one year older and wiser too. . .

it has been one of those weeks where I am shocked it is Thursday. Probably because Monday was Pioneer Day (technically Sunday was Pioneer day, but BYU celebrated Monday) and we opted to not go into work.

Usually we go in, even on holidays (being the workaholics/poor college students that we are). But we are getting towards the end of summer and getting burnt out on spending up to 8 hours a day 6 days a week at work and it was my little brother's birthday.

We had a blast. It was the traditional breakfast of birthday boy's choice (homemade biscuits and gravy, thank you mom for the recipe. they were delicious.) Tucanos for lunch, where Adam indulged on their amazing roasted pineapple.



We went to a giant toy store (think Home Alone 2)




and then ate these amazing cupcakes that we made



and then some pizza with family. It was just enough to make the day special but not too much to make it an ordeal.
