It's been birthday central around here and everyone got a little spoiled this year.
Lincoln got us started on the 5th with a family sushi night and his first slumber party complete with ice blocking and xbox marathon.
John followed on the 31st with family dinner at Cucina Urbana. Best place for a nice birthday dinner ever! My new favorite restaurant. It was loud enough to not feel self conscious about our noisy family, the kids menu was as appetizing as the adults and the atmosphere is amazing. Highly recommend.
John and I enjoyed a week in Orlando for Young Life's all staff conference. It was awesome. Time away together, fun with friends, Harry Potter world...yes.
Because he wasn't feeling it on his 40th birthday last year, we decided to do John's 41st up in style. We took over the party room at Hive Sushi and then finished with dessert by Heaven Sent at our house after. I handed out "John Fav's" goodie bags complete with his favorite snacks from pre-triathalon days (hostess fruit pies and fig newtons), post-triathon (almonds and banana), and a few that have survived both stages (oatmeal raisin cookies and beer!). Such a fun night and 41's looking to be an even better year. :)
Ben brought up the rear on the birthday's this past week. He enjoyed a raging dance party at school (cake in the face), family dinner at Luigi's and a day at Disney. Happy 7th big boy!
A great month. Blessed to have all of these boys in my life. Having a mani/pedi tomorrow to celebrate a little more. :)
