My Wonderful Birthday Weekend
I could not have asked for a better birthday weekend!
My wonderful husband got our friends together at one of our favorite places down in the Old Market. We had a nice table, great conversation, shared a few drinks, enjoyed dinner, and played some pool.
My wonderful mother-in-law offered to babysit the girls so we could grab a hotel and take care of our tax appointment the following day.
Don and I were able to sleep in down in the Old Market and grab some lunch at a restaurant I had never been too. The owner of the place let us in early so we could have the whole place to ourselves.
While having lunch I got to watch some Flat Stanley videos that my best friend had prepared for Fiona for her school project. I couldn’t help by cry tears of joy because my best friend took Flat Stanley to where we lived in Germany when we met. I think Fiona’s Flat will probably be the only one in her class to make the rounds in Europe to include Germany and Belgium.
We had a wonderful church service yesterday and took the kids to eat seafood at one of our favorite places here in town. Afterward, we went to the movies together as a family and watched THE LORAX. We loved it! The girls even took turns wearing my Dr. Seuss hat.
I am overwhelmed at how many people wished me a happy birthday on Facebook. My mother and father-in-law got me a super sweet birthday card too. (The picture above and inside it says: Hope knowing that you’re thought of in a very special way . . . Will add an extra little bit of sunshine to your day! Love, Don and Connie)
Brian, Kim, Nisa, Dave, and Dan – Thank you for making my day super special and a BIG I LOVE YOU to my husband Don for making a big deal out of my birthday. I thank God for all of you as well as the many wonderful blessings he has bestowed on my life.
