My Birthday

We made it to Mark's parents house on June 14, 2009. I wanted to get there so I would not have to be stuck traveling on my birthday. So we made! I turned 25 on June 15, it was a great day. It started off with my favorite " CORNMEAL PANCAKES," if you have never had them you should try them. You can get the recipe of the jiffy corn muffin box or just go to their website!
After breakfast my mother and sister in law and myself went and got a pedicure and a manicure, and went to Chili's for lunch so we could get the White Chocolate Molten Cake! Another favorite!
When we got back to the house the boys and Taylor had cleaned my car out! It looked so good, thank you for scrubbing the carpet papa Dave!

Mark, Taylor, Dave, Jan and Myself all headed for Branson, Mo to have a wonderful dinner at Mels Hard Luck Diner. A place for American Idol Rejects (the good rejects). It was kind of interesting because the waiters would take turns singing even while they were waiting tables. They sang Happy Birthday and it was pretty amazing and a little embarrasing but I enjoyed the fun!

Here are a few pictures of that we thought were fun in Branson, and also crossed the Table Rock Dam.

We headed back to Mark's parents house for Cake and Ice Cream. It was way good cake and the best Rocky Road Ice Cream I have ever had!

More to come. I still have Taylor's Birthday and Zoo pictures to post. I promise to be better at posting!

Picture Overload and Catch up Time!

Here is some more pictures from our TRIP across the UNITED STATES.

These pictures were taken in Colorado just outside of Aspen. It was breathtaking! We also went through a very long tunnel, is it me or does no one honk as they go through the tunnel?

As soon as we got to Denver, and head northeast to my moms we hit a little rain storm!!! Notice how flat it is after you reach Denver.

While driving in the rain storm we saw some flashing lights ahead that looked liked cop cars, nope, they were snow plows scraping the the hail of the roads. It was so loud we could not even talk to each other in the car we were yelling just to hear one another. CRAZY!

After spending two nights with my mom we went to MTN. Rushmore. It was way smaller than I thought it was going to be. It was fun we saw a mtn. goat, and Taylor chased all the squirrels away.

In South Dakota they have some pretty amazing billboards, this one had to be our favorite one,

This part of the trip was fun, we had a great time visiting my side of the family. We love you all and miss you so much. Thanks for all the fun!
