Yep, that's right, 29. I have a feeling this is going to be my vintage year. I'll look back and say, "29, now that was a good year."
I just happen to have been born on the greatest holiday ever to have a Birthday on, Pioneer Day. Here is why:
1. There is a parade EVERY year.
2. Most everyone has the day off.
3. It's not such a big holiday that it ruins your birthday.
4. Rodeo + Pioneer heritage = I can wear my cowboy hat and not feel like a poser.
5. Fireworks

Do YOU get all that on your birthday? Didn't think so.

First in the parade were these guys:

I cried when they marched pass.

They were followed by these guys:

More crying.

Isla, perfecting her wave as the Beauty Queens passed.

My sweet neicies walked around the Farmer's Market with us and couldn't resist the face painting. Do you blame them?

Ah, yes, the Rodeo. What can I say, I love the rodeo. It's exciting and funny and they sell real navajo taco's on fry bread. I couldn't have asked for more.
p.s. check out the photo bomb in the background! Thanks guy for making this one photo picture perfect.

p.p.s. Ben is my hero. He is the real reason I enjoy my Birthday every year because he does all the little things that make it special. Thanks hon, I love you.


  1. Happy Birthday, glad you had such a great day! Little Isla is so cute, i really need to come up and see you guys!

  2. I'm so glad you like your birthday on the 24th! I was so upset the day you were born because I knew I was going to miss the big BBQ at the church! HA! (It was worth it to miss one BBQ to have you!) Love you sweetheart...Happy 29!
    p.s.To everyone else...I had her when I was...12..ish.

  3. you make the cutest cowgirl ever! I'm so glad you had a good b-day. By the way I cried too when I saw the soldiers and the missionaries. Two amazing groups! OH and how cute is Isla. can you believe she's 2 months? OH and you'd die at how big Finn.
