Ok so I'm just going to post about this even though I don't have any pictures of it. My camera decided to die. We didn't go picture-less for it though. My parents' camera worked fine.
So we had a good day for Giselle's birthday. It was more fun this year because she had a little more of an idea of what was going on. During the day we didn't do a whole lot out of the ordinary. That evening, though, we went up to Kelly Canyon and took family photos. We had Lavinda take them. She did Katie and Rico's wedding photos and did an amazing job. It will be good to see what comes out of this photo shoot. We wore navy blue and a bright green which went really well with the scenery. We chose a spot next to the South Fork of the Snake River. It was absolutely gorgeous up there and all three little ones did surprisingly well. The only problem we had was getting them all to look at the camera at the same time.
Our photos went a little long so we had a late dinner and opened Gigi's presents. She got a baby doll stroller that was actually a Christmas present that we never gave her cause she wasn't old enough for it then. And she got a baby doll to go with the stroller, some building blocks, a PlaySkool house, a Book of Mormon (kiddie size) with her name on it, some pom-poms, a scarf, a purse to carry her Book of Mormon in (or whatever suits her fancy, and a random magnifying glass.
Gigi had an awesome birthday! After presents we had some chocolate cake, talked for a bit, then went to bed because it was almost 11 by the time we got done with everything.
