My birthday

I had a great birthday (as far as getting older and enjoying birthdays goes!) that started with Jack making me a big glass of chocolate banana milk for breakfast. Ryan watching me clean the house and telling me I really should just be laying in bed all day (didn't offer to help clean but let me know the mess would be there waiting for me when I got out of bed tomorrow and it was no longer my birthday), lunch with Gavin, Adam and Cami at Cheesecake Factory, playing the wii with Ryan and Hadley, 3 hours of spa treatments-- massage and facial, dinner at Hire's with all the kids ( not so enjoyable...all of them were tired and REALLY loud!) and then watching Confessions of a Shopaholic video with the 3 oldest kids. It really was a fun day and it was so nice to have Gavin take the day off of work to let me go get pampered.

Birthday cakes are tricky at our house. It's hard to find a place where Morgan and Griffin don't get into them before we are ready to sing and blow out the candles. We weren't very successful this year.

This was my big birthday present from Gavin. Now I just need to learn how to do some stuff with it...or there's always auto mode!
I am finally starting to feel old. Gavin was talking to someone and they asked him how old I was and Gavin said, "38". She didn't believe him and kept saying, "No, really. How old is Heather?" Which makes me realize 38 is OLD--at least I should be happy that she didn't believe I could be that old!

Can't wait to see your camera in person - you'll have to let me know if you like it. I think I am ready to upgrade this Christmas. Still loving my camera now but I would like to have more manual options and the capability to change lenses for gym meets.

Happy Birthday, Heather! Honey, you look fabulous. And 38 is not old . . . you'll realize that in a few years when you're MY age ;) Michael got me a fancy Nikon camera for my birthday last year, and like yours, mine's always on "Auto." Oh well. It's takes amazing pics.

What a fun July with so many birthdays in our family. You are a very young 38...must be all that running with 6 kids :)

That birthday cake is too funny. I'm glad you got a picture of it and glad you had a Happy Birthday!
