This weekend we celebrated David's 30th birthday. Friday night my Aunt Debbie and Uncle Dan let the boys come over while we went to eat at Bonefish Grill! Yum! It was so nice to sit at a meal and just talk without being interrupted with "I need to potty, Hey I need to tell you something, I need a snack, I need a drink, I want that toy brother has", and all the other things our boys say that we adore BUT still love when we can have adult conversation.
Then we were real crazy partiers and went to Target to buy diapers since we were completely out after the snow days at home. We tried to stay gone as long as possible because I knew when we returned to pick up the boys, Drew would absolutely protest leaving. Well, of course, he did. Uncle Dan bought a new hunting Wii game which Drew loved. They also have great snacks at their house like M&Ms, Chocolate Chip cookies and pizza. I am so thankful they love the boys and the boys love them. We treasure the date nights we have!
Saturday was David's actual birthday and he celebrated it with TWO birthday parties. One at Chuck E. Cheese and one at Jump Zone. How lucky can one guy be, right? He did at least get to go eat at Shoguns for dinner with friends. He doesn't really like birthday cake so he just wanted brownies for his "cake". Drew couldn't understand where his cake was because we neeeded to sing "Happy Birthday". We decided to put a candle (including Alex's Elmo candle) in David's brownie & Drew led us in singing "Happy Birthday".
I hope he enjoyed his day! Happy Birthday David...we love you!
I decided several weeks ago that I wanted to begin a blog about our family. Then I decided that this will take the place of my Facebook account. I deleted my facebook account a year ago but reactivated it when we moved away from Jonesboro. I hope my blog will allow our family and friends to stay updated on what we are doing but more importantly how the boys are growing & what they do everyday. Also since I still have an empty scrapbook that I bought when Drew was born...this will serve as a scrapbook for the boys.
