Matt's 35th Birthday

Matt turned 35 this weekend.  I made sure to not schedule any sessions that day and we had the whole day for fun :)  We started off with a breakfast of homemade cinnamon rolls, eggs and bacon (Matt's request), some presents, and snuggles around the breakfast table.


We were making Cookie howl right here, which is always funny :)


The Flores family came over shortly before lunch.  We had originally planned on going to Oak Glen, but decided instead to head up to Jenk's Lake to hike around.  We were so glad we did as it ended up being just perfect.  We packed a little picnic and then explored.  None of us had ever been to Jenk's Lake, but we're definitely going back!  It's only a 25 minute drive from our house and it's so beautiful.  The trees were all changing color and it was a perfect 67 degrees.  It's super tiny, more of a pond than a lake, but it sure is beautiful.

These are all cell phone pictures :)















When we got home we relaxed, had some appetizers, played a game, and then chowed down on a delicious dinner.  Matt had smoked some pork butt, and I made potatoes au gratin, Brussels's sprouts,  salad and pineapple upside down cake to go along with it.
