Did I mention that I turned thirty? I wasn't expecting anything big, but I was in for plenty of surprises. It turns out I was in for more of a birthday week than just one day. First off, my mom came and spent the day with me. We played, she watched the boys so I could go out to lunch with friends. I got to pick a restaurant that I've been wanting to try (Blue Lemon Bistro). You know how I love exploring the city.
The next morning I was spoiled with gifts. Cake plates and baker's twine from my mom.
Then tons of Martha Stewart crafting supplies form Larry. That man knows me well!
We had a great with lunch and then a hike to Donut Falls (A hike that I've been wanting to take the boys on, but Larry was not so excited about because I was raised camping and hiking and he was not). Larry told me that I could do anything that I wanted to do as long as I was ready to go to dinner by five so that's what I chose. It was gorgeous, but more about that later.
Dinner at Tasty Thai. Oh, I love Massaman Curry and pretty much everything that I've tried on their menu.
Then Larry rushed me out the door to go on the Ferris Wheel at Liberty Park (I've been saying all summer that we should do that some time and he listened). Poor Larry, this is the point of the evening that his planning fell apart. The rides were closed. It was the first day they closed at 4:00 instead of 7:00. He'd even called the week before that they said they would be open. And he was surprising me by having many of my friends from the neighborhood meet us there. Luckily, they were mostly late and we were able to call them to tell them to head straight to Tai and Kersten's where we feasted on cake. Kersten makes really good cake, and the company was even better.I was really happy. I don't think I could have had a better birthday, and I had no idea that there was more in store later in the week.
I'll tell you about it soon.
