Hello people. I am now 36 years old. My big day was on Friday and I actually woke up feeling older! How does that happen? My back hurts, I've got wrinkles. sheesh! I guess I'm no spring chicken!
But, I do have one saving grace....Doug! He will always be MUCH older than me! :)
For my birthday weekend, he rented an awesome house for us in Estes Park. We took the kids up there on Friday afternoon and had a fabulous weekend. We all played and laughed and ate together. (Emphasis on the eating. ugh) And, the best part of the weekend was the Olympic Opening ceremonies! Woo-hoo! It was easily the BEST WEEKEND EVER!
I did learn a few things over the weekend...
1. Doug is awesome. He is so good to me and spoils me rotten. Sometimes he doesn't get the credit that he deserves. Sorry about that! :)
2. Kinsey does not feel cold. She and Doug went sledding and frolicking the snow while Ben and I hung out in the car. Apparantly he got his mom's "cold genes"!
3. Ben is capable of falling out of a bed and not feeling it. I guess he didn't get his mom's "pain genes"!
4. I wish I could be an Olympic athlete. Think there is any room for me on the old ladies curling team? I have my own broom!
5. Estes Park, and Colorado in general, is absolutely beautiful. I feel like I take it for granted sometimes. I am lucky to live in such a gorgeous place.
6. Microbrews at 7000 feet will do you in.
That is ENOUGH learning for one weekend. I am too old for life lessons!
