Sasha's First Tooth

It happened. After 3 months of teething her first tooth surfaced! Sasha bit down on Mark's finger last night and he yelled to me to come feel it - YEAH!! You can't see it very well at all, but when you can I'll try to post a picture. This picture is from a few days ago. She has started discovering her own fingers and it is really funny to watch her play with them. We are excited for the weekend - to have some quality family time, and finish some projects around the house! :)

What are you doing this weekend?

I didn't have enough time to post anything with my pictures - but here is a rundown of what happened last Saturday.

Friday night (16th) we went to dinner with some friends for my birthday. It was a lot of fun. Mark didn't let me stay up too late because of my "birthday surprise" - so I went to bed kind of early. He layed out my clothes and said, "We have to be out of the house by 6:00 tomorrow morning. WHAT?!?!? on my birthday? I can't sleep in??

So we wake up on Saturday at 5:20?, got Sasha ready, our babysitter was at our door at 5:55 to pick up Sasha, and we were in the car by 6:00! We drove and drove and drove. I was so confused....then we hit a car accident where traffic was pretty backed up. He gets on the phone, trying to be as indescrete as possible and says, "We are on our way to Deer Valley Airport, we ran into traffic and should be there shortly".

He is taking me to an airport?!?!? What is going on!?

We finally arrive there about around 7:10. He parks right infront of these tiny jumper planes. My mind is going crazy - "is he taking me skydiving?" I know he has always wanted to do that - but I need to work myself up for something like that! But I finally saw some vans with the hot air balloon company on it - boy was I excited! I have always wanted to go on a balloon ride (As a kid I was obsessed with the chipmunks movie where they travel around the world in a hot air balloon). Hee hee.

We were up in the air for a whole HOUR! We traveled in a 5 mile circle, reached heights of 4000 ft., and got up to 9 miles per hour. Afterwards we had a nice breakfast - and it was WONDERFUL!! Thank you Mark!! - you succeeded at keeping it a secret for a whole year! I couldn't have done it! (I usually get so excited that I can't keep secrets from him very well!)

Kourtney and Ben's Wedding!

We just got back from our incredibly short trip to Idaho - where we got to attend my little sisters wedding. She received her endowments at the Rexburg temple before the wedding, and it was my first time through that temple! It is small, but beautiful! Then on Saturday she got married in the Idaho Falls Temple - which is where I got married, so it was a lot of fun to visit there again!

Her reception was a blast! They did a movie theme, so there was a consession stand where you could get your popcorn, candy, and soda - then there were desserts you could eat also! Their cake was adorable, and all I can say is my mom, Kira, and their group of helpers did a GREAT job!! You looked beautiful Kourtney!!

P.S. She got snowed in on their honeymoon and have had to eat Ramen for the last two days...poor things....
