My Birthday - October 15th

I had a lot of fun celebrating my 31st birthday this year!  I don't have a lot of pictures, but I do want to remember the fun things we did.  It started the weekend before my birthday when Paul and I went on a day-date on Saturday (thank you to Grandma and Grandpa K for babysitting!).  We started off with a long hike at Lebanon Hills Regional Park on the BEAUTIFUL fall day, with lots and lots of uninterrupted talk time as we hiked and enjoyed the fall color.  We then had a late lunch/early dinner at a yummy Mexican place.  Then we headed to Sever's Corn Maze and Fall Festival in Shakopee.

The sign was super cool and made out of pumpkins/gourds etc!

Not only did it have a fun monkey show, pig races, rare animal petting zoo, and TONS of other things, but it also had the coolest corn maze I have ever been to - it was MASSIVE and the theme was firefighters so the maze had the shape of a fire engine. You got a map, and together worked your way through the maze to find the 26 letters and different cool facts.  So fun.

 We ended up at DQ for my favorite pumpkin pie blizzard and then home to watch old episodes of our favorite (and only) show we follow - Amazing Race :). 

On my actual birthday, I didn't have to cook at all, as my mom took me out to eat for lunch and Paul took us out to eat for dinner!

The weekend after my birthday, we my mom, sister and I went on a day long shopping trip to the Eagan Outlet Mall - fun girls date and fun new clothes!  Then we met up with the boys and kiddos for dinner at Five Guys burgers and shakes - delicious!  After we put the kids to bed, we played Settlers of Catan. 

It was a great extended birthday celebration!

Glad you enjoyed your birthday so much! It was such a blessing to shop with my two girls as we just don't get to do that too often.
