At 9am, this showed up at our house:
It was around 100 degrees and felt even hotter with the heat index, so we had to take a lot of heat stroke prevention breaks in the air conditioned house.
Mary came into the bounce house for a few minutes, and she thought bouncing around with me was hilarious. She spent most of her time inside, though.
Jonathan gave me my birthday gift a few weeks ago, which is a new camera. They also got me a new pink and teal iPhone case that Jackson picked out himself, which I opened right before having cake. My birthday card was very appropriate considering the number of cake pops are children have consumed in their short lives:
After the kids went to bed Jonathan and I were talking about the first time I flew out to Colorado to visit him and see if we were really interested in each other beyond our phone conversations. I flew out to visit him the week I turned 24 and spent that birthday with him. For my birthday we took a motorcycle ride through the Colorado National Monument (National Park) and ate Mexican food. Birthdays are celebrated much differently now, but I appreciate how much time and effort he puts into making it special. We still have such a good time, and he does such a great job of making me feel loved.
