On Tuesday I turned 31. No biggie - it's one of those numbers that doesn't seem to mean too much.
Despite this, my birthday was wonderful.
On Tuesdays I usually open the coffee shop I work at, which means being down there by 5:30 - that is A.M.
A huge accomplishment for me every week.
So, I took my birthday off. We still got up a bit early so we could head into SLO with Jim and have breakfast with him before he had to be at work. We went to one of my favorite places, Big Sky.
Then Fletch and I headed over to Barnes and Noble to get him a new reptile/amphibian book and pick out something for Kennedy.
Then we headed over to Kennedy's house in Los Osos for a very nice long visit.
Are you wondering who Kennedy is? Fletcher's newest cousin! She was born on March 5th and Fletch, Jim and I had the privilege of being at the hospital during the birth. Thanks Mom (Amber) and Dad (Jim's brother Jeff).

He said, "no, no, no."
He was done and did not want to me

I stopped begging and started sulking.
And so, he agreed. And I snapped the
As soon as I did, I knew the bill
of his hat was in the way.
Just as I was
about to ask/beg/demand for ONE
more picture, I took a look at what I had:
Then we headed back to Atascadero, and made a quick stop off for a Junah fix!
Then on to my Mom's house for dinner with:
Dylan, Briana, Paxton, Roy and Andy
Seth, Amber, Luke, Bay, and Bella
And, to top it off, Jim got off just in time to come eat with us, a perfect end to a perfect day.
