One of the cool things about Amy coming was that she brought baby Jet with her. I had seen him once in the hospital before we moved but was unable to touch him as he was still in the NICU and only mom and dad could touch him. So for the first time, I got to hold that sweet little boy! We pulled out our baby gear so she didn't have to lug stuff with her.
My throne! : )
Matty and baby Jet
On Sunday we went to church and then I had a Zumba interview that I would have rescheduled had I known the surprises that were in store for me that weekend! Amy and I left my boys with John later and we headed for the mall to look for some jeans. Little Jet was an angel. We had pizza for dinner at our house with Matt and Jaquelyn too and then I had to take Amy back to the airport. I was very sad to see her go but so happy we got to spend the weekend together! Did they do good or what?
Monday - my actual birthday - John and I took the kids out for a beautiful mountain hike where we could actually see Pikes peak in the distance! I could not believe we could see it from that close to Denver. The pack is amazing. I carried Ethan up the mountain, and Aaron down. I don't think I'll be carrying Aaron much - he's heavy!!! But for short distances it's not too bad. Finally, we made it to our last parenting class that we have been taking at Red Rocks Church and they had brought a birthday cake for me. : )

I opened my cards from my family and John's family and with my birthday money I have ordered 3 new Zumba tops and a pair of Zumba cargo pants! I'm also planning on getting a new pair of hiking pants and some trekking poles. I also got a nice package from Chelsee with shadow boxes that I wanted to display the kids artwork. Man - I am soooooooo blessed! What a FANTASTIC 30th birthday this has been. Thank you so much to everyone. I feel so loved.
