Jolie's Party at the Park

We were down in Tempe for Jolie's birthday so we decided to have her party at Kiwanis Park.
I remember having birthday parties here when I was a little girl.
We had a great time hangin' out with family and friends.

I can't believe it's been 7 years

Name: Jolie Alexis Mecham
Nicknames: Jolie Bear, Boo Bear, Boo Boo, & Loves
Age: 7
While out shopping the other day, Jolie says to me "Mooooomm I'm 7 now so I can't hold your hand."
I said in return "Okay then I guess I will give you kisses instead."
After that holding hands didn't seem too bad.

Breakfast from Jolie

For Bronson - A roll with jelly and white chocolate chips and a smoothie to drink.
For Mom - Bread with peanut butter and sprinkles. The drink is milk, marshmallows, and a little Hershey bar for good measure.
Jolie is my little sweetheart. She always wants to serve others and do special things for them. It doesn't always turn out but we love her for trying.

Sledding in Flagstaff

A while ago..........

Jolie and her cousin Zane didn't just want to sled on the same runs as everyone else. They decided to try out a nice new patch of fresh powder.

They didn't realize it was FOUR FEET of powder.

This led to Jolie getting stuck pretty good.
In short Ben had to climb down the wrong side of the sledding area to pull Jolie out. Incidentally Jolie lost her boot in the hole and Ben spent twenty minutes rescuing the stranded sledders. And the boot.

I think this was the only time Faye wasn't crying. She was not a happy camper.
Mental time... don't bring a baby!
Bronson looked so dang cute in all his snow gear.
He liked to curl up on the sled while we pulled him around. Our little turtle.
Man, I wish I got a good picture of it.

We had a blast spending time in the snow and with Zaners!
