This past Saturday we celebrated my 32nd birthday with family. I spent my morning playing with my son and watching him roll over from his back to his belly for the first time! **Turns out he had apparently already done this at daycare but until I see it, it doesn't count** While I played with Hunter, Kristian ran to the store to buy all the goodies for our family cookout and then came home, cleaned and set everything up while I took a nice, long, hot shower.

I came downstairs after getting ready and saw that he had decorated the dining room for the party.

I was ready to celebrate!

And so was Hunter, whether he liked it or not!

My mom was feeling much better than she had been at the same time 32 years earlier.

My in-laws (my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and two of her three kids) came over to help celebrate my birthday and Mother's Day. Hunter likes his Aunt and cousins.

My brother's girlfriend Melissa made my birthday cake. Unfortunately she couldn't make it to the party but the cake was awesome.

Blowing out the candles after making a wish...and the wish has already come true :)

I think my two guys have something up their sleeve.

Family photo including the animals.

Hunter sure does like grandpa

And his grandparents sure do like him!

My honey did real good with picking out my birthday/Mother's Day gift. My first ever piece of jewelry from Tiffany's.

The whole day was fabulous. Kristian grilled some excellent food and everyone had a great time playing with Hunter. I got some really nice presents including another bracelet and necklace and a photobook from my MIL with pictures starting at our engagement all the way through Hunter's birth and recent photos. The funny thing is that for Mother's Day I made her and my mom each a photobook using the professional maternity and newborn photos of Hunter, which they both loved.

I spent my birthday exactly how I wanted, with the ones I love most.
