Happy Birthday to Me!

My birthday was AWESOME this year. Thanks in a big way to Scott. He was so wonderful, helpful, and just plain old spoiled me. In the morning Emma had a field trip to the Thanksgiving Point Dinosaur Museum, so the boys and I went also. It was nice that Emma was with her class and Alan and Logan were free so I just had to pay for me. The kids all had a lot of fun and the museum is very cool. The boys and I got there before Emma's class and it took about 20 mins for them the warm up enough to actually go into the exhibits (it starts with outer space and it is a little dark), but once they warmed up that LOVED it. Emma had a lot of fun with her class. I really like her new preschool.Emma's class just as they got to the museum. I tried to give her space to be with her friends.

As soon as we were done at the museum I met up with Scott just off I-15 and traded him vehicles (and the kids) and then I rushed down to Provo to get my hair done. I always feel so much better after getting my hair done. Here is the result.I don't think I have ever had it this dark or short, but I really like it.

As soon as I was done at the salon I had to rush home and get changed so we could go to the Draper Temple open house. It was so beautiful and so fun to be there with the kids. As we were walking through the Celestial room Logan got very excited when he saw the chandeliear and said "Ah oh wha" and then he realized it echoed so the rest of the time in that room he kept saying "Ahh" really loud and then would wait so he could here it echo. Although it was a little irreverent mostly I thought it was sweet. After all aren't we all suposed ti be like a little child?

After the temple we took the whole family to Tucanos. Kids under 6 eat free and I had my free birthday meal postcard, so we only had to pay for Scott's meal. Logan fell asleep on the way there and then slept through most of dinner. We were sitting close to a goup of chinese tourists who kept trying to get Alan to take a picture with them becuase he is "just so handsome." He REALLY wasn't interested in having anything to do with them.

We got home just in time for me to change and go to Zumba (a totally fun South American style airobics class my friend Jenny teaches) and then Yoga.

I got back from the rec center just in time to shower, change and go to the Twilight movie with Scott. It was so nice to just sit, cuddle, and watch a girly movie. I liked the movie more than I thought I would and I think Scott felt the same way. I didn't realize how tired I was until we got home. I love super full days, as long as I don't have to many in a row.

I also got totally spoiled this year. Are you ready for this.... here is what I got: A super cute pink yoga mat, movie theater gift card, adorable needle holder, Wuthering Heights, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, microwave popcorn bowl, ped egg, oil spray pump thing, new hair, red lasagna pan, cute new red utensils, and a totally cute retro looking apron. Did I forget anything? Hope not. Thank you all for everything.

Happy Birthday Laura! What a great day...You look so good with dark hair, it makes your eyes look awesome.
So Paul did that exact same thing in the Rexburg temple celestial room, I thought it was cute too. Oh, and I love that you match your boys. When I found out I wasn't having a girl I was sad I couldn't match Anna & sister...but I found a bunch of cute matching boy rugbys, sweaters, and hoodies. It made me so happy!

Happy Late birthday! Where do you get your hair done?

And Tucanos is one of my favorites! We go there just about once a month. My faves are the mashed potatoes, tenderloin and sirloin! :)
