Britt's birthday

So, today was my 34th birthday. I know it's shocking to most of you because I just seem so much younger, right?? :) But, yes, I am now 34. We had a great family day so I had to post. Started out this morning with Addy and Baz bringing my presents to me in bed. Barry's gift was a toaster. A toaster?!?!? We've been married almost 9 years (in 5 more days) and I get a toaster for my birthday? I'd have been thrilled if we even needed a new one, but the one we have is fine... bless him. But I got a nice card. Addy helped pick out a card and a present for me too - a Sleeping Beauty card that plays her song when you open it up and a BARBIE! Hmmm... dad really did let her pick out her own presents. Cute.


Well, we actually did get something new this week. Convenient for Barry...he says a new car was my birthday present. Timing was right for that one! We traded in our VW Jetta for this 2006 Ford Freestyle. You'll have to look it up for all the details - basically a crossover between SUV and minivan (which I wasn't opposed to). It can seat 6 or lays down for lots of storage. So far, so good. We like the look of it and definitely the space factor.



After doing some weeding, we all went on a bike ride down past Utah Lake. A friend from Barry's work invited us to go boating this afternoon, so we got our nephew, Ryan (visiting from England), and away we went! We love going boating. Here are some pics.





After a marathon showering, we headed out to McGraths Fish House for a birthday dinner. Good day! Tomorrow we're off to Wolf Creek for a week - more posting later!

Happy Birthday Brittany. I am 19 years older than you so you are still just a baby in my book. A toaster hmm??? Nice car. Good luck on gas buying! :-)

I thought I was old. 34 you must feel like an old woman. Love the the car and I bet the toaster will make really yummy toast. Baz is very creative. Love you guys. You will have to take a test drive to Saint George. Please bring the TOASTER!!! Happy Birthday Brit!!!

Love,

Happy Birthday Brittany! You don't look a day over 20. Sounded like a great birthday.

Happy happy birthday! It must be so hard for our husbands to come up with creative presents year after year (on top of other presents for Valentine's Day, anniversaries, etc.) The toaster is great! Poor Steve didn't know what to give me last year for my bday so he gave me one hour of manual labor for each year of my life (so that was 32 hours). So far I have used 10 of those hours for painting our house--another 22 to go!
