride, the train ride and they loved the carousel. We had a fun day and luckily missed the rain. As soon as we got to the bus to go home it started to pour!

Happy Birthday Brinley 6yrs old!

Brinley has been on the count down for her birthday for the past 2 months. She was so excited for it to finally get here! She loves Alvin and the Chipmunks the squeakual so much that we decided to do a Chipette Birthday party for her. I decided to try and make her birthday cake and hope for the best. I think it turned out pretty cute. She was really excited with it. We invited 10 of her friends to her party! It was a little crazy but it was so much fun. We played freeze dance, music walk and Sadie taught them the I'm a single lady dance the chipettes do in the movie. The kids were loving it. After opening presents and eating pizza for dinner we turned on Avin and the chipmunks the squeakual and let them watch. It was such a fun night. I think Brin was on overload!! She was also excited to take the birthday bag to school. She got to put in some of her favorite things. She was very excited to put in her new american girl doll that she got for her birthday.
Brin is so full of life she is always making us laugh and putting a smile on our faces. She is turning in to such a fun girl. We sometimes laugh about where she came from because she is so different than me and Eric!! She is not shy and tells you exactly what she thinks! She loves school, dance and playing with friends. We love Brin so much and are glad she had a fun birthday.

BYU Women's Conference

Last week I was able to go to Women's Conference down at BYU with my sister's and mom. We had such a great time together and it was so uplifting hearing the different speakers. I hope I can take the advice I learned and apply it in my own life as a mother and wife. It was so fun being with my sisters and mom. I think this will be a new tradition each year!
Brinley had her dance recital that she has been working on for a few months. She was so excited for the day to finally come. She has so much fun with her cousin Bridgett. It has been fun having them in the same dance class. Brinley was not scared at all and practiced smiling all day. It was really fun watching her up on stage loving every minute of it. She loved getting a rose at the end of the show!
