Birthday Celebrations!

This past weekend we wanted to get out of town, to do something for my birthday. We were thinking about going to DC, or San Fran but in the end we decided to go to Salt Lake and visit my Dad and the family. Nothing beats spending time with family. It was a great trip. My brother Takoma who I haven't seen since we got married also came down from Wyoming to hang out with us. I was so excited to see him and wanted to take pictures but there is something wrong with teenagers they don't like having their picture taken. My sister Lauren is the same way I just don't get it. My dad and I tried so hard to sneak in a picture but we always just got this.......

After a million attempts to get a picture I was giving up. Then out of now where, I think he felt bad after a while, he decided to let me have one....what a nice brother :)

On Saturday we met up with Tom, Marie, Megan and Bailey and went up to Park City to go on the Alpine slide and their new coaster ride. The alpine slide has kind of been a tradition for my
birthday and like always it was SO much fun.
Later on we went out to our favorite Gelato Cafe...why is it our favorite one? B ecause they have great gelato and an amazing table that we love playing "I Spy" on....

My goal one day is to make one of our own.

They put a new piece in every week and if you can guess which piece it is you get a free gelato. My sister guessed the new item. That just tells you how often we go there. :) My little sis Mari starting pouting when we got there because someone else was at the table so we hung out until it was vacant.
After gelato we played games until about one in the morning. There was an annoying fly buzzing around and I guess...I just found out that my dad is a pro fly killer. He swatted the fly and it hit Greg on the forehead and died. :)
On Sunday we went to church, came back for linner and took a bunch of pictures before me and Greg had to head to the airport.

Being goofy.

On Monday night Greg and I went out with the Lows and Withers. We went out to eat and bowling. It was a blast.Some how I was an amazing bowler that night I must have just had a special birthday touch.
The girls and guys competed against each other and sadly the boys won so as a result the girls have to perform a belly dance or something...which I technically never agreed to because I was in the bathroom. :) ..Maybe the guys will forget. Cross your fingers. We love our friends!! Thanks guys for the great night and making me feel special!!!

On the 28th Greg planned a special day with just the two of us... it was tons of fun.
Thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes!!
