It was a four-day celebration to celebrate forty great years.
My parents stayed after Thanksgiving to stay with the kids while I stole Dave away for a couple days.Have I mentioned how much I adore them?

This picture deserves some explanation:
When I was racking my brain last year trying to figure out a great way to celebrate the big 4-0, Dave claimed all he really wanted was for me to grow my hair out. So I did…but also put in some extensions for the big day. Oh man, I’m just too old to have super long hair, but hey, when that’s the wish of a guy turning forty…

Now I’ve taken both my favorite boys to the top of this mountain. (Click here to see Max’s turn.)

Happy birthday baby. And many more to come.

  1. I'm sorry … but that first picture where none of your kids are looking at the camera in perfection has made me feel better today 😉 That would be nine tenths of mine (I tease them about being photo-bombers). I love it.
