I had a great birthday. I love getting calls and texts all day. I love having money now to go shopping! I love how sweet my boys were to me. Tyce sang "happy birthday to mommy" all day! I love that Parker took care of the boys so I could just relax for a day! He knows that birthdays were always special in my house growing up and that's what I expect from him (not expensive, but special). He ended the night by giving me a nice long back scratch, my favorite thing to fall asleep to! :) We were supposed to go out to eat Saturday night to celebrate but, due to the hurricane, Cheesecake Factory closed. So we're going to go out this weekend instead! Thanks for all the birthday wishes everyone! Here's to another great year in my 20s! :)

Jack and Josh each found these cute caterpillars and carried them around as pets for a while. Unfortunately, daddy ended up stepping on Josh's and got caterpillar blood and guts all over. Josh handled it surprisingly well! Good thing I took a pic before the massacre... Parker got frustrated setting up the tent by himself. I told him he can blame my dad for never teaching me how to do it!
It was definitely an adventure! I really would've had fun if it wasn't so dang hot and humid. Virginia summers are miserable, that's all there is to it. We so miss the west where it actually COOLS DOWN at night! But we made the most of it and the boys had fun and that's what matters.
The boys are now outside in their swim suits running around in the rain. We're supposed to get some strong winds and rain from the hurricane today/tonight but I'm hoping Parker and I can still go out tonight for my birthday!

Here's Josh concentrating on watering the grass (yes, he likes to water plants in his transformer costume)... Here's Jackson watering the flowers (yes, in cowboy boots)...

Parker and I love the Oregon coast, it's one of our favorite places... I was proud of my brave boys! The water is ICE cold!
We left the beach around 5 and went to Kylos for a YUMMY dinner, my halibut was to die for. It was a great day! It was a great trip! I miss everyone already but look forward to seeing everyone in December. Love you all!
