Phil's Happy 30th!

Phil turned the big 30 this year. He gives me a hard time about being 30, cause I married a younger man. So this was the most jammed packed day ever. It was a total blast!
It started with making German pancakes, OJ and out the door by 8:30am. I was on a tight budget. I had $51 to spend including gas money. We pulled it off with $0.60 left over!
We first went to the Natural Bridge Wildlife Safari. It's the coolest place, you drive around at 5 mph and get to feed tons of animals. Let me tell you it's worth the $16 a person. Boston was free thank goodness. I hope you enjoyed the video. I seriously thought I was going to have a panic attack. WOW! Talk about invading personal space.

This place was AMAZING. Boston had a blast. We had a blast watching her enjoy it. Kids bring so much joy into everything. Especially Boston, she's all or nothing!

Can you say LLAMA?

Our first family picture ever. Brooks is hiding in the red neck sling Phil made.

Boston was hugging the pop belly pig, she liked him until he tried to jump on her and knocked her down.


Then we went to Jack in the box, used my coupons and got $21 worth of food for $5.83. It rocked! Then hurried home so we could all take naps before our annual free trip to Sea World. Thank Sea World. They give Military families one free day a year.
We hit some shows and the water park for about 4 hours. It was great!
Waiting for Shamu! Boston loved cheering for him, just couldn't get a good picture of it.

I attempted to make a 3 tier chocolate peanut butter recies cake for Phil. Turned out great! Thanks Crissy for your recipe.

Then after Sea World, we rushed to get Rudy's BBQ-best BBQ ever. Then ran home, got out of our bathing suits and Kim came to watch the kids. We headed off to see the Harry Potter Movie. Really good, if you haven't read the books. Good thing I didn't read the books uh! So our day started at 7:30am and ended at 11:00pm. But it was the most perfect family day. We had such a great time.
Phil got a picture of his three ladies, ammo for his new 40DX, and holster. He banked this year! I love planning stuff like this. So here's to my husband the love of my life! Happy 30th ya old man:)

Happy Birthday Phil! What a fun-filled day! You are a great planner Miken! I'm glad the cake turned out well! We'll have to try it with peanut butter! We had a drive thru zoo like you went to in NC and I used to freak out when we drove by the Ostriches and Emoos. You have to be careful of your car though- we came home with a dent in one of our back doors from a ram- pretty funny! Boston is so cute- Joshua says bye just like she does if he gets a little nervous- it's so cute! We miss you guys!
