James enjoyed his birthday weekend even though our plans to go to San Diego fell through. Hopefully I can get the video to upload of the singing of Happy Birthday and the blowing out of candles. I have to admit it's not quite as funny as last year's with Jimmy riding a fake bull with a saddle at Texas Roadhouse. Jimmy had to work yesterday on his big day but got to leave a little early. I took him to work and picked him up. After work I took him to the county fair. We were there for about 2.5 hours and it was pretty lame. We did get to see all the animals and kids riding thier dirt bikes so it wasn't all bad. We came home and Jimmy opened his presents. He got a brand new lithium ion drill, a new screw driver set and a book that has a zillion AZ day trips. Last minute we decided to have the family over for lunch to celebrate Jimmy's B-day.

We spent a relaxing night at home last night. Then, woke up bright and early today and went on a bike ride. We worked around the house then went to Costco to pick up lunch for today. THANK YOU COSTCO. I love that place. It really is true that you can't leave without spending at least $100-. We didn't want to cook so we picked up some pre-made sandwiches and salads, made some sun tea and strawberry lemonade and we were set! Jimmy wanted carrot cake and Costco only had a full sheet cake- which would have been about 4 times as much cake as we needed. So I went to Fry's and found the BEST regular sized carrot cake and it was awesome! The whole family that live in AZ was here! Norm, Florence and family, we missed you guys!
