One of Joy’s sweet helpers at church is moving :(

We are super sad.  She helped Joy be able to sit still for Primary (Children’s church)

We will miss you Melissa!

July

We have had the craziest summer – once we moved here and we got all settled, I got incredibly bored!  My babies were in school all day (on the bus at 8AM, and home around 5PM) – what’s a typically crazy busy Mama to do?  So I got a part time job at church.  It was great – around 20 hours a week and flexible.  But I didn’t think about the summer – my job is year round.  Oops!  So my big girls have been taking care of my little girls while I work.

On this day,  I went to work at 4AM, so I could come home and spend the whole day with the little ones.  We had a great time!

Joy is 9!!

Our celebration of Joy’s birthday this year was quite prolonged.  We knew we couldn’t do much on her actual birthday, so we divided it among many days.

First – Dinner out.  We went to Red Robin because she LOVES French fries and they have the bottomless French fries.  She got that and a Coke and she was a happy girl!

She also loved that you can play games on their little screens there!

They sang to her and gave her a birthday ice cream – she LOVED that!

For an activity – the family went to House of Boom.  There are tons of indoor trampolines – so very fun!

Jessi and Joy made some birthday hats

We took her to pick out her cake – and she hopped right back there to watch them right her name on it!  :)

We took her to Toys R Us – like last year and let her pick out her presents.  I always go in thinking I know what she’ll want, and she always surprises me.

This year I thought it was time for a bike.  But no, she tried out a couple and we did some test runs, and no thank you, she was done.  OK. 

As always it’s this ride she loves the most!

Joy and her presents – Peppa Pig, Baymax (from Big Hero 6), a car toy, and five babies.  She LOVED the babies!
