{HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME...}

And guess who discovered the cloning tool in photoshop......

I am officially 31! THIRTY-ONE! YIKES!

My SO SWEET hubby took me out for my b-day on Friday, since my birthday is on a Sunday. AND my amazingly kind friend Jenn volunteered to be subjected to my children! THANK YOU JENN!

We went to see Get Smart (Hilarious) and to the Trail Creek Cabin for dinner. I love when Ryan surprises me! He always goes over the top! He didn't tell me where we were going. I was TOTALLY purplexed when we passed the Sun Valley Lodge. I didn't know that there was anything beyond that. It was so beautiful! He made reservations for us to sit outside and the view over the river and in the canyon was amazing! It was a perfect night for it! In light of some of my friends deciding to pack up and move out of here, it was just what I needed to remind me why I ABSOLUTELY love living in this valley! IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I love it! Really, if you haven't been here. You must! We do also provide a free place to stay! :)

So what did I get for my birthday.......

OH YEAH! JUST WHAT I WANTED! Seriously, there was nothing that I wanted more than a swing set! Can I just tell you how much my kids are loving this thing?!
Today we had Dani & Drew over for a while to play in it. I filled the pool with warm water and the kids LOVED sliding into it!


After 4 hours of Baseball today, these boys needed this! We had the end of the season Jamboree, where the boys play 4 games! It was pretty hot today, well about 90ish. These two stayed like this for a while just talking. I do wonder what they were talking about!


And of course, we cannot leave out the caterpillar! He was left out all day! I guess the kids were spoiled with the warm water!

When Mallory woke up from her nap she was SO excited about the pool! She and Jake played out there for about 3 hours today! Dawson didn't care much for me when I put his feet in the pool, but didn't mind the swing too much! He just LOVED being outside!

Wow. I really had to catch up on your blog. I was behind. Hope you had a good b-day...and to re-emphasize earlier today...we are not going anywhere. I am really sad about who we are losing, though. It is making me depressed. Thank goodness for blogs, so we can keep in touch.

Jeni said...

Happy Birthday to you my cute, cute friend. I love that picture of you. You are a beautiful person inside and out and I absolutely love you to pieces. I am going to miss you like crazy but thank goodness for Qwest's $20.00 max long distance plan, blogs and LONG car rides so we can keep in touch forever. I love, love, LOVE you!

Love you Dae!

Brenda said...

Happy late Birthday!!! Hope you had a wonderful one!

Dirk & Dae said...

I haven't thought about the tote goat or CB for sooooo long! I am laughing out loud!! If I were younger, I would have said "LOL"! I'm 37. I'll be 38 this year. Oh, how I hate to write that. It looks so much worse written down than in my head!! *sigh*
