My Birthday!

Well yesterday I turned 28 years old, I really dont feel like I am that old because I certianly don't act my age! I was totally suprised yesterday morning when I woke up Zack gave me some vague instructions to get ready like I was going out on a date and not to eat anything, and to be ready by 8:30. He then took ALL of the kids and left to go to his parents. Then my friend Lisa came over and I was totally suprised. She planned with Zack to get my friends together and eat breakfast on my birthday! Then at 9 am my friend Missy came over and that was another great suprise. We went out to eat at IHOP and met my other friend Griselda. It was so much fun to have a girls date on my birthday, we even went shopping afterwards! Its been way to long for me to have a totally kid free morning with my friends, what a great Birthday Suprise!! Then after that Zack and I ate dinner together at Chili's while our other good friends B.J. and Christy let our Zy and Chazz play with their kids. I also got some cool messages today on my phone which was accidentally left at my mother in laws.....Thanks for the birthday wishes Taylor and Abble!
Each year on my birthday I take the time to reflect on my life and this year I have come to the conclusion that I am blessed beyond measure! I have a great family and extended family, a beautiful healthy baby, a loving husband and great friends. I am also blessed that our business is still going well in this struggling economy. I am so glad that I have the gospel in my life and that I know Heavenly Fathers plan of happiness for all of us. Thanks to all of the people in my life that make it such a happy one!

Family Fun!

We have been on a roller coaster ride of visits and visiting my family from Nebraska this month. It all started the last weekend of March with my Mom coming in town for Zoeys blessing and the next weekend my Oldest sister Heidi and her family, then I had my 10 year class reunion in Nebraska. I sure dont have any home sickness for my family right now I am satisfied with all of the fun I have had with them in the past 3 weeks. Now that will just have to last me until October. While in Nebraska I got to see my Dad(its been like 5 years!) That was wonderful, just to see him, I talk to him frequently, but a face to face beats that hands down. I also got to see my Grandma, my biannual visit to her. She was excited to see/hold Zoey and take some cute pictures. Other than that I have been playing catch up on cleaning up after company and getting back into the swing of things on my own. I almost forgot, thanks for the cute Easter dresses Dad and Sara, they are so stinking cute in them!
