BIG Birthday Wishes

     The past weekend was such a busy one.  It was hubby’s birthday weekend and we did it up BIG!  The boys and I treated him to dinner at his favorite seafood restaurant on Friday night.  Soccer and baseball games Saturday morning, Jesse’s friend’s birthday party in the afternoon and a birthday bonfire Saturday night here at the house…complete with live music :)  Sunday, recoup, two more kids’ birthday parties to attend and birthday dinner at another restaurant with Don’s family.  Lots of birthday-ing going on and I hadn’t a single slice of cake nor a dollop of ice cream :(

     We spoiled him so much this weekend that I think it made up for the lack in size of card ;)  Besides, I always heard that good things come in small packages :)  Thanks for stopping in for a quick peek.  I hope you’ve been inspired.
