The Big Two Five

On Friday I turned a quarter of a century! It was a great rainy day here in Sacramento and although I had to work, it was wonderful because Aaron sent me these beautiful flowers at work!

That night we went to eat at the Old Spaghetti Factory with Wes and he treated for my birthday. Thanks! To celebrate with the family we went down to Alamo on Sunday and had a birthday dinner with Mom's famous Lasagna, my favorite.

Then we had Baskin Robbins ice cream cake. Mmmmm.

Taking out the candles. Everyone wanted some.

Cutting the cake!

Enjoying the festivities.
My favorite part of the night was looking through old pictures and coming across this!

Yes, this is Don showing off his behind in my bathing suit. Don't ask me why, but there was also one of me. Not quite as funny because I'm supposed to wear girls bathing suits. Matt must not have been home because he never would have allowed this. Random, I know, but when we came across this we couldn't help but share it. It's just so funny!
All in all, it was a great birthday and I don't feel any older.

Another Fun Day Off

Yesterday Anna, Chris and Kayden came up to Sacramento to visit and we had such a fun time. We went to eat at CPK (Chris bought-thanks!) and went to the mall and then came back to our apartment to relax and make cookies. The best part was getting to cuddle Kayden, who is now almost seven pounds.

Look at the difference! This is when he was still in the NICU.

Look at the happy family (the first family pic)

Our Day Off

It's been a while since our last blog, and since we don't have much going on, we thought we'd share a little from our fun day off. We started out the day around 11:30, sleeping in on the one day a week that we can. We watched a little of Amazing Vacation Houses (on Discovery Channel) and dreamed about which ones we will visit someday. We then decided to clean our apartment and get out our Halloween decorations as it is October first (11 days til my birthday btw).

I know it's a little scarce but we just began our collection a year ago.
We decided then that we needed to do something a little more on our day off. We went to Scandia Family Fun Center. (Remember we went there for my 13th birthday party, although we went to the one near Roseville this time). We played 2 rounds of rousing mini-golf (Aaron won both times, barely. He came back from behind on the 2nd round.) and spent some time gaming in the arcade. 2 games of air hockey (we each took one) and then had some fun winning a total of 41 tickets in which we bought a sour candy belt and gave the remaining tickets to some lucky kids. Too bad we forgot our camera. Luckily we did find the photo booth, and since we've always wanted to take photo booth pictures, we did.

Fun day. Too bad tomorrow is back to work and school...
