Is 27 old?

Yesterday was my 27th birthday. Wow. It kinda snuck up on me although, I had my birthday on my mind for awhile. I like hanging on to the thought of a day completely celebrating me. There is no other day of the year like that, especially when you become a mother. It is never about you anymore. I had this thought when I woke up yesterday morning, and accepted that the day would be no different than any other day. Maybe a couple of phone calls of well wishes and a birthday card in the mail, but nothing hugely different. I decided to finish our room cleaning project, which is basically done. But I got a surprise. When my mom called to wish me a happy birthday, she said she wanted to drive up and take me to lunch. Yay! So, while Ethan was napping, I did the dishes, and then got ready for her to get here. We went to Applebee's. Here are some pictures from the restaurant:

Thanks for lunch Mom!
Ethan had fun blowing out my "candles"
Then we had fun rollling them!

When we got back from lunch, Ethan and I played outside for awhile. It was kinda windy, so I was surprised when Ethan found a butterfly on the grass. It actually let me almost pick it up. It flew off when I touched it. But it stayed around us for a long time. I tried to get pictures, but this was the best one. My camera isn't the greates for super up close photos. But I LOVE butterflies, so this was like a birthday treat from God. :)

When Jason got home from work, we went out to Pegasus Hobbies in Montclair to fool around. They have a race track in the back for remote control cars. Ethan could have watched it forever. I really liked it too. I didn't know they had things like this, so it was neat to see all theses little cars racing around like Nascar or something.

It was a really nice birthday!

I forgot to put a picture of Ethan up here of when we went to get ice cream with grandma after lunch. I will post it after this one. Thanks for a great birthday!
