Sina Savani turns 5

This is the Savani we know and love. Such a typical look from her.

She's our little princess with sooo much attitude.

She had her first birthday party. Her and her friends are enjoying some pizza.

Siera wanted to be in charge of her games. She came up with pin the crown on the princess. She drew this princess and then made little crowns for each child. We blindfolded them and let them go.

These are our 2 winners.

We also played freeze dance. They loved this one.

The 3rd game was musical papers. This was a fun game as well. Thanks so much for coming up with the games and helping me Siera. Your the best!! I couldn't of done it without you.

We had the family birthday party for her on Sunday. She got some clothes from Grandma Newman.

And a cute outfit from Aunty Cindy.

She also got a bigger bike from Gma and Gpa Newman. She loved it!

She also wanted an ipod for her b-day. Hello you are 5! But Joshua & Siera have one and so she kept talking and asking for it. So we got her the ipod shuffle. It's hot pink and perfect for her. She loves it. She picked out her songs to go on it and she has listened to it nonstop.

Happy Birthday Savani. You are a wonderful daughter. We are blessed to have you in our family. We love your spunk and especially your attitude. I think you are the most tongan out of any of our kids, even though you always ask me if you can be white like me and Milika. You are a perfect fit for our family!!

Who's up for some boating???

We bought a boat! Fun times. I grew up boating all the time and have always dreamed of having a boat with my family. We are so fortunate to be in a position in where we can afford one. We were trying to decide if we would enjoy jetski's or a boat more. We decided with our family now and the kids still being young that a boat would be best. With jetski's one of us would always have to be sitting on the beach while the other one took the kids out. This way with a boat our whole family fits and we can take lunch in a cooler and enjoy the day out together. We finally had some beautiful weather last week and so we headed up to Deer Creek Reservoire. It's beautiful there. We had a great time.

Milika crashed after boating all day. We can't wait to go every weekend. We are so lucky to live in Utah where we have a different lake basically 1 hr away from us. Well the rest of our summer is planned out, let's pray for the weather to cooperate.

I am trying to catch up on blogging and just blog about a few things that have happened in the last few weeks. First of all we went camping over Memorial weekend with some good friends of ours. We went to Starvalley, WY. It is gorgeous there. Me and Lloyd were laughing and saying how we never knew how beautiful Wyoming was. We had lots of fun riding 4 wheelers and it rained on us and so everyone was muddy and dirty and the kids were in heaven. It was a great time.

Savani learned to ride her bike without training wheels. She had been asking and asking Lloyd to take off her training wheels and to teach her to ride her bike with 2 wheels. So finally he was able to teach her. It was so easy. She rode off as soon as she got on. Lloyd held her seat for a minute and that was it. She was a pro.

Soccer season is over. It was great. We started out playing in the snow and rain it seemed like almost every game. The kids loved it and had a great time. Siera and Joshua really improved their game and Savani had fun flirting and skipping around the field. What else can you expect from a 5 yr old???

The girls have been bugging me to take them to get their hair cut. So we did that yesterday. They both cut off about 6 inches. It will be a nice change for the summer, especially for Siera, she has such thick hair and it will be easier to take care of.
