Happy Anniversary to me

Today was mine and Jeffs 17th wedding anniversary. Its hard to believe its already been 17 years! We went out and had a great dinner. When we came home, our kids surprized us with a cake they had baked. They had all the lights out and had 17 candles on the cake in the shape of a 17. Arent they sweet! Heres a bad picture of the cake.

Hope you all had a wonderful day!

Slice of Cake

I made this cake for the crop over at Simply Obsessed...Im trying to catch up on all the challenges. I made this with the tags, bags, and boxes cartridge for the cricut. The box opens and could hold a small gift or party favors. Wouldnt it be cute to make the whole cake and use it as a decoration at the party then send a slice home with each kid with party favors in it?
Hoping to do some more scrapping, so I may be back to share more later.
Thanks for stopping by.

After the tour of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple (see previous post below), we took the kids to Lagoon. We have season passes this year, and it has made it nice to go for just a few hours and then go home. Tyler really wanted to go on Rattlesnake Rapids. Since we have gone on it before, I knew how wet Id be when I got off. I was wearing a white shirt, so I opted not to go this time. We had a fun time.

Tyler was the only one who didnt move when the waterfall came up.

Hopefully I can scrap soon and Ill share some scrappy stuff with you.
Have a great day!

Oquirrh Mountain Temple Openhouse

Last Saturday we took the kids and went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Openhouse. The temple is beautiful inside. The tour was well organized. We watched a 12 minute video presentation in a tent, then we walked through the temple.

At the end of the tour they took us to another tent and had refreshments...the tent was nice, and decorated. The cookies were delicious.
We arrived late due to a traffic accident, but they still let us go through (You need to make a reservation to go through). Its free and anyone can go.
We went to Lagoon in next post (above).

End of School days

The last few days of school have been keeping me busy. I went on Tylers fieldtrip. We went to Antelope Island. My camera battery died so I didnt get many pictures on this day. This is some of the 4th graders that were there.

Then we had the 4th grade program. I tried to take pictures of the actual program, but I was too far away. I walked up to get this picture right before the program started.

Then today was Field Day at the Elementary School. I was in charge of the tug-o-war.

Only one and a half days left of school. The kids are excited. I will lose my peace and quiet, but Ill be happy to not have the homework and early mornings anymore :)
Have a great day!
