Austin Turns 6

Austin is just getting so big so fast!  He has been looking forward to his birthday for months so we was so excited to have it finally come.   With a new baby and a very sleep deprived mom, we opted for a family party this year.  We went to Chuck-E-Cheese.  Austin LOVED it and had such a fun time.  At the end of the day he said that was the best day ever (yay!).

He kept saying things all day like "I'm stronger now that I'm 6." So he felt like he should be able to spread his own sprinkles on his cake... good job dude!

Austin is such a great older brother. He is so very helpful and if he sees a need he is the first one just jump up and help.  He still loves to play with cars and trucks and also loves building with legos. He will be starting 1st grade this fall!

4th of July

Provo puts on a great Freedom Festival for the 4th of July.  So I voluntarily woke my kids up at 5:30 in the morning on a holiday so we could drive down to Provo to catch the all the hot air balloons as they were being filled.  It was so cool!  So glad we did it!  The kids thought it was it was pretty awesome. 

This year we got together at my grandparents house for the 4th.  My mom was in town as well as two of my sisters and a few cousins.  The Allens put on a great BBQ dinner and grandpa put on quite an awesome display of fireworks! It really was such a great family get together!
