Spring Break

spring break
We went to Magic Mountain and Las Vegas for SPRING BREAK! It just so happens that every year spring break falls right on the weeks of McKinzie, Mike and Miranda's birthday's.(and in that order.) So on Saturday the 27th Kinz kicked it off with a day at Disneyland with her besties!
While Miranda and I went to Young Women's Conference and had dinner at Pat and Oscar's with friends from our ward!! After she got home she and her friends had cake and she got to open her presents.

On Sunday we were supposed to leave for Magic Mountain and then well we weren't really sure what we were doing. Mike was worried about leaving the dogs for so long. Even though Bri had volunteered to come over twice a day and feed them. Oh yea, and they have a doggie door. BUT the problem is they sleep with us and don't do well when we aren't here. Sooo...... one of my darling girls from Young Women's was sweet enough to sleep at the house during the week. I think they definately gave her an adventure, all snuggled up with her at night. So now that Mike's nerves were put to rest we thought of every place imagineable to fly to at the last minute without spending a fortune and realized that wasn't going to happen. So we decided Magic Mountain,Vegas and the Lion King!! We threw in some shopping Mike and Mandi's birthdayand some David Copperfield magic! Their were ups and downs to the trip, good moods and bad moods but all in all it was very fun. I like being with my family. Of course, we missed Gage! He was off being a man, working and learning the responsibilities of adulthood :) Here are some pictures!
