I turned 29 last week.
For my birthday, I just wanted to hang out with my family.
I took the kids to the zoo during the day with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. It was fun to see Pearl identify the animals and make their sounds. I really thought the elephants were going to be her favorite. She did enjoy them, but she was surprisingly most excited by the turtles.
We went out to a delicious dinner and had ice cream at Salt & Straw afterward. This birthday was great! It's been a while since I have spent that much time outside of the house in one day and it felt wonderful. I need to figure out how to do that more often, but it still feels hard with two kids by myself. I'm sure I will figure it out eventually.
I can't believe this is the last year of my 20's. I still don't feel like an adult. Maybe that feeling will magically happen next year at 30.
