This weekend we turned 51! I turned 25 on Friday and Rick turned 26 today! On Saturday we had our families over for a birthday party. We have plenty of pictures, but none are of the birthday cakes (which were delicious).
Rick got me beautiful flowers--tulips and lily's. They are beautiful. Here is a picture I took with my mom's awesome camera.
Alex brought his own Spiderman Cupcakes. He liked the rings and the frosting!
Alex got his tool set from us and he got the play drill from Cindy from Easter. Rick got out his matching drill. It was so much fun to watch them.
Most of the Hurckes girls that were at the party. Grandma Bonnie, Aunt Joyce, Jenna, and Jackie. Kathleen is missing from the picture.
My side of the family. Rick, my mom, my Grandma, me, my dad, and Gail.
After cake we opened our presents. I got crayons--120 different colors! and Rick got TWO turntables for our TVs!
I also got a new Digital SLR Camera! I was so surprised. The pictures that follow were taken with the new camera. Some by me, some by others!
All of our cards--we have such great friends and family!
This is the card Rick got me for my birthday! This was his artistic approach with me in the background. It took Jenna to explain what he did!

Rick gets a limo service to the airport which is usually a town car, but today they actually sent a limo. It was early and it waited in our drive-way for almost an hour. I really didn't like it but Jenna thought it was awesome.
Right before Rick left for his trip to Alabama. Happy Birthday!
Megan came to pick up Jenna--Jenna took a quick picture before they left!
Rick and I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to put on the large wall in our living room. We saw some nice things, but they were pretty expensive. The inexpensive options were not big enough for the wall and the make it yourself option never really happened.
We were fortunate to be given some nice large frames from Cindy. We liked two of the three pieces of art. Luckily Rick had a Rothko print that fit well into the third frame. Here are the results. The room looks smaller now, but it is nice to have something on the wall, finally!
