This is it...

my LAST year in my thirties! I'd better make the most of it!

I woke up late today, and was greeted with a Happy Birthday song from Connor and a big hug from Aili. Breakfast was Crispix with milk (half of which Aili ate) and a big bowl of blueberries! (Gary offered to make me breakfast but I'm not really a big breakfast person).

The kids gave me their gift. They bought me a portable-sized Daytimer! I haven't had one in a few years, since I went electronic, but I keep forgetting to charge my iPAQ and then I'm stuck without access to my phone numbers and calendar! I'm a material girl - I need to TOUCH pieces of paper!!! :) It's a beautiful tan leather and measures only 5"x9"!!

Then Gary gave me his gift. Well, he didn't actually HAND it to me, but he did tell me that it was on order!! I got...............are you ready? An AF 50/1.9 D lens for my camera!! Woo Hoo! So very excited about that! I wonder if it will be in before my photo shoot on Friday?!?

Connor and I went out in the afternoon to buy him some new running shoes and when we returned home, Aili was still napping (it was 5:oopm!!). Her schedule has been off with late nights and waking later than usual. So I had a quick cat nap too! When we awoke, we went to my other sister's house for a BBQ! Two nights of no cooking - awesome! After eating, Connor wanted to jump in the pool. Well, not to be outdone, Aili had to go in too! Of course we had no swimsuits, as it had been raining all day! So they jumped in with their undies/shirts on! Teresa braved the cold with Aili, as we had not brought our suits either! Both were more than unhappy when we had to DRAG them out at 9:00pm!! Way past their bedtimes!

Unfortunately, not a lot of great photos tonight, but this one turned out cute:

Thanks for reading!
