Jon's 31st Birthday

Jon on the phone getting birthday wishes form all of you.

Jon had a dinosaur themed birthday party - Marcus wanted to do another pinata and the dinosaur was the most grown-up pinata the store had!

This being their 2nd pinata Addison and Ally were not so scared to try knocking out the candy!

Earlier that week Marucs, Jon & Seth had destroyed the transformer/lion pinata. I really think Jon was just letting out some aggression... It wasn't the best actual birthday day. But we made up for it...

...for the 1st time in 7 years I got the right kind of ice cream cake!!! Don't ask me what it is, I have forgotten already... Good thing I have great friends who keep up on that for me! (Thanks to Chad & Amy and Tim & Kim for all the text's and messages about the kind of ice cream Jon likes!) wait... world class chocolate!?! Is that right?
Happy Birthday Jon!

Seth's 2nd Birthday Party

Happy Birthday Seth!
No cake - we had mini cupcakes, they were the perfect size.

I transformed the transformer pinata into a Lion pinata form Madagascar. The kids had a great time hitting it and grabbing all the candy.

This video might need to go to funniest home videos!

Thank you to all our friends for the fun presents.

Trip To Palm Springs

We drove down to Palm Springs to return my mom's minivan that she let us borrow for a few months. The boys did really well on the drive - no one threw-up - and we got to stop in Las Vegas at Aunt Jody's house to see here family and dogs. Marcus had to take pictures of Chole their dog.

As soon as we got to Palm Springs Grandma and Grandpa took us to our favorite restaurant for Jon's Birthday celebration, Kobe's. Marcus and Seth got to come along too. Marcus had been before when he was about 2 months old and they was Seth's first time. They were thoroughly entertained by the man in the funny hat making fire in front of us. Of course when that stopped Seth was ready to go! And FYI - this is the only restaurant where I can eat a California roll.

After dinner we went home and sang Happy Birthday to Jon and Seth . Erin had a friend at work who is a pastry chef make this chocolate chocolate cake for Jon. It was very yummy. It was flavored with fresh blueberries in the frosting which was nice and light compared to the chocolate. Needless to say most of the cake was gone by the time we left...

The most important reason we went down to California: My cousin Jessica's Wedding.

Her dad brought her to the aisle on a golf cart.

She looked beautiful, it was a beautiful wedding and reception.
Congratulations Jessica and Landon!

And we cannot forget the train track that Grandpa Lake built for Marcus and Seth. They had been in storage for years and it was a bit of a trick trying to get it together but Grandpa did and the boys and a great time playing with it.
