Steph turns 38

Having a birthday during quarantine was just my cup of tea. I don't care to do anything with anyone other than my little family anyway, and I'm totally fine getting food to go so I was happy as a clam.

Brandon and the kids brought me breakfast in bed of course.

I had ordered a new diamond art kit for myself like a month previous and it just happened to show up in the mail the day before my birthday which was pretty perfect timing. It felt like I actually got a birthday gift. :)

Brandon kept asking me what I wanted for lunch and dinner. It's usually pretty hard for me to decide but I am so happy with my choices! I didn't want anything too heavy for lunch so I decided to go with my all time favorite pretzels from DQ. So delicious!

Right after lunch my parents came to visit me and stayed and chatted for about an hour which was really fun.

Then I left and went to meet up with my friends at the church parking lot and we stayed and chatted for almost two hours. I left Jackson home with the kids and Brandon helped out babysitting him as well. So nice!

For dinner we went and got Mobettah's to go and it was heavenly. So dang good.

Then that evening we ate some of the yummy treats my friend gave me and watched Ready Player One for the second time that week. Ha ha. It was such a fabulous day. Best part about it was that I decided to cancel school so I didn't have to deal with homeschooling the kids. It was great!

Happy baby on the swing!

So we went on a family bike ride to the park and Ava was so whiny and kept begging to go home and then finally on the way home I looked back and saw that she had fallen asleep on Jackson's shoulder. It was just about the cutest thing I've ever seen.

The kids are so big now and Ava is involved in sleepovers so we have to pull in two mattresses. A queen and a twin. This was a sleepover in Mom and Dad's room. Pretty much every Friday and Saturday night the kids have a sleepover somewhere in the house.

I wanted to go drive up Squaw Peak to show the kids the view so we ended up doing that on Saturday after my birthday (which was on Thursday). The drive up made me a little carsick and I was wondering if it was worth it but once we got up there we were able to watch some para gliders taking off which was so incredible! The view was amazing. It was fun to try to find our house and the temples and anything else we recognized. Brandon and I drove up squaw peak to see the fall leaves seriously like 12 years ago and this is the first time we've been back since. The kids loved it!
