My Birthday!

I turned 35 this week!  I felt celebrated in many ways...

Last weekend Paul and I went on a date for dinner and to see a play!  That same weekend Grandma and Grandpa T and Javonte were in town and they celebrated with a delicious Reese's DQ cake and took these sweet pics!

On Tuesday, my actual birthday, it was "Target Day" at the high school where I teach  (It was a 9 period day instead of 7, with the first two hours being dedicated to helping students who needed extra help).  This meant that I went in early, had a large gap in the middle of the day, and then went in later that usual in the afternoon.  I got to volunteer in the kiddos' classrooms and eat lunch with Larkyn, but I also got the bonus of having lunch with Colton because of the weird schedule at Eastview!!

I also got the most beautiful flowers delivered to my desk at Eastview!!!!

Summer made me feel super special all day with lots of happy birthdays, a sweet note and a puzzle scavenger hunt!

While the rest of my birthday Tuesday was pretty normal (piano lessons, soccer, Bible study....) I couldn't wait for the end of the week when my kiddos would be home for school for MEA break!!!!!  I roped them into going hiking with me for a birthday outing on Thursday :).  They didn't mind too much!

Colton found a giant clam shell!

Larkyn was so excited about her acorn collection!

Summer found a massive roll of bark.

We had a blast hiking on and off the beaten path.  All three kids enjoyed it best when we went of the trail exploring and they had to find their way back to the trail!  They also loved finding walking sticks (crutches) and pine needle pom-poms!

I love these three and am so grateful for every moment I get to spend with them!!

On Friday night, we went out to Olive Garden as a family to celebrate!  It was DE-licious!  I love family time!  Summer made the sweetest book for me of poems/pictures of things she likes to do with me!  The following day, Saturday, we went to Sever's Corn Maze and Fall Festival.  It was the most PERFECT fall day and I loved getting to spend time together as a family!

I am looking forward to Friday morning, when my mom, sister, and I are going out to brunch to celebrate!  I am so grateful for so many amazing people in my life.  I am so blessed!
