Dad's 60th Birthday Surprise Party!
|Happy 60th Pa! We love you! Dad had no idea! We had dinner with friends and family and Ed made a wonderful video for dad with pictures of his life up to this point. Made Dad cry. ;)|
|Nothin' but cute on her first flight to CA with Mom for a hair-doing trip. :)|
July 14- Hair, Hair, Hair all day! Worked 8am-6pm Friday and Saturday. Did 22 clients this trip.
Some of the hair transformations. I LOVE traveling back to CA to do hair. I didn't realize how much I've missed it until this trip. It's like therapy! :) Service, creative outlet, girl time, friend time...I just miss it!
|Love my Kaylynn time.|
|Got together with some girls at Dish Dash for dinner. Tired little Madison came along and got held by many.|
|Kaylynn, Meghan, Molly, Lindsay, Me, Jessica, Kim and Elaine- missed everyone else!|
|Frozen yogurt. My favorite and a MUST with these girls. It feels like I never left. So comfortable with these amazing women. Miss you all! Glad I still get to see you!|
|Back home, Kai got to go to the zoo with Daddy while Sarah had a fun day and sleepover with Grandma Johnson.|
Went to the Sunnyvale ward and saw old friends, stopped by my old neighborhood and said hello to neighbors and then later ended the evening with Rebecca. Sweetest girl.
|Always good food (and of course dessert) to be had with Rebecca. ;)|
I LOVE running in CA. Such beautiful surroundings.
|Sweet Elaine who let me invade her space and do hair in her kitchen for days! She slept me, fed me, gave me rides, etc. So hospitable. Thanks Elaine!|
The flight home Madison was a dream and slept in my arms until we got our bags. Nice to get a break, but so good to see the kids when I got home. They always seem so much older to me after a couple days.
Possibly the cutest thing ever! STILL can't get enough!
|FHE- Build-A-Bear Birthday gifts. Sarah got a Rapunzel bunny and Kai got a Buzz doggy.|
|Coloring the bear boxes as an activity.|
Expo with Steph. Days of '47 floats

Face painting was the highlight.
|Hand in mouth- new thing. Pretty constant. :)|
^Sarah wakes up with hair like this. Lucky girl. I think it's cute.
|One of our "What's cookin' Wednesday" activities- Make a milkshake. Mmm|
|I am festive! Likely cheesy, but we wore patriotic outfits for the 4th and 24th. Ed changed already. Love USA! Yay red, white and blue!|
|Alphabet letter made out of playdo activity.|
|Smoke bombs with dad|

Madison tried to attempt a rollover on the 22nd, but conquered a few days later. Caught it! Big Girl! Growin' too quick!
The kids are loving holding Madison these days.
|I have an awesome neighborhood. Still getting to know everyone, but they had a great neighborhood party. Fun to socialize and make new friends. I'm needing that.|
Family Bike Ride FHE.
|A day at the Hogle Zoo with Jenn. I haven't been here for about 10 years!|
