My Mother's Day / Birthday Weekend!

Okay, this may be information and/or picture overload, but I just can't help it. I had so much fun this weekend! Friday afternoon Hunter & Coop enjoyed some flag football at a friend's birthday party. Apparently Coop didn't understand the "flag" part - he was just tackling everyone.

Then Friday evening, I thought Dave was taking me to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant for my birthday. But he pulled one over on me because we ended up having a huge barbeque at my parents' house - and all of my favorite people were there! (I wish my sisters would have been able to make it, though). It was a wonderful "surprise" 30th birthday party! Even though I didn't turn 30 until yesterday... just wanted to make that clear :)

Saturday we spent the morning rooting for our brother-in-law's baseball team, then I went to a ladies' dessert social at church. More of my many favorite people were there, including my Nana, my mom, my aunt, and my best bud...Katy!

Ah, and then Mother's Day... a day that I have grown to love since I've been a mom. Not only do I get to honor my wonderful mom, but my kids and my husband honor me! And anyone that knows me knows that I love the attention. The day consisted of: church, a little baseball in my sister and brother-in-law's huge backyard, great food, and some Guitar Hero (which I am now addicted to. Honey, can we please get Guitar Hero?)

Lastly, here is a picture of our two new fish, Squirt and Chewy. We've had them for about two days now and they're still alive, so I'm hoping they'll stay that way for a good long time! Thanks to everyone who had a part in making my weekend so enjoyable. My friends and family truly mean the world to me...
