Where were you thirty years ago today?

Well we were at the hospital. But it was for a good thing!

Because today is our daughter Lindsey's 30th birthday. And she says she's having a bit of a tough time getting used to that fact that she's now starting her 30's. And I have to admit, it does sound a bit strange that our daughter is 30. But then again, none of us are getting any younger, are we??

Although, with her turning 30 it does sound as if she's catching up to us just a little bit, doesn't it?

And so to celebrate her birthday today, we want to show you some photos from the past 30 years...

She has arrived! Taken at 1 day old...August 21, 1986.

At age two and a half, we took Lindsey skiing for the first time. She was a natural!

Age 4. She sure is a cutie, isn't she?

Off to Brownie Camp at age 6.

Halloween 1993. She's always making us laugh!

Out for a hike with Mom and Dad at age 8.

In July of 1997, Lindsey won a coloring contest in the local newspaper and she got to be a clown in the Shriner's Circus.

At age 12, out doing some spring skiing. As I said earlier, Lindsey was a natural skier, and went on to get her level 1 instructor's licence.

Age 17. 

Just short of her 20th birthday, she had her beautiful long hair chopped off to support cancer for a wig making program for children.

Always lots of laughs when you're around Lindsey!

On her wedding day, October 3, 2009. Lindsey with Ruth's dad.
 Lindsey loves her Grandpa!

With her husband Justin.
 Life is too short not to be silly every now and again!

With her family! Cameron, Justin, and Sadie.

Happy 30th Birthday Lindsey. We love you!

  1. Happy birthday to Lindsey. Our oldest son is already 35, so we hit that 30 milestone a while ago. It's funny how they keep getting older, but I don't feel older. I guess that's a good thing!

    1. Thanks Evelyn for the birthday wishes to Lindsey. Yes I agree, I don't feel like I am old enough to have a child that old, I still feel like I am in my thirties, at least most of the time I do. ;-)

  3. Happy Birthday to Lindsey! We had a brief "moment", when our eldest turned 40. 40! And that was "few" years ago. Time flies.
    She too had her hair lobbed off for a wig for a cancer victim. Odd little coincidence.

    1. Thanks Bob! Funny, so far I haven't had any moments concerning age, mine or hers.

      Yes, that is an odd coincidence, they must think alike! :-)

    1. Thank you Chuck and Anneke! Still haven't gotten to an age where it has bothered me. I always say you are only as old as you feel.

  8. I'm 76 and I've never had a birthday that bothered me. I figure the more birthdays I have, the longer I'll live.

    1. Well done, that's the attitude I love. I am 54, going to be 55 this year and I still haven't been bothered by age. Really, you are only a day older than you were yesterday!

  9. Happy Birthday to her! Your nice series makes me think of our kids, only a little older.

  10. In her age 17 photo, it struck me that Lindsey looks like her pretty mama. Do you guys think she looks like Ruth or Kevin? Our baby boy Tim turns 29 next week and our whole family is kind of in shock. How is it that days drag but years fly?

    1. Thank you Dinah! Yes, we have had a few people say that she looks like me but when Kevin and I look at her she looks more like him and definitely more like his side of the family.

      Yep, time is a funny thing for sure!
