30th Birthday Weekend

A recap from my 30th birthday weekend

1.  Flathead Lake - Lakeside, MT - One of my favorite places ever!

2.  Family - I was lucky enough to spend my birthday weekend surrounded by lots of family.

3.  Cabin - I have now been going up to this cabin for the last 30 years.  Wow, that makes me sound kind of old, when I say it like that.  My parents took me there for the first time when I was only a couple weeks old.  I'm not sure how much longer it will be in my family, but I will cherish every memory I have from there.

4.  Relaxing

5.  Camp Fires - I love fire!

6.  Mooses Pizza - Yummy pizza, peanuts, sawdust on the floor, carvings on every surface...

Chris, Me, Meghan & Marcus

Dad, Suzanna, Dad, Parker & Mom

7.  Throwing/Skipping Rocks - You can't go to the lake without throwing or skipping a rock.  One of Parker's favorite things to do.

8.  Painting rocks and drift wood with Parks - One of the many activities I used to do with my Grandma, at the lake.

9.  Chocolate Birthday Cake - Make a wish!  Heavenly and I got to enjoy it for the rest of the week :)

10.  Playing Solitaire with real cards - Kind of tradition at the cabin

11.  S'mores - Yum!

12.  Popcorn made on the campfire

13.  Vitamin D - Soaking up some sunshine!

14.  Reading

15.  Frisbee - Pretty sure my 2 1/2 year old can throw a frisbee better than I can.

16.  Dinner at Tamarack with the fam

17.  30th Birthday book - Chris put together a book (with lots of help from my mom) with a picture from each of my 30 years.  So, thoughtful and creative.

18.  Coach Purse - Thanks honey, how did you know? :)

19.  Kindle - I got a Kindle for my birthday and I love it!  It's so thin and lightweight, makes it easy to throw in my purse.  It was nice to get some reading in while waiting for my dr's appointment the other day.
Kindle 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology

20.  Kate Spade sunglasses - Thanks Sister!  I love them!

21.  New air mattress - Ours went flat when we went camping a few weeks ago.  Not very much fun or comfortable for a pregnant gal, like myself.

22.  Fireworks - LOVE

23.  Fishing off the dock - Didn't catch anything, but Parker had fun fishing with his dad and grandpas.

24.  Virgin Mojitos - Refreshing

25.  Making new memories

26.  Birthday Skype with Jenna and Finley - Fun way to catch up with friends who live too far away.

27.  Facebook birthday wishes - Facebook always makes you feel loved and remembered on your birthday.

28.  Sushi with my boys, when we got back to town.  Thank you for cooperating Parker!

29.  Watched a couple episodes of True Blood.  My new favorite addiction.

30.  Sleeping in my own bed - I love being at the cabin, but nothing beats coming home and sleeping in your own bed.


Happy Champagne Thursday!

29 and Holding...

29 and holding....until Sunday, when I turn the big 30!  I haven't really given much thought to turning 30, its going to happen whether I like it or not, right?  However, I haven't enjoyed being called 30 for the past 6 months or so, from my husband and sister.  I'm 29 until Sunday, then I'll accept the fact that I'm 30 and say goodbye to my 20's.

Don't forget to wear sunscreen!
I'm looking forward to a weekend celebrating with my family, at one my favorite places ever, Flathead Lake.  

Happy Champagne Thursday!
