My Golden Birthday!


What a day. We had to get up early for our Primary parade and carnival but don't worry my father called at 7am anyway (does the man know me at all?).

After the Primary activity we went home and Shawn bestowed many gifts upon me including: a guitar, a CD, a DVD and a teapot that matches my kitchen. I LOVE all of them because, I once had a very cheap guitar that was nearly impossible to play and I've wanted a nice one for a while, I like Fergie because her music makes me want to move, I love Bridget Jones Diary because it is just a great movie for many reasons and with our ClearPlay it'll be wonderful to own and quite frankly I like to accessorize my themed kitchen (I guess I'm like my mother.)

After we opened gifts we went to Deer Creek Reservoir to kayak. I'd never done it before and I really enjoyed it. It was totally fun getting splashed by the wakes of the boats passing by. No actual action shots because we might have tipped so I left the camera behind...but we didn't tip.



Bridal Veil Falls was on fire (well not the falls themselves but you get the idea). Which was pretty crazy to see since it wasn't that far from the road.



For dinner we went to Happy Sumo with Amy Lindseth and April and George Gallagher and let me tell you I was in Heaven. I LOVE HAPPY SUMO. It makes me happy. I love tempera veggies, I loved the Vegas roll, the sunset roll, the panda roll and the edemame.



To top it all of we had Costco chocolate cake which we're still eating, I had some for breakfast. It was a great birthday.

Your mom must've had to do a lot of math in her head to have you come exaclty 1 day less than a year after Mary. So you 2 could have your Golden Birthdays the same weekend!!! To bad your not out here, we could've celebrated yours and hers together! As for Happy Sumo, Benj is jelous. He used to go there Every Day at Lunch time with Joel and Peter when we lived there. Your Lucky!!
