On my actual birthday, we went to Mom and Dad's to pick up Christian (Noah didn't last all night..because of me...he is very inconsistent about sleeping through the night, so I told Mom to let me know if he woke up and was fussy. It was just as we were coming home from Wichita (Ben and I went out for my birthday)..so we just picked him up on our way home.). Anyways..Mom treated us to a big breakfast...thin pancakes, eggs, sausage, orange julius. Afterwards, Christian was watching Ben and Dad work on something around the pool...and he threw a small piece of concrete in..AGH! I put my suit on, and went in to get it. Mind you...this weather has still been considerably mild for this time of year..it was FREEZING! But I got the rock..and it was very jagged, so I like to think it was worth while to get in and get it. I went straight to their hot tub afterwards...and that felt wonderful :)
The rest of the day was just a regular ol' day. But after supper I wanted to do something...so we went into the Arboretum. It turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL evening. Really, it was just perfect. No wind, the sun was just right...and it was even just enough cool to wear a long sleeved shirt and jeans.
I had a perfect birthday evening.
Spent with my family...taking pictures.
I took a
few lot of pictures and these were some of my favorites.
We saw Great Grandpa John as we were blowing bubbles in the grass. He was out for a walk.
Noah was so interested in his face, he just kept touching him!
It was a good day...a great day.
I am blessed to have these last 30 years...looking forward to the years to come...
I will try to live them each to the fullest :)
