So here's the thing, Felicity recently competed in the Orem City Summer fest Baby contest! With the help of my sister (who sews, I do not) things turned out great! The theme was babies through the ages and I had the idea to make Felicity into some sort of Elizabethan baby. I bought a dress on clearance and my sister sewed all of the fancy lace and ribbons on. I even found a great broach at Savers (where were Jana's cameos when I needed them?). Along with her beautiful dress she wore a tall white cotton ball wig. When I came up with the idea I found out there really are things you can't buy on the Internet! Shocking. Nobody was selling an old timey wig for a 6 month old. So I had to glue cotton balls to one of Felicity's hats. I love my baby in a wig.
So I decided to enter Felicity in the costume category because I figured it was our best shot for a win. I mean, she's adorable but so are a million other kids. She competed with boys and girls ages 0-36 months.-everyone that wore a costume. And... Drum roll please -we-yes we-got third place! At first I was kind of mad because I am very competitive (staying up until three in the morning trying to win at sorry)-and I wanted 1st place of course. But I realized that third is great! Starting her career with a white ribbon win-it'll boost her confidence but won't go to her head. There were about 40 kids in the costume category and the 1st and 2nd place winners were very cute. First place was a little boy in an aviator costume-cute helmet and jacket. Second place was a girl in a poodle skirt outfit.

A picture of the Thornton Sisters at the temple. Beautiful huh? The colors where gray and light pink. Very pretty. I don't have more pictures of the wedding because we all count on Jenn to take care of that. Thanks for the picture Jenn and congrats Michelle!
Felicity's first time at the beach!
It was a little bright for her.
On the "Supreme Scream" with my two brothers and Tara. We love this ride!

This is how sad Jana and I were after we got talked into going on this water ride.
The whole group!
We had a fun B-day party that night at Jana's and my other BFF Rischel was able to come and meet Felicity! What a great day. I got my hair cut, went to the game, had yummy barbeque and and strawberry cake and got to spend time with some of my favorite people. We had a wonderful trip and we couldn't have done it without the generosity of others. Thanks to my parents for helping us get there and for babysitting and especially thanks to Jana and Wes who let us stay with them AND borrow their car. You guys are the best! We miss California already.
