I celebrated my 25 birthday last Saturday!! Yep...the big 2-5. Wow. I don't feel 25...I don't even feel 21. I feel like I'm still the same ragamuffin kid, racing scooters down the hill beside our house w/ my brother. How am I 25 years old?? A quarter of a century old?? YIKES!!
The only thing I asked for my birthday was a white water rafting trip :) My parents granted my wish and we took a family trip Saturday morning to the Natahalia (sp?) river in NC. I had a blast...I hope my family did too. Chris and I were the only ones to "fall" out of the raft. We all took a break at one point to hop into the freezing cold river...well....everyone but mom, we sorta pushed her over :) It was so fun and a great way to spend my birthday! We made it through the class 3 "waterfall" (no biggie,haha) and then ended or trip on the side of the river with a pizza!! We all said we would go again if it wasnt for the 2hr drive back home and dinner plans we had later that day. My mom had a lovely chocolate cake ready to celebrate my birthday with...but...as she would like to put it "keeping up w/ tradition"....she forgot the candles. No fear...in the back of the cabinet...the top cabinet above the stove....the cabinet you have to climb on a bar stool to reach...farrrr back in THAT cabinet, in an old cool whip tub...was a candle!! A nice big candle. A nice big candle that sported the number 3 on it. So...in order to make sure I still got a birthday wish, I blew out my number 3 candle!! If you're wondering WHY we have a number three candle...don't ask...heaven only knows.
The next day I spent the afternoon w/ mom and Lexi (Chris's G/F). We caught a movie and did a bit of grocery shopping before heading home and getting ready for my family to come over and celebrate my birthday AGAIN!!
All in all it was a nice weekend :) I'm happy to be twenty...uh....three years old!!
