Hailey turned 9 on Wednesday, Jan. 27th! It's amazing how well she's growing up and enjoying life as a responsible 3rd grader. She's a great kid and is a big help at home. She wanted to go to a fun place to eat dinner and so we found the Mayan in Sandy, UT. Here's her birthday "lava" cake at the Mayan Restaurant. It was pretty impressive with the firework shooting off in the middle! You can't really blow it out as it just stops on its own but has a big "wow" factor!
We took her to dinner at the Mayan which features an ancient Mayan ambiance with real divers who dive off of these cliffs into a pool of water below inside the restaurant. It was fun! The kids had a blast and even liked the food! It turned out to be the perfect night!
We are so excited to report that Matthew took his first real steps at Grandma and Grandpa Murphy's house on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! He's having a blast with his new-found freedom. Here's a short clip of him walking in our kitchen and even turning around mastering his new skills! We just love this little guy!
