I turned the big two-nine this week.
I'm just gonna soak up the fact that it wasn't my 30th...yet.
I had a wonderful week, with lots of celebrating!
I went shopping with my mom and sisters a few nights before my actual birthday.
As always, we had a fab time.
Man, I love those 3.
We ate a late dinner at Cheesecake Factory where I had the biggest salad on earth (it towered), and then we finished up with this baby...
The night before my birthday, Brett and I went to the movie and dinner sans the kiddos...thanks to Kate, who watched my little chickens.
Brett planned the whole thing...and I pretty much just showed up. Heaven.
The morning of my birthday, I slept in (a little), while Brett played with the boys...
and I woke up to 3 eager boys ready to spoil mama!
Jack was really excited to show me and help me open all of my presents.
They gave me new bedding...
A really nice fancy new blow dryer.
A gift card & massage appointment.
We threw on our shoes and headed out for a little breakfast at our home away from home...Chick Fil A.
Tucker was happy and ready to celebrate.
I came home to these pretty's from my mom and dad.
We had a low key day back at home-- with playing and naps- and then in the late afternoon met up with my family for dinner at Los Hermanos.
These 2 have been around for EVERY one of my birthdays to date.
Love love love them.
We headed over to Lindon Elementary (Kate's school), for some PE time.
Sounds just like what every 29 year old wants to do for their party, right?
Ok-- maybe not EVERY one...but, it's exactly what I wanted to do.
Maybe it's the ghost from my PE teacher past inspiring this...
but, on occasion, we have found ourselves playing in her gym and we always have a blast.
Kate, Annie, and I took this most serious, as just a couple of months ago we sparked some competition between the three of us in the form of scooter races.
The boys played basketball, the kids ran like wild monkeys, we obstacle coursed, and dodge balled.
(My only pic of all 4 of us on my birthday. Time for a ponytail...yikes!)
Just minutes after arriving, I did an outfit change...and the spandex was out in full force!
(Jack literally shot hoops for 2 hours straight.)
My mom kept Tucker smiling while I was busy WINNING obstacle courses.
It was intense.
We took a brief intermission to the faculty room (ritzy!) for some pie, ice cream, and presents.
It really was a blast.
I don't know if you could tell...
I really love my family.
We have a good time no matter what we're doing.
The next day, the celebrations continued.
The Jones' threw me ANOTHER party up in Alpine, and Laurel cooked a delicious dinner for the occasion.
Bjornn, Mya, Ethan, Zetta, and Jack disappeared for a while to make me these darling cards:
And Tucker let me mug on him like this...
It was a WONDERFUL birthday, spent with all of my favorite people.
I am a lucky girl.
Even if I'm an old fart.
