30 Years

I turned 30 back in October. I can't say that I was very excited, but the day went well - even with Abigail's doctor appointment and me having to work in the evening.... John left me flowers and a note before leaving for class.... I also spent the week trying to do something small most days like a friend of mine did. (Which - I think I still have a zoo trip with cousins and grandparents to post about.).... After the doctor appointment we just enjoyed being together as a family - per my request.

John surprised me by making me one of my favorite meals - gnocchi(sp??) I love the homemade stuff from my mother-in-law (compare all the ones I eat with it). John had her help (the chicken had to cook most of the day for the broth). While I was at rehearsal, he and Abigail went to grandma's to finish making it.
I was VERY surprised and loved it!! It made for a great ending to the day with my little family.

He topped it off with one of my favorite desserts: strawberries and cheesecake.

The other big birthday fun was an overnight to a resort. This is partly a big deal because it was the first time I left Abigail like that. I have been away from her for work, but John was still home. She also was left with Grandma one night because we were out late and would have been dropping her back off early the next morning.
It took me awhile to decide on going, but I am glad we did. We found a last minute deal on Hotwire.

John slowed down as we turned in because he already knew I would be getting the camera ready to take a picture.

Here was the view from our room.

We pretty much did nothing, but enjoyed being together. Here are some fun views from walking around the resort.

We even went all out and ordered room service.

Minus getting stung by a bee while relaxing in the pool, it was a fun time. After checking out of the hotel, we went to Arizona Mills Mall. We ended up with a few fun things, including the Mickey and Minnie Abigail sleeps with now.... However, I was very happy to be back with Abigail.
