Magic Mountain

 We are getting some use out of that Six Flags Season Pass! While in Lancaster for the weekend to attend Bekah's baby shower, we decided to make a day trip to Magic Mountain. 

First thing when we walked in the park, there was a little show going on and the kids got called up to be volunteers on the stage. Haylie's job was to fill a bucket with water and dump it into another basin and be the first one to fill it to the top. In the process she got completely soaking wet. She was a really good sport about it though. She ran right under that water spout over and over again. She thought it was hilarious and had a blast doing it. Thankfully it was a warm day and she dried out pretty quickly. James also got called up as a volunteer but he was being very shy. He passed up the first job and then ended up throwing water balloons. They absolutely loved it. They loved Magic Mountain overall but that was their favorite part of the day!

Now this is a good ride:

Kisses From Katie

This is my new favorite book! Kisses from Katie is an incredible story and her ministry is simply amazing. I learned so much from this inspiring 22 year old girl - I'm ready to move to Uganda!

Date Night

Watching Edwin McCain live was amazing!!! He is so talented and Micah and I have loved his music forever. It was the best night. One funny thing was that the entire room was filled with middle-aged and older people. We were a little surprised to see we were with such an old crowd. As we were commenting on it, we realized at that moment - Micah had a strange kink in his neck that day and was having trouble moving it, while I was having some asthma issues and was wheezing throughout the concert - I guess we fit in better than we thought and maybe we aren't as young as we think we are. Either way - it was an amazing night and definitely one of the best dates. 

After the concert we took a little walk around town and stopped to enjoy a great view of the American River. We are truly blessed:

Six Flags

We have been wanting to go to Six Flags for a while now and finally made it out. We even got suckered into a season pass so we are hoping we will use it a lot this summer! We had a great day together riding all the rides and watching the animal shows.

I seriously love watching these two have a fun time together. They love each other so much and are so sweet together:

Haylie did a Jazz class for dance this year, instead of ballet, and I think she really enjoyed it a lot more. She took the class with her good friend Noelle and they had so much fun together. We enjoyed watching their big recital and were so proud of our little girl!!

These pics were taken during dress rehearsal:

Performance Day... Haylie and her teacher Miss Tessa:

During the actual performance I was one of the backstage Mom helpers so all these pics were taken between the curtains from the side of the stage. It was fun getting two different views:

 Grandma and Grandpa came out to watch and Haylie had lots of pretty flowers:

 Lunch at our favorite place after - Smashburger. So proud of our girl:
