So for my 28th birthday we started off the day by going to my favorite place for breakfast, a little place called Starbucks. We sipped our yummy ventia ( we splurged) hot coco with a slice of there classic original coffee cake.
Then Brock told me I wasn't well behaved enough for him to take me to the DI ( its a second hand store like The Good Will). I could have picked out anything I wanted. But maybe next year. (that was a joke plus my birthday lands on a Utah Holiday and it was closed anyways). So after we went to Sams club to pick up formula for baby Daegy, I got a call from Hollywood video saying I could come and get a free rental on my birthday. So we went straight there. After I pick out Nick and Nora's play list, I get to the front and they said that I had $10 worth of late fees. So I paid them got in the car and Brock and I laughed thinking that they probably only call people on there birthdays if they have an outstanding balance. HAHA Nothing is for free for us how could we be so stupid!!! hahah
Then we got home and decided to go for a hike. So we did and it was an adventure. we packed 4 water bottles a bag of fish crackers and 2 granola bars and a half drunken bottle for Daegen. we only thought we were going to take a short little hike maybe be back in 2 hours. But..... not with the Miller-Millers we like to do spontaneous things with out thinking. So we decided to take the hiking trail all the way to the top of the Wellsville mountains. 6 hours later we were back home Hungry and exhausted. It was a great birthday. All I wanted for my birthday was to just hang out with my cute little family of 3 and my 2 dogs.
Even though it was not my usual day at the spa birthday. I would have not changed it. It was a humbling experience , that made me realize what the important things are in life. I was able to struggle up this mountain with my family. Both Brock and I were both comparing that hike to our life in Wellsville it has been tough and trying and draining at times but when you got to the top it was symbolic to overcoming all those things and learning what was the most important. It was doing it together and the memories that we had and that when one was thinking they wanted to turn around or stop the other one was there to push them along the trail. Isn't that what life and marriage is about. Thank you Brock for a wonderful memorable birthday. It has been my favorite birthday so far . Well I guess it doesn't pass the birthday in Paris but a close second.
this was the start of the hike I thought the trees were awesome.

This one was mainly taken for evidence. if the dogs got sick we could show the vet what they were drinking. hahah

Taking his nap. It was funny that he took all his naps during the hike. They were right when he usually takes them too.
