Well, it's official. Dan wins the husband of the year award for making my birthday the best one yet. My alarm went off at 5:30am, I rolled over and Dan was already up. I went down stairs and the whole kitchen was decorated. Streamers, balloons, confetti, a "you are special" plate, flowers, and presents. We went and played our usual 6am basketball with friends at the middle school (Tues. & Thurs.) then came home and Dan made breakfast while I opened presents. He got me a stereo for my ipod, a wiffle ball & bat, and my favorite cookies. I then went and got a massage! It was the best.
After the massage I managed to make it to work. When I got there Dan had left a gift in my office. It was my favorite Jelly Bellys and a hand held Solitaire game (we have Yatzee and love it!). THEN, for lunch he came to my work, set up a table, chairs, and a camping stove in a little grassy area. He made me fajitas right there! After lunch he pulled out some ice cream sandwiches and candles and sang me all 3 family bday songs. We sat there for a while in the sun before I headed back to work.
Once we both got back from work, we went on a bike ride. Dan and I have the greatest 1 speed beach cruisers that we ride all over town. We eventually made our way to our favorite Thai restaurant, got take out, and rode over to the city park. We sat on a bench, ate dinner, and enjoyed the perfect weather. On the way home we stopped by Dan's parents and brothers homes. They got me some nice gifts including the best card ever. Thanks Amy.
We then got home, changed, and went and played some more bball with some church friends. We play on Thursday nights under the lights of our friend DJ's sports court. They live out in the country on an amazing piece of land. I feel like I'm in heaven whenever we go out there. It's beautiful!
So, I think you can agree, it was the best bday ever. Full of all my favorite things. That's what a bday should be all about. Thanks for all bday calls and emails. I felt VERY loved.
