I celebrated my 38th birthday on Monday. Mike and I took the afternoon off from work and enjoyed a quiet lunch at Blackwoods followed by coffee at Caribou (thanks for the gift card Tom & Karen!) and a walk around Canal Park. Despite the fact that both of us were recovering from colds/flu, we had a great afternoon. We picked Sebastian up a little early from Kid Connection. Then Mike went to get Sophia from daycare while I hung out with Sebastian. Sophia insisted that we open cards and gifts as soon as she got home. Mike and the kids picked out three new books so that I can relax and enjoy some great reading at the cabin during our vacation next month. Sebastian picked out a shiny new stainless steel blender to make my favorite smoothies – and perhaps a daiquiri or margarita :). My current blender is almost 15 years old and I think its life is coming to an end soon. We had a great dinner at home and a delicious birthday cake. Thanks for a great birthday!!
