Legoland is a theme park in Carlsbad, which is 10 minutes from my parents house. This park opened when I was in high school and everyone I knew worked there. I never had time to go and by the time I wanted to go years later the prices sky rocketed and I thought it was too expensive! Well needless to say, I had still never been to Legoland until this last trip when we were down visiting for Christmas. Sharla found an awesome deal online and we decided it was worth going. I knew Ashton would love it because he is really into Lego's right now. Since the tickets were so cheap, my mom sent Taryn and Maria with us and Sharla took Dallin and Brooklynn and her two friends.
I will say that I was pleasantly surprised. It had lots of roller coasters, which Ashton totally LOVED. He is such a little dare devil, he kept wanting to go on them over and over again. The only downside was that the lines were super long. I think we only got to go on 5 rides and have lunch. Aaron took Ashton on most of the rides while Kaylynn and I went for walks. Ashton did a good job waiting in line, which even I have a hard time doing. He was just so cute because he was so excited about everything. I don't know if I would ever pay full price for a ticket, but it was a really fun day. A big thanks to Sharla for finding an awesome deal! It was fun to do something different and I know the kids loved it.
**P.S. Ashton took the picture of Aaron and I. He just decided he wanted to start taking pictures and he is doing a really good job!

Ashton's Birthday

Well my little boy turned 4 this last December. I can't believe he is already 4! He is one Lucky little boy and got to open presents on several different days. Since we were in California the week before, we decided to have a little family party so Ashton and my Dad could celebrate together. We ordered pizza and my mom made him Ashton his favorite cake. He totally loved it and I was happy to get my grandpa and grandson picture for the year. Ashton loves playing with all his cousins and always has fun at Grandma and Papa's house. Brooklynn even made Ashton his own birthday hat. It was very cute.

Our next party was at home in Vegas. We decided to get a bounce house and just let the kids play. We had a few of his friends over and they played until it was dark out. They played so well together that all the moms got to sit inside and visit. Everyone had a good time and it was fun just watching the boys play. For a few weeks after his birthday he kept asking me if he was having another party. After two weeks of several parties, he thought we should have one every day. He is growing up so fast. I love my little man and feel so blessed to have such a smart, handsome, and loving little boy. Ashton got a lot of really awesome presents which he has played with and loved everyday since his birthday. He is one spoiled little man!
