Birthday Time!

Today is my 26th birthday!  Thanks to all of you who were encouraging about my new age, although many of you thought I was turning 30.  I meant I was one year closer to 30 now, instead of 20. 

One of my birthday gifts was a new blog design...don't you love it?!  Julie did an awesome job and was so helpful with everything!!  Thanks Julie!

My Mom and Phil flew in to celebrate with us, but sadly they have to go home tomorrow.  We have had a great week!  Yesterday we went to Discovery World for my birthday.  We had a blast!  It is like a hands on museum.  That's the best way I can describe it.  It was so amazing, and Eric and I both want to go back so we can actually read about the exhibits, and look a little bit longer at them.  We went yesterday because we thought it would be busy today, and I am glad we did.  It was practically empty! 

Here are some pictures of what we saw and did...

I totally touched the sharks in the picture above!!  I thought they would be soft, but they were rough like sandpaper!  We also saw the Les Paul exhibit...any guitar fans out there?  It was really neat! 

So far 26 hasn't been so bad...but I will let you know how I really feel 364 days from now!

Glad to hear I wasn't the only one who thought you were turning 30. Guess I should read slower :o)

Cool museum! Guitar fans - oh yeah. Grew up with guitar players in my house - and I played for a few years. I can still bust out a few tunes myself!

Happy, Happy birthday. Great new design!
