30 is the new 20

I thought I would share a little about Dusty's big 30 birthday. I had a hard time coming up with ideas to celebrate. He assured me he didn't want a surprise party or big party. I am a little relieved because I don't know if I could have pulled it together in time with vacation falling so close to his birthday.
So.... instead of a party, I made him an album of memories with the help of family and friends who contributed their favorite memories. I also made a list of 30 things for us to do... it was fun to complete the list. I tried to document the achievements with pictures as you can see in my Flickr account. So, here's the breakdown of our celebration... at least with the bigger things.

Day 1 (Friday, Sept. 26):
Opened presents
Posed for pic w/Cayson
Went to the gun range (my 1st time to shoot a gun)
