What to do today..Hmm… Turn 28 I think :)

29 Jul

July 29th marked the celebration of 28 years for me. The day was spent in Bamako. Yeah decided to whisk me away from the kids for a night without screaming, hair pulling, whining and sibling rivalry. My friend Dianna was kind enough to offer to babysit the kids for one night. Without that we would not have been able to do this. We spent the day at the Radisson in Mali. It was extremely nice. I had a great time. The morning of my birthday was filled with wishes from loved ones. I am so grateful for my family. My mom, dad and bro called. So did friends from the good old days. Facebook greeted me as well with numerous wishes from around the globe. I miss my past in many ways. There are many people I have lost touch with that were very special 10 years ago.

Best Birthday Gift a mom could ask for

The best gift was when we returned home. My kids and my friend Dianna created a collage that said Happy Birthday. This was so special. I was touched and amazed at their efforts.

Great birthday!! Great way to turn 28.


Yeah and Marissa

    I hope you had a super happy Birthday. Shelby’s is two days after yours. That should make it easier for me to remember in the future. Here’s to 28 years behind you and 70 more blessed years to come.
