The Best Day....Today

Friday night I got an email that The Sweet Tooth Fairy in Provo was going to be celebrating Nie Nie's birthday with a special cupcake and that all of the proceeds of these yummy creations would be going to the family fund and the AZ Burn Center. I mentioned it to Clark and didn't think about it again.


Alex woke early this morning. We sat together eating breakfast and he told me stories and asked me questions. And then he told me I was pretty. insert my heart melting here. A short while later as I sat enjoying a cup of coffee...Alex came to me and said 'Provo Mama, Cupcakes'. He had been coached by Calvin and that was all I needed to hear. I quickly packed some snacks and juice and off we went for an adventure! If you know me...I don't do unplanned adventures very well.

We took a couple detours to a Dinosaur Museum, the gift shop at Thanksgiving Point and The Olive Garden and then we finally made it to our destination and enjoyed some yummy cupcakes! As I sat there in a sugar coma with my family...I said a pray for Nie Nie. I hope that soon she is back to doing all of the things that she loves to do and that she has many, many more birthdays.

It was completely worth the drive....and now we can say we've been to Provo.

  1. What a cute video Connie - you are so clever! I am so bummed, I didn't see this on her blog until tonight. I was down in Alpine today visiting my friend who is sick and I was so close - I could have made a detour to Provo. Darn! Were the cupcakes good?

    My kids love the dinosaur museum!

  2. That montage was beautiful :) I think some of the best days are the ones that are spontaneous. I am glad you are feeling better and that you had such a wonderful adventure!

  8. I love your video- what program do you use to make it? I have made tons on my Mac (iMovie), but haven't seen any cute formats like that before!!!

  9. How fabulous and what a great idea! I swear with all my blogging friends in Utah I may have to ask "V" if we can move out there! I bet the cupcakes were amazing!

  10. THAT was a terrific video! I don't want to know how you did it, b/c I'd never find the time to do it half as well! So sweet! Your kids are adorable (and hubby too!) and those cupcakes look delish! I might have to settle for chocolate cake in a mug...
