    I went to the zoo with our kids, our friends, and their kids. Guess things look a little different when you turn 30 and already have little ones. πŸ™‚

    My bestie and also went sky diving for our 30th B-days. It was AMAZING. I recommend it to EVERYONE.

    I’m celebrating my 30th this weekend with a party at my house. We rented bouncy houses and sumo wrestling mats and sumo fat suits for it. Ad I agree, there is nothing,like the experience of skydiving. I’ve been twice and still think it was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done

    I don’t think I could ever jump from a plane! I am 27 so I have several more years to go before 30 but the closer I get to it the more scared I get lol I don’t feel like I am almost 30…I feel like I could still be 18.

    What a cute birthday party, such a great theme for a guy.

    And, I don’t know if I could skydive! I think I would freak out all the way up and then all the way down!

    Looks like Anthony had a great 30th!!

    As for a 30th birthday celebration… let’s just say it is no coincidence that Livie’s birthday is 9 months after mine πŸ™‚

    I’ve never thought about/wanted to go sky diving, to be honest! I’m like your sis though – I hate keeping fun surprises a secret. πŸ™‚

    I’ll be 30 next October, so just over a year away but will not be sky diving! I think I’d love it after I’d jumped but would be freaking out until I tipped over the edge of the plane!
    We’re in the middle of a run of weddings at the moment and then next year we’ll have a run of 30th birthdays. It’s very much about the age we’re at. Next up: A run of baby showers!

    30 is definitely a big birthday! I was in full dissertation mode on my 30th birthday, so I kept it low key with a potluck and a few drinks. But birthdays are still an awesome excuse to get together with friends!

    I want to run 30 miles on my 30th birthday. Sky diving is on my list of things to do! We actually have a place less than a mile from my house!

    I jumped out of a plane for my 25th birthday but didn’t do anything too crazy for my 30th. I am thinking of running my age in km this year. Yeah, I feel old enough that I want to do it in km instead of miles!

    I’ve always wanted to try sky diving, I’ve just been waiting for a good opportunity or reason. And I LOVE the dirty thirty theme, haha especially the “Dirt” with worms!

    Fun!! My parents were 30 when they married, so I wasn’t even around yet. My 30th will also be my golden birthday, so I’m hoping for a good vacation somewhere!

    Fun! I think I went on either 23 or 24. Seems like a birthday rite of passage no matter what age you choose. Happy bday to your bro-in-law. And damn all of you for being so young. Lol!

    I went sky diving for my birthday last year and it was amazing! No big plans for 30 yet (mostly because I don’t want to make it feel any closer than it is!) but I’m sure I’ll come up with something πŸ™‚

    This is such a great idea! My husband has been talking about jumping for years now, I might just surprise him with this for his birthday next year. Although, just these pictures alone kinda make me sick to my stomach…I am deathly afraid of heights!!!

    We went to Cabo for my 30th birthday. Just my husband and I. My birthday is 10 days before christmas and it’s so hard to get friends to come celebrate. We moved away from all our college friends (ie. friends our age) years ago and all our new friends are 6-15 years older than us. So, the idea of a 30th birthday didn’t ‘drive’ them anymore. Yes we had dinner with a few couples but I wanted a big ‘look at me’ celebration, so we went to Cabo and I soaked up all the warm air and margaritas πŸ™‚

    I just turned 30 myself. I don’t think I could ever skydive, though. I’ve always wanted to try hang gliding! I did my first sprint triathlon the week after my birthday; it was awesome!

    Turning 30 in October. No plans yet. I don’t think I’d ever jump out of a plane. My fear of falling is keeping me safe on the ground πŸ™‚

    How cool! We’re not big on birthdays, we celebrate rather quietly. I didn’t do anything special for my 30th birthday to be honest. But, I just turned 37 last week and I can see my 40’s coming really fast (I really don’t feel it, or even look it for that matter loll) and I am planing a big trip that’s for sure.

    I went skydiving for my 18th birthday, in Florida ironically enough! To this day (I’m just a FEW years older now, πŸ˜‰ it is still one of the coolest things I’ve done!

    For my sister’s 30th birthday we (my brother, uncle, cousin, me, and her) sky dived and it was a blast! It was actually the first time my sister flew in a plane! So she loved telling the people around her six months later when she flew to Colorado all about it.
