My Birthday and Sandy Peak

We did finally make it to Boise. We stayed at Heather and Wynn's new house. The first week they were off at the Sperry Reunion in Utah so we missed them. My parents, my nieces, Alia and Lola and Larry and his family were with us the first few days. I really enjoyed visiting with Larry and Sarah. Nelson loved hanging out with Jake and Atticus. They left after just a few days, but my parents and nieces stayed the rest of the week. My birthday was on Tuesday and I had a great day. Rebecca arranged for me to have a pedicure and I went there with my mom. Later that day we took all 8 kids and wandered the mall. We had a great time. The mall wasn't very crowded, but every store that we walked in we filled. My mom made me a chocolate birthday cake and a great dinner. The day could of only been better if Brad was with us. He flew home from Boise the day after we got there.

The day after my parents went home, Heather and her family arrived back home. That Monday we went to a place called "Sandy Point" (I think?) for family night. The kids had a great time playing in the water, and eating hotdogs and mini cupcakes. Right before we were going to leave a storm blew in. The wind got really strong and we had to run around like crazy catching all our stuff. I think the wind make the outing even more exciting!
