thirty shmirty

who says getting old is no fun? on friday i turned thirty whole years old, although, i've felt thirty for a few years now...gee, i wonder why? in keeping with a thomas family tradition we went out for pancakes to celebrate with our friends the aplins.
gus really went all out when he found out it was my birthday...
look how excited saida is to get some of that cupcake! could her mouth be open any wider?

this is where judah asks if he can have some and i laugh at him, maybe this summer, buddy...
here's my lovely friend beth and "old" susannah...
hilina is a pro at tom's now, here she's trying to keep things out of judah's reach, turns out the boy has serious swiping skills...
only part of the reason why dining at tom's is a holy experience...

afterwards we went to the playground where judah could just hardly contain himself...

and hilina walked all the way to the slide on her own!


in other news saida has picked up a couple of new phrases that she uses randomly, one being "go, judah go!" which she says whenever he does anything really. sitting there chewing on his hand, she's right there cheering him on... and the other is 'oh, man' which we were having trouble figuring out where she got until we realized it was our favorite egyptian, sammy, who says it all the time and that's why the accent is different... so ben was saying the lord's prayer with the kids and he got to the end and said 'amen'. and saida scrunched up her face and looked so seriously at him and said, "oh, man." close enough, i guess...

i am shocked that anyone remembered to take pictures, it was all i could do to keep my one child from dumping everything on the floor. we loved being able to celebrate your thirtysmirty bday.

Happy Birthday Sister! Love the pictures. In the first photo, you look sooooo much like Dad. I cannot get over Judah's hairline, it's so Sean. I love Saida's shirt (it was one of P's faves) and Hilina's puffs. Everyone is perfect, such a cute family. Love you. And let's plan to go to Tom's when we come up there in May. Boy, our list of stuff to do is getting ridulcous isn't it?
