On Monday, I turned 30. It seems like a big number -- there's always something significant about starting a new decade -- but I like the way it feels so far. My 30's are going to be awesome!

The day itself was absolutely wonderful. Even though we had just gotten home from a camping trip the night before and the loads of laundry were screaming my name, I decided to pack up the kids and head to the beach. The day was gorgeous, the sun was shining, our sand castle was kicking butt and taking names, and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, my mother-in-law and JP's grandparents showed up with a picnic lunch, balloons, sunflowers, Caribou coffee, and chocolate cupcakes. Yes!

We didn't get home until almost 3pm, but miraculously Rosie stayed awake the whole car ride home, then she and Ruby took big long naps. I managed to get 4 loads of laundry done before JP came home from work earlier than normal with Thai food for dinner. After eating our fill, the girls and I made cupcakes, then we all cuddled on the couches for family movie night. We rented "We Bought a Zoo," and it was great. I can't imagine a better 30th birthday.

Can you guess which two cupcakes Ruby decorated? 

Thanks to everybody for the birthday wishes & cards -- they were the cherry on top to my wonderful day!
