Memorial Day Weekend-- Part I

We started the long weekend with a trip up to Idaho Falls (yes, kids, for the third weekend in a row-- apparently we want to support the high gas prices or something...) to celebrate a couple of fun occasions.

The first celebration was for sweet little Brynn Freed's first birthday! We love our little Brynnie and we had a great time at her party at the park. Todd and Ann-Michelle put a great party together-- including cool little animal plates and silverware for the kids. They had a blast!

It was especially fun to see Nonny and Bob for the first time since their return from Central America. Our visit was too short this time, but fortunately, they'll be back in the area at the end of June. We have some fun summer plans!

Here is our sweet little birthday girl-- we love you, Brynnie!!

Party, party, party...

After the party, we went back to my parents' house to put the boys to bed, then my dad joined Chris and me to see Spiderman 3. It was a fun show, and very fun to get out and see a movie in the theater, but not the best movie I've ever seen. And I think Toby McGuire is kind of weird. I did like Topher Grace and Thomas Hayden Church. Anyway.

On Saturday morning, we celebrated the graduation of my sister, Caitlan, at a tasty brunch at Smitty's. Caitlan graduated from Skyline High School in Idaho Falls and will be attending BYU at the end of June. It will be fun to have another DeArton girl in Utah!

As usual, the kids all flocked to Aunt Kristie and had a giggle-fest at their end of the table. Kristie is such a cute auntie; my kids are so lucky to have such doting aunts!

At our end of the table (there were 15 of us), Gordon and Hadley had fun cuddling with Nonny and Bob.

It was so fun to spend time with my family. They're such a fun group!

I cannot get over how young Nonny looks. Bob, too, for that matter.
