Philip caught up to me in age this week (only a mere 7 months). We had an early birthday celebration at Uncle Steve and Aunt Teri's house the Saturday before. We had "make your own skewer" dinner and it was such a fun idea!
He worked the night before and the night of his birthday, so I tried to make it special in spite of that. I let the kids pick out balloons at meijer, and doughnuts to make a doughnut cake. We had wrapped presents weeks ago and Ainsley has been chomping at the bit to give him what she picked out (Luke skywalker legos).
After we had breakfast with him, he went to bed. I had a cake ordered from a bakery on Morehead. They did a special key lime cake for me, and one of his coworkers picked it up for me and took to the department. I hid plates, napkins and forks in his trunk, and his coworker told him to go get them after he saw his cake:)
Saturday night I made reservations for his favorite steakhouse. Mom and Dad kept the kids for us while we went out to celebrate. We were so stuffed I made him walk around triangle park so I could feel like I could breathe again.
Sunday night Philips mom, brother, and SIL came over for a delicious meal of grilled out steaks, baked potatoes and key lime pie from Missy's (de-licious).
We loved celebrating Philip and what a wonderful husband, friend and dad he is. Happy 34th Hubs!!!
*Also on Saturday Ainsley had a double header in soccer. It was like 83 degrees out, middle of nap time, and she hates soccer to begin with. Here are just some pics of how much she enjoyed herself.
