Weekend of Birthdays!

So my birthday, and one of my best friends here in Cedar, birthdays are the 2oth and 21st of March. We kicked off our birthday celebrations by having a surprise party for Natalie, ya know to welcome her into her 30's! It was a blast! See Nat 30 isn't so bad and you really don't have to wear those granny panties, wear what I got ya instead!!!!

Saturday I started off the day by getting a well deserved Pedi with my(soon to be sis) Jenny! Then we, meaning Bry, his parents and I, headed down to St. George for a some Texas Roadhouse! It was great as usual. I even got the added bonus of sitting on the saddle.
After dinner we went and did a little shopping. The birthday fairy must have told my hubby exactly what I wanted- as if dropping my hints weren't enough! Finally I got a new digital camera. Happy day!
Sunday I got breakfast in bed, which is a tradition at our house! The funnest part is seeing my kids so excited to to it, regardless who's birthday it is! After, well more like during breakfast, was present time! I love it when my kids are so excited and thoughtful about getting gifts for others. It is fun to watch their excitement.

Showing off my loot......

Then that afternoon Bry made dinner for the fam, which included Bubba, Heather, and his parents. It was so good but to be honest it was much better not to have had to cook it! Then for the highlight.......Bryan with the help of Addy, made me a cake!!! I know big deal right, well it is a big deal to me because it is the first time he has ever done that! He hates when I say that, but the truth is that my birthday often falls on spring break and we are rarely home. Last year he took me to Vegas for the weekend, the year before we were in Texas, the year before that he took me to see Phantom of the Opera.... so ya see! I am not dogging him, I am praising him! I think it was so sweet and awesome that he made me my favorite cake! I love him to pieces(with or without the cake!)He was not thrilled to get his picture taken if ya can't tell.

Oh and believe me, it was one yummy cake! I am gonna request he make that more often!
