Birthday Week Days 4,5,6

Day 4 was going to be a relaxing day a recooperating day and that is exactly what it turned out to be. On our way home from my work Isaak fell asleep and Mikaila had been grouchy all morning so I told her to go rest in her bed while I put the groceries away. When I came to check on her she was asleep, 3 hours later they woke up! What a wonderful break for me in the middle of the day that rarely happens!! I got Mikaila ready for swimming lessons again but once again she wouldnt get in the water and cried so I cancelled them for now. She had a problem that it was a male teacher she didnt want him in there so she wouldnt get in. Oh well we'll try again later with a female teacher. Then that evening we went ot Mikael's softball game, picked up Pearce from soccer, quick stop at 7-11 for slurpees and home. Nothing too exciting I didnt even take a picture...

Day 5 we went boating at Hagg Lake. The kids and me played on the beach while everyone else wakeboarded, it was too windy on the water for us and we had much more fun in the sand/mud!

Then we stopped at Pump it up so Mikaila could play and meet Barney of course the highlight of the whole day for her and really the only reason we went there that day she was so excited it was like a dream come true for this little girl!

Day 6 Hello Kitty Birthday Party!!! I woke up during the night shivering with the chills not thinking much of it. Mikaila's party started at 11am. We played Pin the Bow on Hello Kitty and Musical Hello Kitty then pizza for lunch, presents, cake and pinata! The kids had a great I was exhausted and not feeling well. Luckily I had great friends who helped out and the party was a success!! After everyone left I laid down and didnt get back up for hours. I took my temp and it was 102.2 and my throat was sore by morning my throat was on FIRE!! I went to Instacare and found out I had strep throat! YUCK!! So I had to cancel Mikaila's family birthday party :( we postponed Day 7 til next Sunday. Its a good thing she's 3 and doesnt really understand just that she gets to have another party on Sunday something to look forward to!
Wondering where all the birthday pics are...there isnt very many I was too sick to even take pictures! I'm so sad...but her cake on the other CUTE!! thanks Stephanie!

Mikailas Birthday week days 1-3

Monday we started Mikaila's birthday week with pictures of her. She is such a ham for the camera. Everytime the photographer would tell her to smile she would throw her head back and laugh. Fortunately we got some great shots how that happened is a mystery...

Tuesday I took her to the library for books and DVD's then to the Fountains/Park to play and get wet! Isaak was right there with her. He is almost walking and wanted to be so bad. Mikaila loved it she is a water bug. Then off to swimming lessons. We ended up being 15min late because I was in such a hurry I accidently locked Mikaila and Isaak in the car with they keys and my cell phone. Luckily Mikael had just gotten home from work and drove them to me and I freed the children. I couldn't believe I had done that made me sick to my stomach but they survived! After swimming we raced off to the river with friends to go boating then finally home for the night.

Wednesday she had ballet in the morning which she loves believe me this girl needs some grace. She is very athletic but definitly not graceful. She loves to walk around on her tip toes and has forever. I'll tell you this girl has some killer calves for only being 3. After that we headed to the zoo with friends to check out the new lion exihibit and all the animals. After 3 hours at the zoo I was exhausted and ready to go home. We had a really good time and Mikaila wants to go again...maybe next week!

Only 4 more days to go...

Mikaila's favorite thing is running through the sprinklers. Whenever they start it's all I can do to get her to keep her clothes on! We were outside hanging out in the front yard and they started. She started squealing and stripping. I did convince her to at least keep her panties on. Isaak was pretty excited himself. He kept putting his hand in the water and then licking it off. At least they had FUN!
