My Birthday in Pictures

This year I spent my birthday with all my favorite guys and some of my favorite local bloggers at Six Flags courtesy of Discover card Coaster to Coaster Tour

 We had a great time, seeing super heroes, riding rides, learning about the Coaster to coaster tour and learning about Discover and seeing some great blogger friends.

It was super humid and even rained on us for awhile.  But overall it was a great day.  The early storms seemed to have kept the crowds away and we pretty much walked right on to every ride we wanted to go on.

It was a great way to spend my birthday.  Thank you Discover!  (A post with some great summer savings tips from Discover to come soon.)

it rained on us but we just soaked it up!

Timmy used his own money to buy me a birthday gift.

would you believe a bird left me a gift too? it was so bad the wipers couldn't clean it off
 After spending the day at Six Flags we met up with my father at Olive Garden (one of my faves) and then went back to our house for some birthday cake!
an amazingly delicious cake from Cold Stone Creamery
Disclosure: I was chosen to attend this event at Six Flags with Discover, thanks to Chicagonista. We were treated to tickets and lunch but were not compensated for a positive review.


  1. Great pictures! Looks like you had a great birthday! I love that keychain. I saw them at Disney last week and was tempted to buy one for myself.

  2. Now THAT is how you celebrate a birthday! I love that particular Six Flags park!! And Olive Garden...omg, love, love, love.

  3. It was a great time. Thanks so much for hanging with my kids for a few minutes!


Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
