Fish Lake and Birthday

Okay, so, Tuesday I started baby sitting Heber while my sister, Julie, goes back to work. He's been really great, but now that I have "three" kids in the day I'm super busy. I've been working on this post for a few days now. I know it's lots of pictures, but really, they're the best!

So, Monday afternoon we got back from our Halladay Family Vacation. It was really fun. We spent three nights at Fish Lake in a cabin. (WAY better than a tent I might add!) Everybody was there. Mom and Dad, five daughters, two sons-in-law, one future son-in-law and three grandkids!

We had lots of fun fishing, going on walks, watching movies, playing games, and just hanging out. We made it with hardly any fights. We had lots of good food too! I love food.

Jordyn had her birthday on Sunday and she is now TWO! Oh, they grow way to fast. Pretty much the entire weekend ended up being her "happy day" and she was constantly telling people to sing to her. She also went fishing for the first time on Grandpa's boat. I think she had a great time...Grandpa even let her drive.

"Patty Cake. Patty Cake."

Happy Birthday Jordyn! Make a wish!

Okay, let me explain! One of the games we played was "Pin the princess in the window" The bum belongs to my brother-in-law Jesse and the blind man is my Dad. After we spun him around this is the direction we pointed him. Mean I know, but SO FUNNY!
Opening presents.

And playing with presents.
Showing off her new clothes. Elmo jammies. Super cute!
Leslie and Josh gave Jordyn this huge potato head with little ones on the inside.
Super cool! Jordyn loves to play with them.

FIRST FISHING TRIP!
Helping Dad put out the line.
Reeling it in.
Taking the hook out.
Then we let them go. He was too little.
Besides, Jordyn named him "Nemo" and I don't think she would appreciate if we ate him. Catching a fish with Grandpa.
And then giving him a kiss.

SO CUTE!

Okay, so that's all. Fun right! We had a great time. Hopefully we'll always be able to get together as a family. I love my family and I appreciate all they do for Jason and I and especially all they do for the girls.

Looks live the party was a blast. I especially love the potato heads (as I collect them, I tend to be partial!). It was great to see you at the wedding. I know those days are the LONGEST, but at least we got to say hi!

First of all, that potato head is awesome! It makes the one I bought on clearance today look really pathetic.

And Tessa's hair is so amazing! She already has cute stylable hair. You are so lucky!
