Yesterday was Matt's 23rd birthday! I wanted to make the day extra special because last year I wasn't able to be with him on his bday because I was in Texas. Sadly, Matt had to work on his birthday =[ To start off the day, I woke up at 4:15 AM to make him breakfast ( Matt has to be at work at 5:30 every morning). It was a yummy breakfast in bed! Later in the day, Matt, his parents, Grandpa, James, Sadie, and I drove to Jackson, Wyoming to go to Bar J. Bar J is a place where they serve you a "cowboy" dinner, and then cowboys sing/tell jokes for your entertainment. Matt's family has gone to Bar J every summer for forever, so it was fun to be a part of their family tradition. Here's some fun pictures from our birthday adventures! Mom, I totally forgot to bring the camera when we went golfing, but Matt had a great time. I think it was one of his favorite gifts.

Yummy breakfast of eggs (with cheese of course), bacon, and blueberry muffins! I didn't have any small birthday candles, so I used a real one!
Opening his presents!


Soooo tired...

On the way to Bar J, we had to stop to get some SQUARE ICE CREAM.

Isn't it neat?
The famous elk antler arches in Jackson Hole.
Matt, me, Grandpa, Sadie, James!

Only my Mom and Dave would understand the significance of this picture. LOL

Ok PEOPLE. I want you to look at the cloud in this picture very closely. Can you see the monkey? It's like a profile of the monkey. The mouth is sticking out facing the left...the nose sticks up on top of the mouth..and you can see the eyelids and it looks like it has a bunch of hair on his face? This picture stirred up lots of controversy lol. ALL the girls could see the monkey face, but none of the boys could see it. PLEASE tell me if you can see it.

Waiting for the show to start!

I was in heaven...that's a bunch of tender, juicy steaks!!!
