After dinner at El Torrito, the boys were a little slap happy and being silly. Junior got a early birthday kiss from Justin. Sadly, this is not his first kiss from a guy. Aaron you will always be Junior's first.
After our morning walk (run for Justin and Miriam), we went to the U.S.S. Midway. The Midway is an aircraft carrier that has been turned into a museum.
Just kidding, we all had a fun.
We had so much fun on this trip. There was laughter and good times. It was great for Junior and I to take the time to re-connect and leave the stresses of life at home. It reminded me that no matter what life brings me, I am thankful that I have my best friend by my side to go through it with me. And I also, have a great family.

For dinner we met grandma and grandpa VanderLinden in Park City for dinner. We had a great dinner. The kids behaved well, even Zane. After dinner we went home and had a giant birthday cookie. (I almost burnt down the house)
Happy Birthday My Love!

I really not sure what dad was doing.
After the museum, we met up with the cousins in down town Salt Lake for lunch. We went to Muchies Meatballs. They have philly steak and meatball sandwiches. This restaurant was on the Salt Lake episode of Diners, Dives, and Drive-ins. Junior and I are fans of the show and were really excited to go. We both got the philly and it was YUMMY! However, in true Philadelphia form they put american cheese slices on the sandwich. I think you have to be from Philly to really appreciate it.
After lunch we head up the hill to go home. Junior and I were still full from lunch when dinner rolled around so for dinner I made the kids breakfast. They had chocolate chip pancakes, eggs, and bacon. The kids loved it. After dinner we played our new game that we got at the PKU breakfast. Scrabble Junior, I am not a fan of scrabble but I liked scrabble junior because the words were already on the board.
We had so much fun playing this game. Dad and Garrit tried to cheat, but Emilee would not let them get away with it. I don't know how it worked but we all tied. We were all winners!
And to finish off our great day we had movie night. We popped popcorn, had candy, and root beer. We watched Collage Roadtrip, the kids loved it. It had silly humor in it so the kids laughed through the whole movie.
I had so much fun hanging out with my family. I am so blessed with such a wonderful family.

As the sun came out this morning I thought that we would have a beautiful day with sun and snow. However, here in Utah things change fast and it is snowing again.

Garrit was a Jedi.
And Zane was a fighter pilot.
The kids had a great time. Emilee went trick-or-treating with her friend for about an hour. I am not sure if I am ready to admit, that she is at the age when would rather do things with her friends then her family. I took Garrit and Zane out while Symen handed out candy.
The first house Zane was a little scared. However, if his brother and sister are doing it so will he. He went to the door with the kids and just stood there. After he got the candy he was excited. The next house and every house after that he would say "tric tret" and "thank you".
After taking the boys out for an hour, I took the boys home and Symen took Emilee and Garrit to the haunted house and to do some more trick-or-treating. Emilee was all jazzed about the haunted house. According to her "Its not going to be scary because I remember it from last year." Well, to her surprise they changed it. She went through with her hat over her eyes. She even ran into a wall. Garrit on the other hand was going to go, as long as dad carried him. He did fine through the whole thing except at the end. Garrit told me "there was a guy in jail, and I was scared that he would take my candy."

After many failed attempts to get a picture with the kids smiling, I gave up and had the just be silly.
