Today we met up with Megh, Ellie, & Cam for a trip to the zoo. We all had a fun day. The girls may have had more fun just running around on the grass than they did checking out animals. As long as they had fun I guess. :)
Hooray for four year old princesses! Brighton turned 4 yesterday and I have to say that she is just the greatest kid in the world. She has the biggest heart and is such a little mother. She loves to help and always wants to make sure everyone else is taken care of. She is so excited to be a big sister and I have no doubt that she will be a great one. She kisses my belly every day and lets us know all the things the baby is saying. Apparently, we have a we have a pretty clever little person on the way. Brighton loves to be funny. She is one silly girl and makes us laugh everyday. She loves to dance and twirl and sing. She dresses up in some form everyday. Ariel is her very favorite right now, thus the Ariel themed princess party... We had 12 little princesses over at our house for an afternoon full of princess fun. There was dancing, crown & bracelet making, magic wand finding in the back yard, playing princess games, eating princess cupcakes, and opening princess presents. It was a little crazy with so many little people, but they all seemed to have a great time and Brighton stated that "this was the best princess party ever!" so it was well worth the chaos. On her actual birthday, we had breakfast with Lex and dinner with Bren, Megh, Ellie, and Cam. Again, I have to say that we sure love finally having family close by! Bri got a new barbie bike that was a big hit and she had a great 4th birthday. Brighton is pretty excited about her new age. She has been telling everyone that will listen that she is not three anymore, but is now 4!!! Oh so exciting.
We love you so much Brighton Lily! You bring so much joy and sparkle into our family and we are the luckiest parents in the world to have you. Happy Birthday Princess!
We had a great Easter this year. Brighton woke us up nice and early and the search began for her basket. She was so excited when she found it hiding behind the couch. she said, "that Easter Bunny is such a tricky hider!" Then it was time to find all of the candy filled eggs around the house. Oh the fun. Lex and Nate came over for breakfast and we had fun hanging out with them for awhile. Then Bren, Megh, and family came over and spent the rest of the day. Bren and Megh did most of the cooking and everything was delightful, especially Megh's carrot cake! It was the best we've ever had. Yumm! Don re-hid the eggs a bunch of times and Bri and Ellie had a blast finding them again and again. We've been by ourselves for Easter since we moved to Oregon and it was so nice to have family around! Happy Easter everyone!
