Remember back in February and March -- I took a MAJOR blogging break.
For the most part, I've kept up again and am enjoying it (blogging) again.
But, for today, I'm out of ideas. So, I was searching through some photos, and I came across some miscellaneous photos from early March to share....
1) March 1 was my BIG 35th birthday. For some reason, turning 35 was a big deal to me. 30 didn't bother me AT ALL....And, I'm around quite a few people who are really dreading 30....those of you whom I'm talking about -- Turning 30 is just fine. You'll make it through. I actually enjoyed it and looked forward to it.
Turning 35 was also fine....I have an advantage of living where I do -- most people have children younger than when I did (32). Therefore, since I only currently have one child and he's only 2, MOST are surprised that I did turn 35.
But yes, my birth certificate proves it. I was born in 1976.
And now, I'm closer to 40 than 30....
Anyways, Marc surprised me a few days before and told me he was going to take the day off from work so we could all hang out as a family. I was THRILLED!
We kept it low key....just how I like it.
Luke was surprised when he got up that morning to find Daddy at home....that meant hanging out with Daddy in bed, eating cereal and watching TV.
We went to Red Robin for lunch....a) We like it. b) It's a great place to take a kid. c) I had a "free" lunch for my birthday since I joined their "E Club."
(Sorry -- no photos to prove we were there....You'll just have to believe me).
Then, we all came home and took naps :)
And overall, I had the opportunity to just keep a day "low key" and hang out with my guys. What could get better than that?
The weekend right after my big ol' 35th birthday (March 4 - 6), Marc and I went away for the weekend -- to Wichita (yep, we really traveled far, didn't we?)....
My loving parents came to our home and stayed with Luke for the weekend.
I have ZERO photos from the weekend, but my dad did send me this photo of Luke and their dog, Anna....Luke LOVES Anna, and admittedly, this photo was very cute -- watching Luke lie on the floor with Anna before bed.
We went away for the weekend to a Family Life Weekend to Remember marriage conference.
We went to the same conference three years ago -- when I was pregnant with Luke. We enjoyed it and wanted to go again.
It's amazing what 3 more years into a marriage as well as having a child does!
We had some different things to discuss and talk about.
It was EXCELLENT and very needed.
We were EXTREMELY pleased to find out one of our speakers that weekend was Dr. Tim Kimmel.
Dr. Kimmel is the founder of THIS MINISTRY.
We first heard about Dr. Kimmel in November, 2009 -- upon purchasing our Christmas Tree.
We have grown to appreciate and overall like his parenting/family books.
Then, over the course of this past semester, we've seen him in a DVD series in our Sunday School class.
SOOOOOOOO -- when we arrived at the conference and he was one of the main speakers, we were truly THRILLED!
And, I have to say (and I'm sure Marc would agree) -- his speaking is as great as his writing!
That's the end of miscellaneous! Thanks for reading!
