my birthday in {mostly} pictures.


wow.

i had an overwhelmingly wonderful day yesterday.  here's a big ol' thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday via blog, facebook, text, phone call, or in person.  i felt the love & i'm still feeling all warm & fuzzy.  it's nice to know people care, ya know?  and now i know.  so thanks for that!

the whole weekend was dang near perfect.  sam's sister jodi & her husband jason came up from portland saturday night to kick off the celebrations.  there was good food, a movie & lots of fro-yo.  then sunday was all about the bbq, a whole heckuvalotta cake & a walk to the park.  that was one of my only requests... to get outside & enjoy our amazing weather & play in the park.

here are the highlights.


{did i mention the day included lots of cake?  i wasn't joking.}


{we played some around the world & apparently parker's tactic was to distract the competition by flashing them.  it worked... i was totally thrown off my game.}


{so i may be a year older, but i still got some killer moves.  be jealous.}


{parker loves his auntie.  loves her.  there was a pretty good amount of giggle snorts outta him while they were playing & it pretty much killed me.  deeeeeaad.}


i couldn't have asked for a better day!

but now it's time to shift gears & get ready for another day of celebrating because today is in-between-birthdays-day.  tomorrow is SAM's birthday!  i have a few tricks up my sleeve for the big day & just might even go for round two on the cake.  can you ever have too much birthday cake?  no, no you can't.

and lastly, a bloggity sidenote:  how do ya'll like the new blog design?  i've been wanting to switch things up for a lonnnng time but was having a hard time saying goodbye to the old header.  i'm really loving the simplicity & cleanness of this one though... i think it's much more me.  hope you guys like it!

i'm now accepting your vote clicks as belated birthday presents!
