Birthday and Anniversary

We have had quite an adventurous and fun week! Skye turned one on Sunday and Lance and I had our third anniversary on Monday. Since my whole family was together we decided to celebrate my brother's birthday and Father's Day along with Skye's birthday on Sunday. We had a lot of fun with everything we did! Here's Skye in her birthday dress. Doesn't she look so cute?!
She loved playing with her balloons. They made her so happy!

Here she is looking at all of her presents. She got so spoiled!
She had to peek through the pile of presents to see what the rest of us were doing.

Here's her first present, but she was more interested in playing with the bow on top.
She finally got the hang of tearing back the paper.
Adorable! She got this cute hat from her Aunt Millie. It looks so cute!
Opening presents with Grandma.

Daddy is showing her how to play the drums she got from him.
She learned pretty quickly!
Here's my brother, Nathan, and his wife, Camille. They came to celebrate.
It seemed like there would never be an end to opening all of her presents.
She had fun playing with this truck she got from my mom and dad.
Here's her birthday cupcake!
But by the time she got to it, she was almost too tired to care. I thought she might fall asleep right there!
But she finally dove in!

On Monday, we took Skye to the gardens at Thanksgiving Point. Here's a picture of our little family that started out with me and Lance three years ago from this day.

It was a big day for Skye. She really liked it there...
Especially when she could get out of her stroller and push it around!
Her favorite thing may have been the fish, though.
She really liked looking at them and would put her hand or foot through the rails as if she wanted to grab or pet one!
The pond was full of beautiful water lillies.After spending the night to ourselves, Lance and I had a fun time hiking in Adams Canyon (above Layton) Tuesday morning. It was really beautiful and peaceful. The only bad thing were the dozens of silk worms that were hanging from the trees. We finally turned back because there were so many of them. They were getting all over us! But other than that, we had a great time!
Here's my sexy husband!
On Wednesday, we went to Lance's mom's house to visit Lance's sister and her kids. We don't get to see them very often so it was great to spend some time with them. Here's Skye with my sister-in-law, Mindy!
She had a lot of fun playing with her cousins.
Here's my crazy, cute niece, Audrey!
And here's Orin with an ice cream cone! What a fun week we had!
