This is a BIG post .... I caught up so I can start posting some holiday events.
There are a so far a few days in my life that I have wanted to feel special on. My 16th birthday, my wedding, the day my first born came into this world and my 30th Birthday....I know it seems silly but I really was having a harder time then I thought looking into that number. I came to the conclusion I think its because I am a dancer that this number is painful. I had to finally say I am no longer a youngin. Sniff sniff.....after a good deep breath I told my husband that I would like something really special this year so I can feel young again. So this is how my wonderful birthday went ...(from the greatest honey ever).
We were getting ready for the parade this year. Ja had come in early and so we decided that we wanted to hold on to our tradition to ride in the parade. D had went to IF to get a part for is car and drop it off while us girls got some of the final things for the parade stuff. We were just getting back when D called and said hay I just dropped that part off Ill come out to moms and come see you. This made me freakin excited because he NEVER volunteers to come out to my parents. I thought he must really be trying to be sweet to me for my birthday. And was I ever right. He pulled up and I came out with my mom. He said turn around I have something for you......My mother was looking into my eyes and said "Oh honey your going to like this it going to be so fun" I turned around to see this little bum hiding behind D and sure as the stars I knew who it was before she ever popped her cute little face out. My best friend Elise. (picture above) I wept for joy and excitement. I couldn't belive that she was really here. I will never forget that day. It was such a surprise. And it wasn't even my birthday yet .........
After the parade was over which you will see those pictures below. D had my sister and Elise detracted my all day and take me to the fair. We had just gotten in when ja and Danni disappeared. Called my sister and she told me she had to run home to get her meds. So Elise and I walked around having fun laughing and playing with her daughter. Elise tried several times to get me to go home (D was trying to get her to bring me home) and each time I could come up with a logical reason why we didnt need to. Finally D called and said that Mindee had come over and wanted to see me and was waiting at the house. So we went home. Right away they said Mindee wanted to see D's handy work in the basement so we headed downstairs. (I still have not clued in AT ALL by this point). When we get in the hall way I look over in the door way and there are all my friends! SURPRISE!! Yah, it was pretty cool. Plus us girls got to have a night of youth. D made me an Angel food cake, had refreshments, the whole nine yards and took the kids THE WHOLE DAY! And it wasn't even my birthday yet.....
Then he had the family over the next day on Sunday for ice cream. Got some money to get my curling iron and the boots I ve been wanting. I was SUPER spoiled. And it wasn't even my birthday yet.....
Needless to say when Monday finally rolled around and it WAS my birthday I told My Man if he celebrated me turning 30 one more time I was going to vomit...haha. So he got to watch BSU FOOTBALL on my birthday for being so amazing to me. But later that night Amy came and stole me away. We went and I had ice cream. We were going to go to the fair but we decided it was TOO late. I love my honey and all my friends and family for making this birthday one I will NEVER forget.
Mj watching the parade with My Man, Elise and her family.
We had a campfire earlier in the week. We wanted to roast some marshmallows and hot dogs while it was still warm here. Here is me and my sisters friend from AZ that has NEVER been to Idaho~
We also went to see Delores in Utah. Funny story, we were packed and headed to see D's mom in Boise. When I asked D if he had talked to his mom? He said No, Ill call her when we stop. 30 mins into the trip he did and SHE WAS IN UTAH! Yah, "men" I tell you what they do not know how to plan ahead....
Look at all of us we could so be professionals don't you think?
Watching the high skiers flip into the pool. It was crazy! They get so HIGH in the air before they land in the pool.
Ja came in! We went to MceDs it was Ja's favorite place while growing up. It isn't now but the kids needed food!
We of course had to go to the Fair. We even watch my friend Mee mee play in her band again.
And we went again and this time with my friend Krissy Fur.
D sporting his new sades....(side note D finally let me talk him into a COWBOY hat ladies!) Ill try to get a picture of him in it to post.
D workin on the basement I talked about earlier. He is such a man...or a dork...I still haven't decided.
One the coolest things we did this summer was go to Lagoon with Mee mee and her family.
It was a blast! We loved every second of it. We even took are camper and it was so nice to have it to sleep in instead of tents.
Our second day in the park. Mj loves to take pictures!
Our first day in the park we did Lagoon Beach and the kids rides.
One day she will drive!....wow.
Bo screamed when I tried to take him out of the car ....hehe.....he loved that ride. Totally flipped out!
Keagan is such a gentlemen Mee mees boy he totally helped Mj get in this ride. Too cute.
What a fun summer I wish I could do it all again and miss the winter.....boo hoo. I guess I will just have to tough out the cold this year with memories that were this Hott!
