the big THREE OH

My 30th birthday was Saturday and my day could not have gone any better! Rich really did a great job of making me feel special! I'm not sure why, but history will show you that I typically cry on my birthday. I think I tend to build the day up into this huge ordeal (I mean, it IS my birthday!) and when it turns out to be like any other... I'm let down and disappointed. I am happy to say that no tears were shed on Saturday! :] Fun times were had by all and the day was even better than I expected.

There was no big party or dinner. It was simply me and my friends on the beach... with some booze... inflatable monkeys... and sunshine. I had initially planned to go out somewhere after the beach but we were out there from noon until 9 pm. I don't think I could have handled anymore fun! I was pooped! =)

Anyway... here are some pictures from my special day...
