Cadence's 3rd Birthday

Cadence's 3rd birthday was spent at East Canyon with Grammy, Cole, Syd, Jeff, Tammie and us. She was so excited her cousins could be there. She LOVES them!!! In the morning, we attended the Fourth of July breakfast put on by the restaurant at East Canyon. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, potatoes, and OJ! yum!!!! Afterwards, we went back to the condo to let the birthday princess open presents. Cadence received a coloring book, bubbles, float toys for the pool, ABC stacking blocks, a felt learning book and other dollar store gifts. She had fun stacking the blocks and Cooper enjoyed trying to knock them over - much to Cadence's dismay! Because we were on vacation, we bought just one piece of cake that was destroyed by the time it came to blowing out the candles. Gratefully, Cadence still enjoyed blowing out all three candles and eating part of it. Activities for the day included a small hike, swimming, playing with presents, attempting to go fishing only to be attacked by mosquitoes, playing on bunk beds, and playing at the playground.
In the evening, we drove to Henefer to watch fireworks. Because Cadence was three, she wasn't afraid. (When we watched fireworks two days earlier in Hyrum, she screamed and cried.) She said three made her brave.
As we were going to bed, Cadence told us she had such a fun day and asked if she could turn three again!!!! It was so cute!!!
When we got home a couple days later, we surprised her with a big gift - a new bike (kindly given to us by some friends after their daughter grew too big for it.) Cadence obviously loved it!!!The bike has gone up and down the sidewalk many times since she laid eyes on it! She wrecked on it the first night she got it, but after a few minutes got back on and rode some more. It's because she is brave she says.
What a grand birthday this was! Cadence is one sweet little three-year-old!!!
