Birthday fun

I have been in Utah for the past week visiting family and celebrating my birthday and my cute twin sister, Ashley's, birthday as well. My mom flew me out as a birthday gift for Ashley and I. (Thank you so much mom!) Ashley and her family were in town for Thanksgiving and she didn't know I was coming. We wanted to surprise her, and we sure did when I popped out of a large wrapped birthday present and yelled, "Surprise, happy birthday!!" We all had a great week being together.

I got to hang out with my nephew and niece, who once again melted my heart.

We went to the festival of trees and the kids had fun standing in this bubble machine. The kids loved it. How come they never had cool stuff like this when I was a kid?

We also went to temple square.

Happy birthday to us! How lucky am I to get to share a great day with my darling sister?

It was nice to come home to my husband and hug and cuddle him again. Dan's sweet birthday post he wrote for me made me laugh and smile.
