Pumpkin Patch

Brynlee and I got to go out for an afternoon w/ our best friends to a pumpkin patch. Brynlee was a trooper to sit on all the hard pumpkins and hay so we could take pictures :)
 McKae, Adalynn, and Brynlee sure do love to be together, and we are so happy they have each other to "play with!"
 It was lots of fun to go out with Kait and Audge, and it's even more fun to all have baby girls together who we can watch grow up and go through their first year of life together. We will be so sad when everyone is done with school and parts their separate ways. If we had it our way, they would stay right by us no matter where we go! I couldn't ask for better friends :)

Happy Birthday to Me

This year my birthday was soooo different from last year. Brynlee was still a part of it, but in a very different way. Last year I was only about 7 weeks pregnant, and all I wanted to do was lay on the couch and sleep. I couldn't even make myself excited to open presents. Rob had to wake me up and make me sit up to open them. This year was a big improvement.

This is what I woke up to in the morning... do I really need to go on to say it was a great day? I think this little face answers that all by herself :)
 It was such a great day! Rob is the best husband in the world. He always goes out of his way to make sure my birthday is as good as it can possibly be. This was the first year I got to share my birthday with Brynlee too :) She was extra good for me all day which was the best present she could have given me.

That night after Rob got home, we took Brynlee over to a friends house to hang out for the night while we went out on a date! Woo hoo! Kid free. Love her to death, but I sure do celebrate when we get to go on dates these days. They are few and far inbetween.

Rob made a little "scavenger hunt" for me. The clues were very funny and creative. We went to the creamery for ice cream, to the park to play frisbee, and then to Tucano's for dinner. Yuuuummmy! It was so great! We then went to pick up Brynlee from playing with her friend, McKae, and watched a little of the BYU football game. After a little bit we headed home for some "cake" and presents.

I'm not a huge fan of cake, but I LOVE and CRAVE Marie Calendar's chocolate satin pie. Rob was a sweetheart and got it for me. Boy was it good! We even let Brynlee taste some whipped cream. She LOVED it! It was a wonderful birthday, and I have the best family in the world :)
