Devin's Birthday 2012.
Birthday Mountain bike ride in the foothills. (Pole Cat) This was my first time mountain biking.
I was pretty scared of falling down a long cliff but other than that, it was SO fun. I can see why Devin loves it so much. He said it was his favorite part of the whole day. Mine too. Something about being in nature together. Devin's sis babysat for us. They are the nicest.
We reached the top! It was peaceful and quiet.
Incredible weather for the first of December.
The day had to move on..
Dum dums, dill pickles dates and doughnuts served for Devin's Dodgeball party.
Devin is Young Men's president, so he wanted to invite all of them to his party too.
It was dangerous in there.
We had a kids game later since their heads would have been knocked off in the men's game.
Devin finally had his dodgeball party he has always wanted. :)
We went home for naps then Devin canceled our babysitter.
He wanted all of the little ones to join him for his birthday dinner.
Restaurants with our children is always memorable.
Our Nay, dances to beat of her own drum.
Another case in point: I took Gage and Naomi for a walk to the bathroom. While I was helping Nay, someone opened the heavy bathroom door and Gage bolted. I noticed he was quiet a second later and turned around to find him missing. I ran out, the people at tables must have recognized the look on my face and pointed in the direction he went. The next table did the same, till I got all the way across the restaurant and the kitchen double doors swing open and out bolts Gage smiling and doing his skip-hop run, with 2 servers behind him, shooing him out.
We saved Devin's favorites for after the house fell asleep:
Martinelli's, Bourne Supremacy and a few gifts.
