Dallin’s Birthday Party

After Dallin’s baptism, we headed out to Nana and Grandpa’s house for a little birthday fun.  We started out the event with some yummy treats. (Cheesecake cupcakes, oreo truffles, and sugar cookies on a stick, = yum, yum, and yum!)

Then the kids went straight to the best part of the party – swimming!

After swimming for a while – we opened the concession stand:

Isn’t it cute?  All thanks to the create talent of my friend Mandi! We served popcorn, hot boiled peanuts, cotton candy, and lots and lots of candy!  It was a big hit!

Katheryn, YOU had all the ideas... I just helped. You were the creative genius. I loved it, everything was adorable. Thank YOU for including me. I had a great time just hanging with you. Dallin was so cute all day long. He really is a sweet boy. Glad his birthday was everything the 2 of you wanted it to be.
