It used to sound so old.
Doesn't sound so old anymore!
I had a wonderful thirtieth birthday week!
Shane and I went to Napa and San Francisco the weekend before my birthday.
It was such a fun trip!

Then on my actual birthday, Shane surprised me with a fun birthday dinner at Los Cucos with my family and friends. It was so sweet and so fun to spend my birthday with so many people that I love!

Then this past weekend we went up to Oklahoma with my family and our friends the Longs. We always go to Oklahoma the second weekend of November for the Broken Bow Folk Festival (which falls on or around my birthday every year, so fun)

Three of my four favorite guys...so sad Ryan, Tiff and the girls couldn't come this year.
Listening to some folk music
My dad and uncle Ken (who comes in almost every year from Florida to fish and go to the festival...yes, we love it that much :)

Avery's first s'more. There isn't a picture of Carson with his s'more because he threw his into the fire within seconds of us making it for him.
The Long's, love them!!
My sweet little family!
What a fun, fun birthday week I had. Lots of celebrating, I truly feel so loved.
Turning thirty isn't so bad after all!!

Flintstones, meet the Flintstones...

We're a modern stone age family!!
We had a couple of opportunities to wear our Fred, Wilma, Pebbles, and Bamm Bamm costumes, the first was at our Fall festival at church.
I made Carson and Avery's costumes out of some fleece, so simple, and we borrowed the Fred and Wilma from some friends, pretty cheap Halloween this year!
I know this pictures doesn't show it, but Carson loved being Bamm Bamm, especially since he got to hit things with a foam club. He called the club his, "Bamm bamm"

Hanging out with their buddy, Spidey
Halloween day we just hung out around the house,

Then went trick or treating with our cousins, and the Miller family.
Sweet Taylor, isn't she beautiful!!
They really do love each other this much!!
My attempt at a group shot
Best I could do this year
Trick or TREAT!!!
My little shy one, she wanted nothing to do with people dressed up in costumes.
Daddy helping the kids dig out the good candy :)
Digging in
Wow, what a haul for a two year old!
Happy (late) Halloween!!
