my 24th birthday

saturday was my 24th birthday. here's to a new year…of trying, even harder, to convince people i'm not 17. maybe you have to meet me in person to experience it...i think it's a combination of my who nose, chipmunk cheeks, and the obnoxious cadence of my voice. 
robbie gave me a fujifilm instant print camera -- i'm so excited about it! we also celebrated my birthday with: a free birthday drink at starbucks, a zoo trip, thrifting, seeing lincoln (my intense love of american history never wanes, people), and late eats at the denver diner. it was perfect! i did sort of forget to take photos throughout the day because i just wanted to carry around my new camera…but that's ok. : ) 

p.s. it seems the mouse ears are a new park family birthday tradition.

  12. Happy Birthday to you! I'm sure when I get to 24 everyone will still think I'm 17 too. All the women in my family - mom, me and my sister have problems with people thinking we are a lot younger. Just think of it as a blessing in old age. You will still look fabulous :)
