Daddy's Birthday

Dan and I were lucky enough to go out for a "date night", a first in who knows how long. Seriously, neither of us could remember the last time it was just the two of us, no kiddos, no clients, no coworkers, no friends, just us. We were celebrating Daniel's 31st year of birth at dinner in a wonderful restaurant, with cocktails , hors 'd oeuvres and a dessert!! Who has time with any of those things with 3 kids? The kids are always well behaved in a restaurant but, come on, there is always chicken to be pulled apart and cooled, ketchup to be set out on a separate little plate, cereal to be spoon fed, and sticky hands to be wet wiped. Never trading any of those sweet things for the world, we are making an official commitment to have "date night" more frequently since we both had such a wonderful time together, just the 2 of us.

That being said, the kids had tons of fun watching the big boy daddy open his brightly wrapped presents, decorating the kitchen with balloons and streamers, meeting him at the door and yelling "happy birthday" when he walked in the door from work, and lastly, blowing out the candles on his very special homemade by kiddos birthday cake.

Happy birthday baby! We love you soooooooooooooooo much!
