OBX: Birthday!

I turned a year older while down at OBX. I am 29 now, if you must know.

That day we skipped the beach and the pool and went shopping. We went to a waterfront shopping plaza and had a lesurisly walk along the pier. It was yet another sunny day! As I get older, birthdays are no longer about presents and cakes and big trips (although I did receive some petty presents from hubs & Anna and cake in the form of Duck Donuts and we were on vacation) but more about spending time with my little fam and getting a nice picture with all 3 of us to remember the day.

Instead of buying a present for myself, we actually got something for Anna – an ornament. It will be her “Second Christmas” ornament. She won’t remember a thing about this vacation, but we will tell her plenty of stories every time we hang the ornament for years to come.

  5. Happy Birthday! Isn't it funny how gifts for the little ones almost seem better than ones for ourselves these days. I love that ornament tradition you've started for her.
