In the Sacks family, every time the word "birthday" is said, on your birthday, the song must be sung. And if you did not know this before, I will tell you now, Justin's parents are VERY musically incline. Justin's dad sang in the Mormon Tabernacle choir and he mom is a genius when it comes to music, so when I get my birthday song every year, it sounds like angels from heaven. I think my mother in law sang it to me about a dozen times that day. It was wonderful.
This year was quite different from the rest. First of all, I was not pissed off about my birthday. How could I be, I was woken up to the sound of the ocean! Second if all, I am super optimistic about this 31st year of my life. It's going to be great! And 3rd, I was surrounded by people that loved me and showed me that all day long. Last year, I was annoyingly sick and did nothing, it was super lame. This year totally made up for it.
We started the day off with a trip to the farmers market in Oceanside. My mother in law bought me some super cute earrings and my father in law bought me a super good strawberry crepe. The only bad thing was I got yelled at by a crazy lady selling her hummus. This story must be told:
I was casually walking down the lane of the farmers market when I came across a long line of hummus samples. I grabbed a piece of sample pita bread and grabbed a spoon to try some of the dip. I got too much on my bread and scooped a little bit off before I ate it. That's when I heard someone yelling, and I mean yelling:
"What are you doing? This is not your home!"
me-"what?" completely confused as to why she was yelling at me
"What do you think you are doing, you can't do that! Don't you know that's against the health code?"
me-"I just did not want to take too much of it"
"Well, now you ruined it"
She proceeds to take the entire jar of dip and throws the whole thing out.
Wow, sorry lady, I did not know I had to be up to date on my health codes before entering into your presence. What a raunchy lady.. good luck with selling that hummus, brat.
Then I proceeded to think of all the nasty things I could of said to her for the next 30 minutes.
Ok, onto better things now.
So then Jace feel asleep in the stroller and peed in front of this lady's store. I wonder if that is against health code, oh well, good job Jace.
After changing Jace, we headed to Sand Diego to see some awesome ships and submarines.
I truly have the sweetest father in law...ever!
Posing for the picture. These are the bunkers of the US submarine.
I can only imagine I would feel like this if I had to control even a small section of the buttons and knobs.
Hanging out with Papa.
The kids took a boat ride out to see some of the other ships, I did not go because of the fear of Carter crawling off the boat and sea sickness, I was not about to be sick on my birthday again!
This ship was in the Pirates of the Caribbean.
Dave and Lori, it has been a long time since we had seen them and their 2 cute kids, it was so much fun to hang out with them all week!
I wonder if Johnny Depp touched one of these?
For sure he touched this!
Cohen wanted me to take a picture of him.. and then he did this. Such a poser.
What kind of brain do you have to come up with all these knobs and wires and pipes and know how to work them. It blows my mind to even think about how it all works together.
These were the crawl holes to get into each compartment of the Russian Sub. I wonder how many people bumped their heads when going through these?
For dinner, we went out on the Pier and ate at Ruby's with the whole family. It was fabulous.
31 here I come!
Can I just say how much I love this man. The best part of vacation was being able to see him every day, all day for 11 days! He is so kind and loving and just plain wonderful. For my birthday, he totally surprised me with a new camera!
This is my niece Lilly. She is so so super sweet and had a total connection with Justin. She sat there and signed to him during dinner and called him her friend.
And by far the best part of the day, my mother in law fulfilled my ultimate request...chocolate lava cake. Divine!
I had a fantastic day!
