Daddy's B-day

Sorry no pictures, but we celebrated Matt's 29th birthday today.  We got Applebees Carside to go since the kids were CRAZY today.  Poor Matt didn't have the best of birthdays but there is always next year and who doesn't like wings from Applebees!!!!

Turning the BIG 3-0

I am having an issue admitting it, but I turned the big 3-0 this year.  I did watch Rachael Ray where Jessica Simpson said "being a young 30 year old is better than being an old 20 year old" hm...I am still waiting this theory out.  Matt was sweet and bought me roses and Bruegers bagels and then also had a few friends over and ate Dairy Queen ice cream cake (which I also had on my 20th birthday thanks to my sister)  I am sure being 30 will be great...it just is taking a bit to get used to!
Me and my cousin Kelly...look at her cute baby bump!

Roses and Bruegers on the day before my birthday-Thanks hubby!

Mommy's First (&possibly last!) 5K

I ran a 5k today.  Could possibly be my last one.  It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the most fun I have had either.  My family, well my sister and her husband and his family ran the 5k.  It was part of Nickle Dickle Days.  What an awesome name huh?  We got sweet shirts that say Nickle Dickle Days as well!
After running we rented a campsite and hung out all day, even though it was chilly outside!  We brought Jackson with us and paid a babysitter to watch Nora at our house.  Jackson loved hanging out with everyone. 

People who ran the race (minus Wendy)...Keith, Kyle, Jenny, Ashley, and Me

Grandma Nora's 90th Birthday

We celebrated my Grandma Nora's 90th birthday.  We had a family party at my parents house.
I know I have mentioned before but I think it is pretty cool that Jackson is 0, I am turning 30, my dad is 60 and my grandma is 90.  She was excited to see the family and enjoyed being out and about for the day.
