Happy 18th Birthday Baby Girl!

The Courtney's are coming, the Courtney's are coming!
They sat in the emergency exit seats, look at all the leg room, but . . .
Is this who you want manning the exit doors in an emergency?
Not me, silly, silly girls.
They were supposed to arrive at 11:40 pm, but they were 
late getting in.  They didn't land 'til 11:50 and we didn't see
them until almost 12:20 am, by the time they made it through
customs.  And it just happens to be the morning of Courtney's 
birthday, yeah!
We didn't get to bed until almost 2:00 am, but it was great to
have them here.  The next morning we let them sleep in and then
I fixed them a yummy crepe breakfast.
Shortly afterwards, the "boys" showed up.  Nathan came first and
brought Courtney a bottle of bubbly and Travis showed up with
a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

Good, good friends.
The boys met Courtney and Courtney met the boys.
They had fun, catching up,
being silly,
and playing with bubbles.
It was so fun to watch them play and listen to them laugh.
Then they took some silly pictures
and Nathan enjoyed playing with the "bunny" game.
 He stacked the bunnies 5 high, then they fell.
He tried again and was able to stack six, all in rainbow
order, he didn't even realize it until I pointed it out.
red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple
After they left we took Courtney downtown to look around.
This is the old Strathcona sign welcoming us into the city.
They keep adding on to this high rise apartment building, 
it just gets bigger and bigger.
This is a new building going up downtown, on
First and Jasper.
Then we drove through Chinatown and stopped at the Italian bakery
to pick out a few pastries.  We enjoyed a giant cream puff, an apple 
strudel, blueberry strudel and several other tasty treats.
We passed by this magnificent church, it looks like a building from
downtown Ogden.
This is the Epcor building, Edmonton Power Corporation.

We had so much fun with the two Courtney's today.

We stopped at Dairy Queen on the way home and picked up
an ice cream pizza for her birthday.  I had planned to buy an 
ice cream cake but they were literally all ice cream, no cake.
  I fixed Courtney her favorite dinner for her birthday, Cafe Rio 
sweet pork burritos, they were very yummy.
After dinner they went on a double date with Travis and 
Nathan.  Travis picked them up and they all went over 
to Nathan's for a bonfire and s'mores. 
I made this candy birthday cake for Courtney while
she was out and had it waiting for her when she got home.
It was kind of fun and turned out really cute.
