My 26th Birthday!!!!

Tuesday August 25th was my 26th Birthday. I don't like working on my birthday so I took the day off. It was nice to sleep in and then I went and got my oil change because I'm headed up to Idaho this weekend and needed to get it done before my trip. My wonderful boyfriend Rich took a half day so that we could play. We were going to go to Park City and go down some alpine slides and zip line but the morning turned out rainy and we didn't want to chance it so we ended up going to Heber to ride the Heber Valley Train.

A pic of us before we got on the Train.

The train went around the Deer Valley Reservoir. Here we are posing for a pic.

We were the last ones off the Train so I had to be silly and Rich took a pic.

Before we got on the Train I noticed this machine that smashes your penny into a picture. I told Rich I kind of wanted to do that because I remember doing it when I was younger. So when we got off the Train he gave me the money so I could do it.

We still ended up going to Park City. We went up to the Olympic Park there and went through the museum. They had some fun stuff to play with. Here I am in a bobsled.

Rich doing the 3-D Downhill.

They had these fun games that you had to see how fast you could roll down your marble. I almost got the best score for the day. I did it in 1.9 secs and the best score was 1.7.

After Park City we went to Dinner at Ruth's Diner. It is a way neat place where you eat outside. The food is yummy and the atmosphere is awesome.

When I got into work today some of the girls had decorated my cubicle. Good thing I carry my camera where ever I go so I could take a pic.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I had a great day!!!

"Gotcha Day"

Today was a special day for our family, especially for Summer and Bill. We went down to the Salt Lake City Courthouse and finalized the adoption for Lilly. What an amazing experience. I think we all shed some tears in the courtroom. Here is a pic of Summer, Bill, and Lilly outside the courtroom.

The judge was so nice and let them take a picture with him. He only had one condition and that was he had to hold Lilly. Sorry Summer this is the best pic I have of your guys and your eyes were close. Don't hate me for posting it :)

Picture with Grandma and Grandpa in the courtroom. We have trouble keeping our eyes open I guess!!

Picture with the Aunts. Nettie, me, and Bill's sister Julia.

After finalizing the adoption we had to go celebrate. We went and had breakfast at Ruth's Diner up Immigration Canyon. It was a really yummy place to go eat at. I want to go back sometime. Below is a pic of Mom, Dad, and Nettie.

Summer didn't really have breakfast she ended up getting a BLT. There was a pickle on her plate and we decided to see if Lilly liked pickles. Summer hates pickles and was like I hope she hates them and Bill was like I hope she likes them. Lets see who won . . .

Lilly loves pickles!!! She didn't pull a funny face at all. In fact she didn't want us to take it away from her. It was sooo cute. I guess she is going to eat everything just like her Dad!!!
Nettie and I are so glad we took the day off so we could be part of the experience. It was just a wonderful day. We are so glad Lilly is ours for good. She brings so much joy into our family. Can't wait for next weekend when she gets blessed and sealed to Summer and Bill!!!
