Sunday I celebrated my 30th birthday. This year, as every other year I didn't expect very much. Sure, I tweeted a coutdown and was excited to turn yet another age but overall I was not expecting anything much more than spending it with the people who mean the most to me, my family.

Since having kids all I really ask is that we have a fun, family day together. It doesn't have to be anything big and we don't have to spend much money as long as we can look back and have the memories of spending it together. I guess you can say I'm sentimental like that when it comes to special occassions, more about who its spent with rather than what you spend.

This year it was much different than previous years. Of course there were the four of us. Myself, Hubby and the two kids. My inlaws were busy all weekend so they couldnt make it and my mother couldn't make it, which was unfortunate but not the end of the world. My dad however did come over and he came over with all intentions of making the celebration memorable. If he didn't, he did a pretty good job either way.

My dad bakes, so he baked up a batch of muffins for us and brought them over along with a Chocolate Cheesecake (that he did not bake himself but had K convinced he did because of the muffins) and of course a special card for me for my birthday.

It's not the muffins or the cake or even the card that made this day special for me. It's seeing someone I thought I wouldn't on the day I needed to see them the most.

It was nice to sit, reminisce and just talk. It was nice to see him interact with his grandchildren and them not shy away and call him "Grandpa". It felt good to have a part of my family back for in my eyes, a big milestone birthday in my life. You only turn 30 once and I couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate.

Love this picture, even if it took a few takes :)
