Road Trip #5... Getting Older...

I'm 30!! yeah... that's right - THIRTY!! Whoa! I'm not quite sure what to say about that...
My birthday was a couple of days ago, bu we were out of town, so we celebrated it when we got back home last night. My mom made her YUMMY strawberry cake - it's sooooo good!
This past week we were in Valdosta, GA at a conferece. One of the days, the family we were staying with took us to this cool park. At the park, you could walk through the wetlands on a boardwalk - it was so neat!
The boardwalk was super low to the ground, so we were really close to the Aligators! One tim, Adam made a sound and there were two gators there that flipped out and kind-of jumped out of the water! It scared us all a lile bit!
At the end of the walk way, there was a big tower you could climb up and see for miles! It was really cool!
Here we are on the tower :)
We've already had 5 road trips and 3 airplane trips... and the next road trip is this weekend... Man, I'm tired!!

Yeah it's hard for me to believe you're 30. I'm thinking time stopped back in Virginia 3 years ago! :) That boardwalk thing looks fun, but I'm not sure I would've been brave enough to walk that close to gators! -Emily

"Cool alligator! How'd they get SO close!?"-from Wesley and "You know!! Alligators kill people, bite people, and .....(you get the idea),...oh, can alligators climb?"-from Isaiah

Looks like fun. :) The strawberry cake looks great, while we made muffins this morning we were talking about how good strawberry cakes are!
