Last weekend we thought we would take Dane to the zoo! The weather was perfect and we all had such a good time. Dane's favorite would have to be the monkeys...go figure! He would point at them and then kick his legs like crazy. We also saw en elephant, rhino, giraffe and crocodile! The tigers were all sleeping and Brent was bummed because the part that has the penguins and polar bears was under construction and will be finished next summer. Guess we will be going back. Like how we are wearing our Boise State gear? Go BRONCOS!!!

Birthday Bash!

This boy had such an awesome birthday! We went out to lunch with some of his friends to McDonalds and had chicken nuggets, fries and root beer! He was also featured on Good Things Utah for his birthday. My mom, Steve, dad and Lupe all came to share this special day with us. He got so many fun gifts that he just loves them all! Dane is such a special boy and we just don't know what we would do without him. He is constantly making us laugh! So glad that he was sent to our family.

I wanted to get creative and I made him a sock monkey birthday banner! It turned our super cute. We left it up all week since we celebrate birthday WEEKS around our house!

Dane wasn't sure when it came to opening gifts. He would get so excited with one gift that he just wanted to play with that. He was so funny to see his expression and have him make is vrooom noises when he got his 4-wheeler and Buzz car!
We got pizza for everyone and boy does he love pizza and root beer! It was priceless when this kid ate his cake! I'm so glad that he had such a fun party. The day after his birthday I asked him if he had a good birthday and he looked at me and shook his head up and down!!
