HaPpY bIrThDaY to Us!

J.D. and I both celebrate our birthdays in April.  J.D. on the 15th and me on the 21st.  We celebrated at home for J.D.'s birthday on April 15 with a classic strawberry cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.  Cheesecake is J.D.'s favorite! We served it at our wedding reception instead of cake because it is his favorite!  We went to a Jazz v. Mavericks game at ESA in Salt Lake on April 16.  We splurged a little bit on the tickets but it was hands down the best basketball game either one of us had ever been to- EVER!!

From our corner of the arena- but closer to the floor than our seats were. 

7 periods- that's 3 OT for the Jazz to beat the Mavericks- AMAZING GAME!!

We had to get a picture outside after the game- not a fantastic picture but you can tell we were happy after the WIN!
We celebrated my birthday between April 21 and April 22 because I had to work on my birthday.  J.D. went to Sweet Tooth Fairy in Draper and picked out a tasty selection of cupcakes that we have enjoyed for several days.  He even made dinner on Sunday night for us.  What a good guy!
JD and I met up with my sister and her family and our cousin and his family in Salt Lake for breakfast which just happened to be on my birthday.  This is only the second time I have seen my cousin's little boy (in green).  He was two days old the last time I saw him and he is just as cute as ever.  My sister's little guy "R"(in orange) wasn't so sure he liked his Aunt Miss holding another little person.

Even though I had to work on my birthday the girls I work with helped me celebrate too.  I work on the mom/baby unit at the local hospital so our supplies are limited but I work with incredibly creative women (as you will see below).
This is my birthday crown and sash.  The crown says "B-day girl" and the sash says "Do a jive I'm 35".  I refused to wear the hat while doing rounds but I did wear the sash for one set of rounds luckily my patients had a sense of humor.

We know how to have a good time and if I couldn't be with my family I'm sure glad I got to be with my friends.
