The big 3-0

We just got back from a fun-filled weekend at Detroit Lake which is where we tend to spend Chris' birthday each year. This year was even more special since he turned 30! We spent quite a bit of time this weekend marveling at the past ten years. When we met, neither of us could legally drink a beer and now here we are, each 30 and expecting our third son. This life is amazing and I couldn't imagine going through it without him. Happy Birthday to truly, my better half. 

At Detroit, we enjoyed Papa's new pontoon boat and Coen's first time ever on a boat. He took to it just like a fish! The water was absolutely freezing, but Coen couldn't get enough of kicking his feet in it off the side of the boat. We all agreed that he would jump right in if we let him. He also LOVED his life jacket. This kid has a thing for buckles. If this weekend was any indication, this summer is going to be awesome!

After a couple nights at Detroit, we turned Chris' 30th into a good reason for a mini-Babymoon before #3 arrives. The boys stayed at the lake with Papa and Grandma and we drove the short hour to Sisters, Oregon and stayed at Five Pines Resort. Love, love, love this place! They have their own cute little movie house, brewery, spa and athletic club and, when the weather is nice, they have his and hers bicycle cruisers that you can take out for a ride. Of course we didn't get to partake in everything they had to offer with such a short trip, but our private cabin was cozy and luxurious and just what we needed! Getting to see a movie at a theatre was also a treat :)

Fun extended weekend all around!
