There has been much hype surrounding the grand opening of the new "Sonic" here in western Washington, and today was the big day! After debating weather or not we should chance it, we decided to go for it, I figured if I can wake up at 4am the day after Thanksgiving, I can surely wait an hour or so for some amazing food :) The news stations were all over as if the President was in town. That's what you get for setting up shop in a small town like Puyallup (I say that loosely as it is quickly becoming quite a metropolis) thankfully, we have friends that live right across the street and we were able to park in their driveway (thank you Dan and Molly!) we put Norah in the stroller and Jacob walked with us. We got in the "walk-up" line and waited. Time passed quickly because there was so much to see. The long lines of cars being directed all over, the waitresses doing tricks on their rollerskates, the groups of gossiping teenagers, and the best part, the amount of free slushees that were passed out while we were in line...I must of had 6 different samples! We finally got our food, after about an hour in line, and dug in!It was simply amazing and so worth it! I think I've found a new favorite restaurant!!
Here are a few pictures of our day :)

{TheTiniest Twilight Fan!}

This afternoon my friend Jessica came over with her adorable little girl, Keeley. She is a huge fan of the "Twilight" series and wanted to get some pictures of the baby wearing some of her gear! She did so well and I think they turned out great! I hope Jessica loves these as much as I did :)
Here are a few of my favorite!

{The Spring Fair!}

Last Saturday, Steven and I loaded up the kids and spent the day at the Spring Fair. We couldnt have asked for better weather, it was simply a perfect day to go to the fair! I dont know who had more fun, the kids or us! There was so much food, many crafts, a ton of animals and Jacobs favorite part...the rides :) we are all looking
forward to this September when the big fair rolls into town.
We hope to keep this fun event an annual tradition in our house for years to come! I apologize for all of the pictures...there were just too many to choose from :)

{Happy (Belated) Easter!}

I know this is a week late, but better late than never right? We had a wonderful Easter with our families. We've made it an annual tradition to go to The Ram every year for the amazing lunch buffet. Stevens parents come down from Shelton and both sides get together and spend a fun afternoon with the kids. This year Jacob went Easter egg hunting with his Grandma and Papa Fenton! Stevens parents offered to watch Jacob the whole week and give him back on Sunday and as much as I was bummed we didnt get to go with him, I knew he had a blast with his cousin Serena. We had our own little hunt here at the house so not all was lost :)
Here are a few pictures of our day!

Some treats we brought back from Las Vegas :)
