Matt and Brayden
Matt and I with Brayden. What is up with my hair??? I'm just going to assume it was windy outside. It was actually Mother's Day that day and I was so rushed getting everything together for my calling, I didn't even have time to wash my hair. I had to throw it in a pony tail!
Brayden with our bishopric: Brother Hancock, Bishop Guttery and Brother Poulsen.
For Brayden's actual birthday, I went to the school and brought him lunch. I also brought Krispy Kreme donuts for his class.
Brayden with one of his best friends, Trevor. It was his birthday too. They both have the same birthday! You've got to love the school uniforms and the lovely school cafeteria background!
That night we had dinner at In-n-Out. Since Chase had baseball and it was a school night, we didn't have time for much else. But, who doesn't love a good In-n-Out burger?
Brayden chose a chocolate bundt cake for his birthday cake. Tanner kept calling it the "butt" cake! You got to love Tanner. I guess Brayden wanted to light his own candles!
Opening the presents.
A couple weeks later, we had his birthday party with his friends. We came up with a "Fear Factor" theme where they had to perform different tasks and eat some nasty food. It turned out to be a hit. We also bar-b-qued and the boys topped off the night with capture the flag at the park when it got dark.
Left to right: Jack, Loren, Trevor, Bray, Cameron and Dallin. Brayden has such a nice group of boys that he hangs out with.
Here are the very intimidating judges, Rylee and Devin.
After basketball, sucking on a lemon for a minute and eating some yucky foods such as pickled beets, the boys had to find a piece of gum in the pudding and blow a bubble without using their hands.
What a surprise, Brayden wanted a BYU football cake!
We had a great time celebrating Brayden's birthday. Happy 12th birthday, Brayden!
