Birthday Weekend

Thank you so much to all of you that remembered my birthday today! I'm sitting at home enjoying a relaxing day with Collin and my kiddos home - it's quite convenient to have your birthday fall on a federal holiday!

We've had a great weekend, starting with our day at the Avocado Festival in Carpinteria on Saturday, and finally getting to go to the drive-in movie theater last night! We took quite a few pictures to document the weekend, so of course I'll be sharing those with you!






There were so many funny things to do with avocados at the festival! Everything from arts and crafts with avocados to vendor booths to avocado growing contests...







...and of course, it wouldn't be the Avocado Festival without lots and lots and LOTS of guacamole!!! Yum! (Wish you could've been here Mom Wilhite!)








Can you believe there's such a thing as avocado ice cream?! How was it, you ask?











Ian's face says it all - quite yummy! It was very creamy and a touch sweet, but I did have an overwhelming desire to finish it off with some tortilla chips! ;)






Our little family at the drive-in!

It's been a wonderful weekend so far, and I'm going to go enjoy the rest of my birthday with my family! Much love to you all!

Oh my gosh... it looks like you had such a wonderful birthday weekend. Know what I did? NOTHING! Ok, I did go to lunch with a girlfriend of mine, but it was nothing like your cinimatic adventures and fun festivals...

Anyway, I am so glad that you had a nice birthday.
