March has been full of fun. On March 2nd- Brennan became a teenager! AGH! He turned the big 13! Wow! I know I'm way behind my friends and family on this, but I'm still freaking out that I'm old enough to have a teenager. Wasn't I just a young adult the other day? Time goes by way too fast! This was a year for a family party. We celebrated with the extended family here the day before. I took him for some shopping after school on his bday, then went to dinner. He had a great day. Two days later, I got to fly to Arizona for my 39th birthday. I really got to have an extended birthday. Five days of fun. This was an itinerary waiting for me when I got there. Just cracked me up. Wouldn't that have been fun to do? Especially the bungee jumping and eating at Krazy Sub every day!I really had the best time in Arizona. It was such a fun time. I got to be with some of my favorite people in the world. I got to go shopping, play games, be sung to by the local band seen below (who were fabulous!), see a movie, eat out at my favorite AZ spots, go hiking in the mountains, etc. It was the best! These are the fabulous women I got to be with in the day on my birthday. It was so much fun being with my mom, Elizabeth, Laura and Heather. We just laughed and laughed and had so much fun. Nothing beats that. I just love these women more than they could ever know! That night Todd and his family and my Grandma came over for quite the party. It was great! Loved being with them. One of the highlights of the trip was the time I got to spend with my best friend Elizabeth. She's still in the middle of getting chemo right now. She is going through so much physically and mentally with this huge trial in her life. I know it's terribly difficult for her. But, despite that, she's incredibly upbeat, positive and such an inspiration to so many people that surround her. I know she has been such an incredible source of strength and has touched so many peoples' lives. Elizabeth - I love you! You amaze me!
