First Grade Program

1st grade program
Disney's Greatest Hits: Habits Rock!

This year we decided we would do a program with our first graders. We started practicing in December and I thought that was a little early, but then comes June 21st and I'm so glad we started when we did. They learned 9 songs and also a handful of speaking parts and 1 dance. It was so fun and rewarding for them. They looked adorable and nailed it for their parents. The Disney theme was fun too. Singing old familiar songs and connecting them to our 7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids (school wide Steven Covey program). 
Thanks to roommates and Egan for coming! (all the long way out to my school)

maggie's birthday: treats and stoopin

maggie desserts
Maggie's 26th Birthday

Saturday we made pancakes, went to Steiners pool, got late night desserts at Gourmandise, and loitered on the steps near a club downtown. It was observational gold down there. Warm Utah night and funny boys had us very much enjoying our evening.

Sunday Birthday Dinner

Picture 4

Sunday Birthday Dinner

We have a nice tradition of getting together most Sunday's for dinner. Then every once in awhile there is a birthday which makes it a little more special. Annie and Egan know me very well and cooked me up some fish tacos, fruit, rice, corn on the cob, and green salad. That's all I ever want. For dessert Annie made (fresh from her garden) Rhubarb Upside Down Cake. Victory!

Fun to open presents when little people are around (Especially the blow up Solar System!!!!!). Those kids are such a good crowd. Best conversationalists. mmm I love the Porters.

 Thanks sisters.

Mountain Dell 
 Birthday Party!

Egan and Maggie planned a super rad birthday party for me up the canyon at Mountain Dell. It's this sweet little spot you can reserve that has the covered picnic table + fire place area, then baseball fields, restrooms, volleyball courts, playground, horse shoes etc. It's a really cool place. 

This is what went down:
cafe rio takeout
balloon garlands
spray painting
confetti garlands
stringing lights
casey's dads dj system! (best move)
heather's cookies
banana s'mores
best weather
best people
impromptu personalized rhyme from Justin 
Egan and I pretending that we coreographed

The place was perfect. The party was best I've had.
Thanks party planners and helpers.
