Festival of Trees

The day Shawn came back from his work trip, we went to Festival of Trees. We've never all gone as a family and I went years ago. We had to park pretty far away and we weren't prepared for it. So we walked fast in the freezing cold with blankets and things to get to the building. Ugh. Sometimes I wonder about my mothering skills!
Caden was wrapped up in a blanket and had Cambee's hat on.
The place was jam-packed and Shawn was hating the slow pace while looking at the trees. The kids enjoyed looking at them and picked their favorites.
Sadie loved the Frozen tree
And the peacock tree. She's really into peacocks lately.
This one was cool with the little steps going all the way up.
The BYU tree was a definite fav!
Another peacock tree...they would ask to get their pics taken in front of lots of trees and I was happy to oblige.
A pink and black Paris tree. It was pretty in pink!
A ballet dancer tree
A superman tree!
Another fav was the Star Wars tree
This upside-down tree was amazing!
The Tangled tree was my favorite! The hair and the tower was awesome!
A cars tree. The cars even zoomed around the tree on a track.
When we were about 1/2 way through, Brinley said she wanted to go off on her own to take pictures of some of her favs. Shawn thought that was fine and didn't tell her to meet somewhere or anything. Ugh. The place was packed!! So we waited and waited and Shawn went off to find her. We waited and waited and Caden was d-o-n-e with the stroller and so that means he was running all over. Shawn finally came back and we decided to page her over the intercom. That finally worked. So a 1/2 an hour later, we could leave. Ugh. It didn't end too well and I don't know if Shawn will want to go again.

Of course Easton didn't want to be in the pic so I only have 4 kids. ;)
