USWNT star Megan Rapinoe turned 35 Sunday, and her Instagram lit up with tagged posts: messages, art and videos: all well wishes for the soccer athlete’s big day.

Chief among them was the hilarious dance video shared by Rapinoe’s girlfriend of three years, Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird.

In it, Rapinoe lets loose with some children in a hot tub, dancing and rocking out to Maggie Rogers’s song “Back In My Body.” She’s wearing a beach hat and appears to be having the time of her life.

Bird, 39, captioned the video: “How you live life on the outside is how you make me feel on the inside ❤️ I love you, baby. Happy Birthday!! NOW GO DANCE YOUR ASS OFF (But not in a hot tub. Just in our apartment bc we got bubble to go to )”
