A Very Busy but Wonderful 38th Birthday

095My day started early with being woken up by gusty wind at 5am. Since I was awake I decided to go ahead and do dishes and laundry. Dan had decorated the house with balloons and a sign. What a nice surprise came with a knock at the door at 6:30am. Bishop Dalton and Jill were there with this beautiful and delicious breakfast.  WOW was I spoiled! I have the best friend in the world and her family is AMAZING!!! After breakfast I got kids off to school then got ready for the day. Bekah arrived and we got the other 2 kids off to school and the two girls and I headed into SLC to return the Bike Rodeo equipment I borrowed for Pack Meeting last night. We stopped and got Happy Meals and made it back just in time to get Laura from Kindergarten.  Laura and I ate lunch (Jaimee and Bekah ate on the road) and then we went up to school for the Wax Museum.

118Nathan had his Wax Museum today. He did a great job!  The girls loved it too!126

After the Wax Museum I finished a task I promised a dear neighbor I would complete (mowing down weeds). I love working outdoors! Just before I was finished mowing two friends showed up with gifts for me. A third friend brought flowers while I was out.



Still half the woman I used to be! I got on the scale this morning to make sure. SmileLast year on my birthday I hit the 50% weight loss goal and I’m thrilled to have maintained it.144I meet up with Dan at Macaroni Grill after work and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner before going to Jack’s High School Graduation. 219My best friend and her incredible family.  Jack is the Graduate and Student Body President.220230

Stace and Kirk are the chaperones and game people for the ALL night Grad Party. I offered to make a cake for Jack and his class for the night. Their theme is Senior Zombie Survivor, hence the cake. It was so fun to make. (I spent many hours yesterday baking and decorating it as well as pulling off a Bike Rodeo for Cub Scout Pack Meeting and a Play Group Picnic at the Park. The last few days have been CRAZY busy!)232

I think it turned out pretty well.  Jack loved it and that’s all that really matters!
