Birthday and Anniversary Weekend!

This weekend for my birthday and our anniversary we had a few events planned. To start the fun weekend, we had a barbecue with family at the Carlsbad Inn, the weather was great and we hung out down at the beach for a while, enjoying the sun. We played some bocce ball, the boys skim boarded and we just relaxed. Right before sunset we went on a bike ride along the coast, and finally went back up to the court yard at the Inn and had a great barbecue. I opened my birthday present's from family then, and I got some great stuff. One thing that was really exciting was the camera that Jordan got me. It is a Canon Rebel XS, and it is beautiful, I can't wait to start taking good pictures (I definitely need to learn a thing or two about photography before I use it though). Jordan and I had reserved a room at the Inn for the night, it was a fun getaway.

Here I am with my grandma, mom and sister.

Some skim boarding action.

The biking gang...sorry Jon got cut off :(

I loved this pink beach cruiser!

The next morning we had a doctor's appointment, and we got to see Clara again! She was very active, kicking and moving around, we even saw her yawn, it was really cute. They confirmed again that the baby is a girl, and she weighs about 14 ounces right now, right on track.

Here is her profile,

her thumb.

This is her bum shot (for gender), I think it's cute!

After our appointment, the next phase of the weekend was heading up to Disneyland! This year Disneyland is giving free admission on your birthday, so I definitely took advantage of that! I was a little limited with what I could ride, sticking to the mellow ones and the kiddie rides. It was still really fun, we just did some things we wouldn't normally do, like see some shows. We had a great time, and it was a fun close to the weekend.

happiest place on earth....

I ran into my birthday twin...happy birthday Jessica!

The end...

Today is our four year wedding anniversary. Unfortunately we are both working, but we have some fun weekend plans (will post about those later). I just wanted to say that I am the luckiest girl alive to have such an amazing husband. Jordan you are my best friend and I don't know what I would do without you. Thank you for making me your wife four years ago!
