Happy Birthday to Me!!

Well, today is my birthday & I'm up crazy early. I kinda enjoy when this happens though - the house is quiet & I get to be by myself for a little while. That's one of the reasons I enjoy my walks so much. Don't get me wrong, I ADORE my children, but it's nice to have a little time alone with your own thoughts instead of constantly worrying about everyone else's needs.
Today should be kinda busy. We're watching my niece for a few hours this morning while my SIL runs in a 1/2 marathon (who know, by this time next year - maybe I'll be running with her). After that, my Mom's work is having their family day & she's invited us to go with her. It's usually pretty fun for the kids, they usually have games, blow-up stuff, & a little mini train for the kids. Brock & Alyssa have plans to bake me a birthday cake this morning, so after the family day, my parents will probably come over for some cake (they live next door - which is GREAT).
This evening my SIL is watching the girls so that Brock & I can go out for my birthday. I think we'll probably catch a movie & get some dinner. We had a blast at the pumpkin patch yesterday, except I got stung by a yellow jacket. They had a lot of neat stuff. We couldn't convince Alyssa to go through the straw crawl though - she's a bit of a scardy cat. The girls really enjoyed the petting zoo, I think their favorite was the Shetland (sp?) Pony. The pics I put up are the girls picking their pumpkins from the field that the hayride took us to. This was the last thing we did buying mums & heading home. We did get up our little scarecrow display, but I haven't taken pics yet - I'll post them later. I'm sure this weekend won't be great for my weigh-in on Monday, but it's only your birthday once per year - right.

Happy Birthday! I'm so glad you all enjoyed the patch. Can you send me the name of it? We've been to others, but never one in Warren Co.... Enjoy your date!
