My 30th Birthday - and Anthony Kim

So...I turned 30 at the beginning of July....which honestly, I was thrilled about.  I might be crazy...but I actually seem to always look forward to being a year older.  I'm not sure why, but I've never been upset about aging...and I was so ready to be out of my 20's.  

So you're probably asking what this has to do with Anthony Kim and a picture of golf balls.   Well...I will always remember my 30th birthday...mainly for the reason, that it was one of my husbands favorite days (and not because it made me officially 3 years older than him! - at least for the next 7 weeks).  We went out to a little Italian restaurant down the street from us in Bethesda.  My birthday was the same day as the first day of the AT&T National Golf Tournament, which was held a few miles from our house.  One of Mike's favorite golfers, the up and coming Anthony Kim, was in first place at the end of the this particular day.  As we are sitting in the outdoor seating area of the restaurant waiting for our food, Anthony Kim walks by holding hands w/ a pretty girl....Mike says "Hey Anthony", and Anthony responds with a nice "hello".  Mike is thrilled that one of his favorite athletes was only a few feet away, acknowledged him, and walked into the same restaurant where we were celebrating my birthday.    We enjoyed our dinner, then Mike and Damon went to get some golf balls out of the car for him to sign for them.  We are excited that for some random reason, Mike had grabbed the camera as we were leaving the apartment....only to find out that the battery was dead.  I suggest that he uses his i-phone...and he gets excited.   Mike and Damon go inside to ask for an autograph and picture....Mike is about to take a picture of Damon and AK, and the cute girl offers to take one of all 3 of them...she holds the phone up about to snap the shot...and his battery on his phone dies.  Talk about disappointment.  Mike was was so sad...but he got the golf balls signed, and we went home.  What a great birthday!  

Those who know golf or like golf might think this story is cool....but otherwise, it's just the most boring post ever.

Missing good friends....

Dear Sweet Jackie, Elise, and Elijah.....we sure do miss you!    

I knew that when I was looking for pictures for this post, I wouldn't have any problems finding any.  I could basically click on any month, from the last 3 years, and be guaranteed to find pictures of our little kids playing together.   

We have done SO many fun things with these sweet friends.  We've also gotten so many rides, yummy meals, emergency laundry cleaned, and did I mention they gave us a lot of rides?   I don't know what I would have done without you Jackie.  I love you so much and miss you more than you'll know!   We hope you're loving being back with family in Hawaii!  

We got rained on

one of our last play dates...   :(

A few pics...

I just love this little profile picture

My Aunt Laurie made this amazing blanket.  I absolutely love it. 

For as much as I love taking pictures, I seriously think this is the first picture of the 4 of us together.  Our baby is 2 1/2 months old, and I never took a picture of all of us?  What kind of a mother am I?  and this was Damon's idea!
