Seriously, birthdays are an EVENT around here. For me, three days. Once upon a time it was more like a week, but now a measly three days. Hah! Okay, I'm happy with three days. (Thrilled, even!). So, let's recap. Day #1 Ikea for my superdeefantasticlyawesome new kitchen table; Day #2 EPCOT with the kiddos for food, beer & fireworks; and now Day #3 (my *actual* birthday) ...
We started off with our traditional birthday donuts because, DUH.
And rounded out the evening with a (rainy and wet) barbecue dinner.
Because, really, it's not a birthday in our home until something is burned on the grill.
Jessi brought over a beautifully decorated and equally yummy cake.
We sang. And ate.
Wesley, after heroically saving the a/c system right in the middle of dinner,
begrudgingly sat while I practiced with the self timer.
Because we all know, I'm really *not* great at it.
