Hangin' with Friends and Sam's B-day

I made sure to spend as much time as possible with one of my very best friends while in Tennessee.  The kids played (and Caleb ate marshmallows-see his stash on the red pillow?) while Dani and I baked cupcakes and caught up with each other.  We also made sure to eat lots of Sonic, take the kids swimming and attend a temple session at the Nashville Temple.

 It happened to be Dani's Birthday while we were visiting, so we go to share in her celebration at Omikoshi Japanese Restaurant. Bug LOVED watching our chef cook the food, but Bear was terrified by the fire.  He sat in my lap with his ears covered most of the time.  At least we go this adorable smile out of him...

It was also Uncle Sam's 12th Birthday while visiting.  We got to be part of his Priesthood Ordination.
Bug is closely observing the gift opening. 
 Sam got his first phone.  He was THRILLED.

 Belle gnawing on some celery.  She is soooooooo cute. Once after night time prayers Bug told us that his eyes were getting watery because he was looking at her and it made him so happy.  The greatest happiness really is found within the family unit.

Wow... Sam is 12?! I had him in nursery my first summer back from college. He was the best behaved kid in the class. I'm so jealous you got to go to TN. Looks like you had a lot of fun!
