The 31st was my birthday and I must say that this is the first birthday that I have had in a LONG while where I haven't been dreading the age. I think it's because I finally have a baby and each year before this I was always thinking, "Oh great... I'm 26 and don't have a baby. Oh great... I'm 27 and don't have a baby." So it was kinda nice to not wake up feeling a little sad about the day. This is also the first birthday I've been able to spend with my family since I turned 20. So I really enjoyed that too.
The Friday night before my birthday Mason took me out for sushi and shopping. Then Saturday morning we went to the Mesa temple. We've never been there and I am really wanting to make sure that we go once a month for this whole year. It was the first time we had done sealings too, so that felt special.
Then we came home and had our family party. We had a picnic in the backyard and then played a riveting game of croquet. I think that was the first time many of my family members have ever played that game. We had a fun time!

Happy Birthday Mommy!!
The rest of the fam minus Grandma and Darci.
I love these two boys so much. And I love this picture so much.
The game I was telling you about.
I hope I don't have a pyro on my hands. :)
Happy Birthday to ME!!
