Family Birthday Celebration

Friends.  I am officially over the hill.  I'm 30.  THIRTY.  It was a fantastic birthday.  My family came to visit and kick off the birthday celebrations.  We started at Casey's Bakery, one of the highlights of our little town. Fantastic Dutch pastries and baked goods.  Delicious and not-so-nutritious.  Perfect for a birthday celebration.

Oh, and Casey's also has my all-time favorite coffee. Douwe Egberts.  Evidently, it's Dutch as well.  But Young Life friends, you can get your fill in Castaway Camp's kitchen.  Lucky you!  Pregnancy gurus, don't worry - it was decaf.

Mark surprised me with a cute little cake.  How fun is that?  

We burned off the pastry calories by going some serious thrifting in a nearby town.  I blew my birthday money on some treasures.  No pictures for this event, friends.  Thrifting is just too intense to stop and take pictures.

Later, we all went bowling.  Not to brag, but I was the best girl bowler.  The baby and I kicked some serious behind.

Sister picture.  My bowling ball is going to be the cutest.

Mark reserved a party room at a restaurant for supper and mom decorated the table with fun stamping things.  Leave it to my mama.  She is the party queen.  She even BRINGS parties to places.

We had cake for dessert.  Well, I did, anyway.  I may or may not have eaten straight from the cake...without cutting any slices.  

Don't judge me.  You get to do whatever you want on your birthday...especially your thirtieth.

I ALSO may or may not have had one of these cupcakes that my sister brought for breakfast the next day.  To those who have read my healthy food posts - I eat healthy on other days, so I can really celebrate these special occasions with sugar.  Moderation, folks...

And, believe it or not, this was only the start of the birthday extravaganza.  My family and friends are so good to me.  More to come!
