Well friends, the birthday season in the artsy-crafty household has begun! Today Matt hit the big 4-0.
We started celebrating this weekend with a little family getaway. We went to Houston to watch an Astros game. It was fun to do something that we don't normally do. Matt is a total sports nut, so anything sports related is right up his alley. It's kind of funny that he married a girl with absolutely no athletic ability (or interest) whatsoever - but if it makes him happy, it makes me happy.
In case you're wondering, this is how I enjoyed the game - my knitting & a beer :-)
Our trip wasn't all sports all the time, there was plenty of exploring and just hanging out. Lucky for us, the weather was beautiful. Can you tell that these children (and I) adore their father? They should because he's a good one. I most definitely scored in the 'husband/good daddy' department.
Tonight we had a little party at home with family. Pizza, cake and ice cream - easy peasy, just the way we like it! We're lucky to have Matt's parents and his sister and her family live nearby. When we all get together on occasions like this I feel fortunate to have married into such a great family. We'll be seeing a lot of each other over the next month or so - there must be something in the water around here in the late summer months because there is a birthday explosion. By the time Alex's birthday rolls around in June, we'll be sick of birthday cake...and broke from buying gifts.
But today is Matt's special day. Happy Birthday, Matt! I love you!!!
P.S. 40 is the new 20, right? :-)
