National Me Day

As I am sure you're well aware, It's my birthday. Well, actually it's tomorrow but I figured with all of that majorly depressing 10 year anniversary business and it being stake conference Sunday and all, I would just party it up on Saturday instead. We started the day out right with a spread of delicious donuts and an array of breakfast meats complimented by a bowl of fruit that mysteriously went untouched. I didn't take any photos because, well, as heavenly as a bacon topped maple bar is, it just wasn't a pretty site. I gorged and nobody really needs to see that! Then my family headed for the hippest place in town, the Bowling Alley! We had an awesome time although one game was enough for us. We all got schooled by a five year old and pigged out on curly fries and nachos. CURSE YOU BOWLING ALLEY CURLY FRIES!!! They were so good and yet, so bad... Then we played some arcade games. Eric won me a giant angry bird and we called it a day. Oddly enough, Bryce and I are the only ones not napping right now. Later tonight we'll eat something equally bad for us for dinner and top it all off with my yummy strawberry lemonade birthday cake. I'm determined to gain at least 10 pounds today. On a related note, is it wrong to be so excited that I am getting a single hubcap as a birthday present? Because if it is then I don't want to be right! My husband is so romantic... Here are some photos to appease the masses. In no particular order since I can't seem to figure out how to do that :)

This is as exciting as it gets around here people!

That's how he rolls...

Eric going for another one of his famous GUTTER BALLS!

Charlie and Hud were more interested in scarfing fries.
So was I but don't tell anyone!

Kensie took this one.
Am I the only one that feels awkward posting photos of myself??

Bryce was actually really good!

Showing off my sweet kicks and polka dot socks!

Bryce showing of His sweet kicks too.
P.s.- I told him to make a "cool" face!

This is my strawberry lemonade birthday cake I made last night.
I picked up each of those jimmies with tweezers and placed them one by one.
So tell me you love it or I'll hurt you.

This is the present I gave to myself.
Eric never lets me use the color printer so this is a big treat!
I was sick of looking at those ugly white laminate cabinets.
We can't paint so I figured I would cover them up with witty photos and quotes!
This is my fav by far! I've been laughing since I put it up.
It's small enough that from far away it just looks like the Mona Lisa.
Then you're like, "What's wrong with her face??" So, you go in for a closer look.
Then you're like, "Goo, It's Voldemort!"

This girl beat us. To. a. pulp.
Her final score was A hundred and five! The next closest was Bryce with Eighty Four or something.
Shameful, really.

Well, I think I am officially "old". It feels weird to say that I'm closer to 30 than 20. Oh well, I think I'll go eat some more bacon...

Back to the Berg

We took a mini vacay to Fresno over the summer so the kids could say they did something other than swim and sit at home during their summer break. They LOVED it! We went to King's Canyon to see the giant sequoias. We went to Morro Bay to visit with Nanny and Papa (Which I totally spaced and didn't get any pics with them! Lame!) We went to the Farmer's market. We played lots with Aunt Whitney, Uncle Matt and Uncle Kyle. Fun Swimming and water play and there was LOTS of playing with puppy Bentley! Hudson and Charlie are still found calling themselves Bentley and lagging out their tongues like puppies! Also there was randomly a giant gummi snake?...So here are the pics in random order!

This is us in front of General Grant

Sandy Sausage Toes!

The kids with my parents in that cabin thing in King's Canyon? Someone help me out!

Morro Beach with G-ma

Disregard the rusty busted swing and look at that chubby baby!

In Fresno, the Gummi worms are so big they can feed a family of five!!

The babies are snuggling!
If those aren't enough photos for you guys then I don't know WHAT will please you! Wow, that took FOREVER! Now I remember why I never post on this thing!

School is for

Bryce started 2nd grade and Kens started Kindergarten. Both were beyond excited. Me, not so much but they can't stay at home with me forever, right?
