A Very Happy (albeit wet) Birthday

Here's an overview of my birthday this past Saturday:

Yummy candy bar from Bryan with hand-decorated wrapping paper.

Yay! My mom made a bag for the parachute so now it doesn't have to live in a garbage bag. Thanks Mom!

Bryan also got me "Farmer Boy" so we now have the complete Little House on the Prairie series. I'm reading it now. :)

Amanda and Kegan (our friends and across-the-stairwell neighbors). Kudos to Kegan for not making anyone cry this year.

Whitney and Spencer

George (the duck pinata), Bryan, and Me
(Notice Bryan's cool new shirt that he got for reading three books for the summer reading program at the library! I have one now too, but I got it in a size small to wear after the baby is born, so I can't wear it yet.)

Allen, Cameo, Audra, and Jonathan

My adorable little nephew

Musical chairs

Musical chairs toward the end

The Parachute!
It was thunderstorming and pouring down rain all day which made me sad since I had planned to have the party outside on the lawn, but the rain did clear up long enough for us to go play with the parachute. Sorry to those of you who ended up with wet bums from the soaking wet grass.


Spencer, Rishard, and Bryan
(After us girls took a picture together, Spencer insisted on taking a man picture.)

Emily, me, and Whitney
I love these girls. We were all roommates when we were single. I miss getting to hang out with them all the time like we used to back then.
Also, thanks Mom! These are the shirts I got with the maternity top money you sent me for my birthday!

Chris (my brother-in-law) hitting what's left of George the Duck Pinata
(Sorry, these pictures are really out of order.)

Thanks everybody for celebrating my 23rd birthday with me! I had so much fun! It was so good to see all of you and enjoy some cake and ice cream together!

Hooray for Katie's parachute parties! I'm glad you liked the parachute bag and maternity tops. It looks like everyone had a wonderful time.

Yes, "fun was had by all."

Oh I'm sad I didn't make it. Spencer and I were planning on coming but then my parents came into town to surprise me for my birthday.

I hear you saw them at Costco!

You know, I don't think I've ever been to one of your parachute parties.
