Stop it! My face hurts!

I know that this post "seems" a little long but it's mostly pictures with a little commentary. I PROMISE this is it!

Can you be sick of smiling? Oy! I feel like I've been smiling non-stop for the past 7 days. I have just had a lot going on and now my face and my head hurts! LOL. Oh, I know! Poor me! Poor Kim that has had so much fun with friends and family that her face hurts. What ever will she do?

I promise that after this post I won't talk about my birthday until next year. But I just know that you want to see some pictures of my birthday right? Right!? Well if you don't then you may be excused, but if you do then hang on!

Sunday was Birthday Celebration #2 at my sweet friend Debra's House.
We started out on the lake, got rained out, went to the house to eat lunch and was back on the lake in about an hour.
Here we are all wet from the rain but in hysterical laughter because of what Debra had just said!
This is the only picture we got of the 3 of us on the tube. Again we were in hysterical laughter. What's not funny about 3 grown women on a tube being pulled behind a boat? I will say that when all was said and done I was the only one left on! Woot! Woot!
And if that weren't enough, put 3 grown women on a jet ski and see if they don't break out in hysterical laughter once again. Are you starting to see why my face hurts? LOL.
And since it's not "All About Me" any more, I'll put some pictures of some others that were there. Here's my daughter and Debra's son having a blast on one of the jet skis. Here's some of the gang on one of the boats.
Here's Debra lost at sea! LOL!
And my sweet hubbalicious wake boarding! Woo! Hoo! Love you baby!
After a long day on the lake we started to wind down at Debra's.
She and Jay cooked us a delicious stir fry! It's behind that bottle of water that for some reason didn't show up in my camera lens! *sigh*
And then they whipped out this homemade ice cream cake. It was so good and as always, when someone else makes it, calorie free!
Jam session anyone? I can't believe anyone still had any energy left. Yeah, that's me on the couch half asleep! LOL
By the end of the night we were TIRED! Yet still had an hour and a half drive home! *sigh*
Um, there's still one more day left. Yeah, my "Actual Birthday".
So here it goes! "REAL QUICK"
3rd Delicious Birthday Cake. Yes 3rd! Oy! Doesn't everyone drag their birthday out for a week and get at least 3 cakes? LOL
Delicious Dinner!!
Best Friend!
Getting presents and a little silly! I know, that's really out of the norm for me!
No comment!
Not sure if she "really" wanted to give this too me! LOL
While the "boys" were outside we "girls" decided to play a game of Farkle but as soon as I grabbed the camera it turned into this. Us throwing dice at my camera! We actually forgot we were playing and never finished! LOLThen things got a little crazy and well, just don't ask!
And thus ends anything and everything about my birthday for this year!!!
I have NEVER had such an outpouring of love and fun from all my friends. That includes all you who came by to wish me a Happy Birthday at least 3 times last week! LOL.
