Birthday Celebration

I'm 28. I don't really feel any older, I kinda thought I was 28 already.  I'm sure things will be different next year, I'll feel all old and get wrinkles, but for now I feel like I gained a bonus year.  For Christmas we got Colby a bike, I've been wanting to get a carrier for Parker so I can ride a bike with Colby. I finally got my carrier, and then I wanted a new bike because the one I was using was Andrew's and old.  On Saturday morning (the 25th, even though my birthday is on the 26th), Andrew gave me the best blessing ever and let me sleep in. He snuck off with the kids and brought me home a new bike! I was completely surprised! I thought he just left to get french toast bread. I'm in love with this bike, and often beg Colby to go on a bike ride with me.

On Friday night I convinced Andrew to make my birthday cake. I was just looking forward to eating a ton of cake, but I thought it made sense to enjoy it with Andrew all weekend instead of just making it on Sunday and then having it just sit there and taunt me the rest of the week (I would have eaten the entire thing myself). The boys helped make it, and it tasted soooooo good! I had a great birthday, and can't wait until next year when I get to sleep in and get cake!
