My Birthday Weekend
I didn't get any pictures that weekend but I wanted to blog about it so I could look back and remember how great it really was. I can honestly say this last birthday was one of the best I have ever had. The last couple birthdays have sucked pretty much so it was so nice to get a really good one for a change. My sisters took on the task of having my kids sleep over their house for the whole weekend. Getting them there was quite a challenge. I was going to meet my sister Kim at my sister Stephs work in South Jordan when I noticed my van was getting REALLY hot like almost in the red zone. The more I went the higher it got so I hurried and pulled over to prevent it from touching the red zone. I called Kamrin and he was just finishing up work and was going to come to my rescue. He had me check the coolent which was great so he figured it didn't like going up hill on a 105 degree day. I inched to the next light and got off the uphill road and started a different way and sure enough it went down a bit. It still was hotter then I liked but at least it wasn't to the red zone. I made it to my sisters work but was very worried of sending my sister and 4 kids with the van. She told me to go ahead and would let me know if there was any problems. I headed home to shower and meet up with Kamrin. Luckily she made it home with no more problems with the van and Kamrin and I got to enjoy her nice new car for the weekend. When I got home we got ready and went to the new movie theater at Valley Fair mall. It is now our favorite! We ordered dinner and took it into the movie with us. We went and saw The Heat which is now one of my favorite movies! I absolutely love Melissa McCarthy and that movie had us laughing from beginning to end. We then came come and crashed for the night. The next day was my actual birthday. I went with my friend Angel and we hit a few yard sales which I love doing but don't get to do much cause its not worth it having to drag 4 kids along to do. I hung out with her and found some awesome stuff until 1130 then headed home. Kamrin got ready then we headed to Lehi to try Popeyes Chicken. After waiting AN HOUR to get our food we ate it in the car cause they were so busy. It was very delish but waiting an hour was very frustrating. I couldn't go my whole birthday without seeing my little ones so we went and hung out at my sisters house for a while to get me some loves from my babies. We then headed back to the movies and saw Fast And Furious 6 in DBOX. I had never experienced DBOX so it was really fun and the movie was great! I love me some Rock, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel :-) Kamrin then took me to my grandmas house to see her. It was so nice visiting with her and my mom. I sure love those ladies. We were both hungry by then and my husband knows me best and took me to The Cheesecake Factory!! Best way to end my birthday!! I had been up since 630am so was pretty beat so we came home. The next day we slept in and had a lazy morning then went and picked up the kiddos. It was such a nice break and I felt so spoiled the whole time!!!
