The Big 3-0!

Jesse and I often joke about how old we're getting but this weekend it really hit home when Jesse turned the big 30! You know that song Strawberry Wine where she says she remembers when 30 was old? Well that's exactly how we feel. When we first got married we had a few friends that were in their late twenties and we thought they were so old. Now it's hard for us to believe that we're where they were. The good news- 30 isn't really old and we both are so excited to see what the future holds in the next 30 years.

We celebrated his birthday with dinner at a restuarant we had never tried. We were excited that several of our friends joined us in the celebration. The food was wonderful and we all had a good time laughing and eating.

Jesse got some interesting gifts. Here he is opening a gag gift from a family that we are close friends with.

You can tell by the look on his face that this was no ordinary gift. Here's what was inside.
They also gave him a hilarious card.

The picture is from a field day we had back in May. Isn't the card perfect? :)
After dinner, we headed back to our house for cake.

He looked a little nervous about blowing out so many candles, but he had them out before I could even take another picture!
He wouldn't tell us what he wished for, but if I was a betting girl I'd say it was kite related! :)
Although we never expected to be celebrating Jesse's 30th in Africa, I have to say that it was a wonderful night shared with great friends. Here's to at least 30 more!
