For Griffin's birthday, we decided to celebrate with a little party at the park. It was very low-key. Just cupcakes and juice. The weather was perfect and the kids had fun playing. Griff loves to blow out candles so that was the highlight for him!

Vday and Bowling

What would Valentine's Day be without heart-shaped sugar cookies? They are a must in our house, so Griffy and I rolled up our sleeves and went to work.

Great rolling technique buddy.
Finished product, with some help from Griffin and friends.

Birthday wish granted.
Just a little excited about it.

We ended the night of bowling with a meal at Smashburger. SO good! Give it a try.

Happy Birthday!
Yesterday, our Griffy guy turned 3! My how the time flies. He was so excited for his birthday. Every time I would ask him what he wanted for his birthday he would say, "bowling." So that's what we did! He loves bowling and keeps asking to go again and again.

We love our little Griff and feel so lucky to have him as our son! He makes us laugh and keeps us on our toes! Literally. He runs everywhere. He is so curious and loves to ask lots of questions. He loves cars, trucks and trains. His favorite foods are chips, turkey sandwiches, asparagus, candy, strawberry shakes, spaghetti and cheese.
He likes to watch Clifford and Curious George. He loves to ride his plasma car around the house. And he loves to play with the cousins!

We love you to pieces Griffin!!

Three O

So, I turned 30 on the 30th - yes, my golden birthday! I'm kind of in denial and can't believe I'm actually 30. I mean, ten years away from 40. Halfway to 60. Ugh. But, what's a girl to do! I finally decided to look at the bright side and just be happy to be turning 30. It worked for a few minutes. I'm kidding. It's not that bad. I still think like an eighteen year old so I guess that's what matters! See, it's all mental ladies.

As for my birthday festivities, I had the best weekend!! It started off with my mom, Rach, Jen and I going shopping then to dinner Thursday night. Then, Friday Ry took me to a hotel for the night in Scottsdale. We shopped, dined at LGO, sat in the jacuzzi, relaxed, went out for breakfast and had a grand ole time! And to top it off, he surprised me with a very generous present! Lucky me. I told him to make my golden birthday big. He listened. Lucky him.

Blowing out my candle atop warm apple crisp. Yum.
On our way to dinner. Yes, I see the lovely zit on my cheek. I'm 30. I can't help it.
On my bday, we took advantage of the free deals. I got my free dinner at Joe's BBQ and a free dozen Krispie Kremes. Griff was loving it.
Tulips, my fav, from my parents.

Thanks to all my friends and family for the birthday wishes! It was a great weekend! Thanks, Ry, for making it big and to Rach for watching Griff overnight.
I guess 30 aint so bad.
