Brinley's Birthday

It was Brinley's 13th birthday this year! Whoa. I have a teenager. Yikes! For her birthday she wanted was to have a movie-a-thon. So she set the whole thing up and invited 2 friends over and had an approved list of PG-13 movies to watch. I gave her money to go to the store to buy some treats. It was a crazy week with dance so I was glad that she took care of her party. They had a good time and I hardly saw them! Easy-peasy!
My brother and his family moved back from Arizona that week too. So they were staying at our house off and on. On Brinley's actual birthday (Saturday), it was the Cedar Hills parade. My brother's family came to watch and then they quickly left to go house hunting. It's the perfect parade. Just short enough and candy!

The motorcycle policemen were driving down the street giving high-fives to the kids. Easton got missed, not once but twice! So he threw himself down on the grass and threw a fit. Classic.
He quickly recovered when the parade started and he got candy.
The Orem Owl
Our Stake Girls Camp had a float. Their food truck! That was fun!
The girls waved to the royalty.
Captain Jack Sparrow!
After the parade, we went back to the house and Brinley opened her presents. She wanted the new Star Wars movie, a Star Wars t-shirt, and my old cell phone. :) It still only texts so actual cell phone service.
In the afternoon, Brinley volunteered to help with the children's games. She's so great to do that on her bday. I took Easton and Sadie over to play some games. They got obsessed with the prizes and played them a few times to get the prizes they wanted.
She wanted cheesecake for her birthday cake.
It was a busy day with the girls' concert that night but we got home in time for the city fireworks. It was a perfect day to end her birthday.
