Vacation Day 8–Brave and Birthday

On the last Saturday of our vacation we went to see a movie and then celebrated Dallin’s birthday.  It was the opening weekend of Brave and we loved it!


We pretty much took up a whole row across the theater.


We had gotten there early (which apparently is NOT something that is done in Asheville because we got there 45 minutes before the movies started thinking there would be a line to get in and we were the ONLY ones there and the theater wasn’t even open – definitely not like an opening weekend here in Orange Park) and Mandy showed us some more of her amazing bendy skills.


After the movie we headed to a skating rink for Dallin’s birthday party.IMG_9323IMG_9336IMG_9260IMG_9262IMG_9305IMG_9354

Even Grandpa got out there – for only like 5 minutes, but hey, he tried!


Layton was super nice (well, you know, after I bribed him) and let all the little kids take turns with his skates.  While they did, he spent his time pretending to play video games.


After some mini-cupcakes and ice cream,


Dallin opened all his presents!  He loved them all – especially the money :)


After the party, we went up the road and took a look at the little cabins that the Jarvis family used to stay in when Nathan was a kid.  And then took a few minutes to play on a nearby playground.


Another great day as our vacation comes to a close!

Looks like fun! That is funny about the movie. Aaron took Abi opening night to see it and was 20 mins. early it was sold out. They had to wait and catch the next showing.

Happy birthday Dallin! What fun. Loved the idea with the $1 in the tissue box. Glad everyone had fun on such a special day!

Bendy Mindy, right?! You planned an awesome party, we loved it! We are thinking about getting ourselves some skates and going again. ;)
