Pre-Birthday Festivities

My birthday festivities started on Friday. I like to draw out my birthday as long as humanly possible. I'm a little kid that way, always have been, and probably always will be. So Friday night Ryan took me out to dinner and we had a great time. It's always nice to get to go out with just Ryan. I love our kids, but date nights are the best. My wonderful sister-in-law Summer watched the kids while we gorged ourselves on steak and potatoes and the like. It was fabulous.

Then Saturday Beth and I made my traditional cupcakes. I like to make cupcakes cause then I can have just a little bit of birthday cake everyday all week long, its the way to go. haha. Beth loved helping out and of course loved being able to help eat the final product! Then in the afternoon we went and got gelato (yum!) at this new place down the street and then went and played at the city park. The kids were angels and we had a great time enjoying our afternoon together.

Yesterday, Ryan made Cinnamon Rolls for me for breakfast and helped get the kids ready for church, which is always great! After church the kids both took great naps while Ryan and I got to watch a movie and relax. I love lazy Sunday afternoons. In the evening we went the my in-laws house for a BBQ and party for me and our little niece Sophia who had a birthday last week. It was good times had by all. I got a couple of gifts including money (who doesn't like money!) and a camera bag...hmm...do you think the gift i've been asking for, or maybe demanding may be a better word, for the last year is on the horizon?

I will have to do a whole new post for the actual Birthday festivities, because they have been plentiful and are not yet over, but I wanted to get caught up from my blog slacking before I brought on the anslaught. So, until tomorrow!
