Gettin' Old

So I'm ignoring my blog absence and picking up where I left off, which just so happens to be my birthday. On April 24 I turned 24.  It feels kind of weird, especially since being home in NC. I'm really starting to feel the old in OLDest child. There are several reason for this.  This obvious one being that I am the only one married with a kid in my family. I'm used to being with Bruce's side of the family where I'm the youngest and all of his siblings are married with kids. Another thing that makes me feel old is when we are seniors in high school my mom always hangs our senior picture up on the wall. Well my mom just put my brother Zack's picture up and I was looking at mine noticing how outdated it's starting to look. Sad! I am also having a terrible time remembering how old I am.  Ever since 22 it seems like my subconscious has stopped keeping count.

Moving along from my little rant, my birthday was absolutely superb! My aunt and uncle were kind enough to watch Madi while Bruce and I went out to dinner. We ate at La Jolla Groves; a cute, romantic restaurant in Provo. As soon as you walk in there are real lemon trees that smell SO good.  This inside of the restaurant feels like you are in a lemon grove and the food is so yummy. Their salmon is a-ma-zing! I could seriously eat it every day.  
They also gave us a free desert since it was my birthday.  It looked pretty legit and it tasted as good as it looked. 
 After dinner we walked around outside and looked at all the shops. We decided to stop by Provo Beach Resort and explore. It was sa-weet! I never knew there was so much to do there.  There were arcade games, play grounds, a merry-go-round, bowling, mini crockett, a ropes course, virtual golf, and indoor surfing. Bruce and I decided to do the ropes course. It was pretty kid friendly but still fun and different.
It was a really great day and I especially enjoyed spending some alone time with Bruce.  Having a baby makes you really appreciate any time you get to spend alone with each other.  I couldn't have asked for a better birthday!! XO
