I want to be STRONG...not just physically but emotionally. I know
that working towards improving my body and mind will help me to create
happiness in my life and the life of my family. Don't they always
say....a happy mom makes a happy family!!
We had a wonderful time on Saturday spending the day at the LDS Temple over in Oakland. We had a primary activity where the kids got a tour and were able to go in the visitor's center and watch a little video. Ellie and Aeryn had a wonderful time. They were so good and we had a wonderful family outing. Travis and I both went as well!! Ellie was able to be with her little friends from church and they love being together! This is a picture of Ellie and her best friend Abby Richards in front of the temple. It was a gorgeous day and a lot warmer than we thought. I had the girls in sweaters and long sleeves, and they were dying of the heat !! This is just a cute picture of Aeryn outside the temple. It was fun to tell them about the day that Travis and I got married, right there at the Oakland temple. They saw a bride coming out of the temple while we were there and the girls were in awe. They loved watching her!! It was a wonderful day!
I am a little behind on the blogging. Ellie's birthday was on wednesday...the 6th of june...and we had a wonderful time celebrating. She had a wonderful pool party with our family and a few friends!! Ellie has been so excited to be 5 years old. She loves telling everyone how old she is!! She really had a wonderful time. She even wore her crown around for a little while! Aeryn had a wonderful time swimming with her dad. The girls both loved the water. Ellie got really brave and ventured to the deep end of Nana's pool (with her water wings on of course). Ellie blowing out the candles on her ice cream cake. I got this recipe from my friend Claire. It was sure a big hit. I don't know that I will ever make a regular cake again...these ice cream cakes were so yummy and such a big hit. All in all, it was a really a great day!!!
