My 21st Birthday!

September 8th i had my 21st Birthday! :o) You know what that means...drinking!!!! haha jk...I'm not gunna drink. anyways...i feel so much older! {NOT} haha. People still ask me if I'm still in high school...lame! but my mom says i will be happy for that when i get older and still look good. let's hope! :o)

But i had a great Birthday and Birthday weekend! It started off with my little sister Jonni writing all over the bathroom mirrors...loved it! and then i got lots of phone calls, texts, facebook comments (haha), and cards! let's just say i have amazing friends and family!

On your Birthday Disneyland gives you a free pass, but since i already have an annual pass they give you $72 worth of merchandise on a card. Awesome! So me and the marmy headed down to Disneyland to have some fun for a few hours. On the way home we went to fav! Thanks mom for an awesome day!

Then later that day i came home to roses! Ally gave me some gorgeous roses...i mean what girl doesn't love flowers?! thanks sister!!

That night we had dinner and dessert! We got Donut Man glazed donuts and had it with ice cream, strawberries, and chocolate...yum! my family even sang to me! haha.

My Birthday weekend we decided to stay in a hotel and have a little getaway! A friend of ours (JJ) gave us an awesome deal on a hotel so we got to stay in the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa, which was amazing! When we got there we saw that JJ had left we a little Birthday surprise...Drinks, fruit and chocolate dipped strawberries! It was awesome :o)
Mmm mmm...thanks JJ!!

J, me and Matti relaxin on the bed...

The night we got there we went out to dinner at Olive Garden! One of our fav's...especially when it's unlimited pasta for $9! Then we stayed up late swimming and hanging out in the hot tub {we were so excited that the pool was open 24hrs}!

The next say we spent several hours just having fun at the pool. the pool was huge! {see my dad way out there sitting by himself? who knows? haha}

That afternoon we went to the Oceanside Pier and just walked around...

While walking on the pier we came across this pelican. It was really cool! This little girl walking by told us that they bite...but that didn't stop my dad. haha. testing it's limit...

Lauren took alot of these beautiful pictures! Check her out! Lauren Skousen Photography

The ocean was beautiful and it was a little overcast, so you could see the rays shinning through the clouds!

The kids just enjoying the beach...
There was this steap hill and we were going down it...Lauren decided to snap a picture :o) haha.

I wish i had Lauren's skills. I love this one!

haha. My dad can never do a normal face in pictures. I love my parental units...they are amazing! :o)

After the beach we had dinner at In-N-Out and went shopping at the Outlet Mall {or should i say window shopping for me haha} Later that night us kids went down and just sat talking outside for hours...

The next morning we checked out of our hotel. After breakfast we went to the LDS San Diego Temple. I love this temple! Here is the whole family...

Just me...

Matti posing! I love her face!!!!
