pictures worth {1000} words

my mom and nephew, austin, came to visit from nevada.
we had the best week together!

we canned strawberry jam with the new canner my grandparents got me
for my birthday {thank you, thank you, thank you, love it!}
we drank wine
colored eachother's hair
and i got hubby to put my feathers back in.
my nephew is a critter kind of kid
so everywhere we went,
we had to take some time to do a little digging.
 the neighborhood boys had an exciting game of football
hubby even got to relive some of his highschool football days
it was an epic game!
 we went to the coast for a night
to celebrate my turning the big 32!
 it was the most amazing time at the coast
i wish we could have stayed longer
the weather could not have been better!
our hotel was right on the beach
we ate dinner right across the street.
and afterwards we put the kiddos to bed with grandma
and hubby and i got a sunset beach date.
we've decided that we want to live on the ocean.
{it could happen}
 the next day we had breakfast and came home
celebrated our little buddy alden's 2nd birthday
and then had a huge bbq for my birthday, again.
{yeah, my birthday lasted about 4 days, it was awesome}
and as if that wasn't enough
in between all that fun and excitement
we shopped till we dropped {literally}
took the kids to see cars 2
dined out multiple times
basked in the sun
mom read an entire book
we got pedicures
and did i mention we ate...cause we did...alot.

it was the best birthday week a girl could ask for.

thanks momma and austin for coming to visit!
until next year...
