Big Birthday Weekend!

In honor of Maddies Birthday, we decided to take a little weekend family trip to Billings. We thought it would be fun to take the girls to the zoo. They are young enough that the Montana zoo is cool. I think Sierras favorite part were the reptiles, and Maddies favorite part was picking the random flowers along the path. It was still fun though. One major part of our trip was SWIMMING! Sierra has been dying to go swimming, so we made sure to get a hotel with a nice swimming pool. After the zoo we all got in our swimming gear and went swimming. Of course we all had fun. Maddie liked hanging out in the hot tub with papa. Sierra and I stuck to the big pool. After swimming, we showered and got ready for a nice dinner. The next day we headed home to get ready for Maddies Birthday celebration! Maddie has been talking about her birthday for months. She couldn't wait to turn 3, have a ladybug cake, and invite Aunt Megan over to celebrate. All of her birthday wishes came true! We had a fun weekend. It was nice to have a family fun getaway, and I'm sure there will be many more to come!

At the zoo

Sierra was kind of scared of the tiger.

Animals from the zoo gift store. Sierra chose a baby deer, and if you know Maddie, you wouldn't be surprised that she chose the snake.


Sierra loved jumping off the side of the pool.

The big pool was too cold for Maddie.

It was so fun to watch her excitement!

The ladybug cake.

She almost got them all out in one blow.
