Next Stop SLC...and Chloe's Spectacular 6th Birthday

We pulled into my brother's home Friday late afternoon.  Matt and Jessica planned the perfect weekend for our family!
Lots of swimming at the neighborhood pool!
Nate has got some amazing flipping skills!
Alex chumming with his Aunt and Uncle.
The next morning was Chloe's 6th Birthday!

City Creek
Matt and Jessica had organized a SUPER fun activity for all of us at temple square.  We all broke up in teams of three or four and did a scavenger hunt all throughout temple square.  SO FUN!!!  Check out this link for "kit."  http://www.mormonshare.com/sites/default/files/handouts/IttyBittyMormonCityPics.pdf
Sofi and Chloe were on our team and honestly they were our secret weapon.  They were so observant where Birch and I were reading the "hints" they were just looking.  So fun to get to know Sofi a little better too.
After awhile Lizzie spied us and wanted to join our team.  This girl is a nut!
Birch's brother and wife, Andrew and Jenna joined us for the day of fun. 
Then we all went to the City Creek Mall food court and had lunch.  It was a perfect spot for everyone to pick something yummy for lunch.  Chloe picked McDonalds for her birthday lunch.

Jessica made these cute cupcakes for Chloe's birthday and we all enjoyed them while going back for an afternoon swim at the neighborhood pool.  I love this "wishing" picture.
Then Uncle Matt strapped on his GO-PRO to the boys and they were in heaven!

Lizzie LOVES Tyler!



Uncle Matt created an awesome video of the kids!  Click here is you cannot see the video:  http://vimeo.com/98855188

Then we hopped in the car and headed to Midway, UT to the Homestead Resort for the evening concert and dinner.  I fell in love with the Homestead--I will return someday for a romantic get-a-way.

We LOVED our time with the Sherry family!  Matt and Jessica are a perfect combo together!
Chloe opened her present from us while listening to the outdoor concert.  I love this series of photos cause you can see the PURE JOY in Chloe's face.  Feels good to get it right sometimes!!!

So happy this cute girl is part of our family!  Love this girl!!!
