I have a love/hate relationship with my birthday. I love the attention I get from all my friends and family, all just to celebrate me! I love having a day to do anything I want and not cooking. And most of all I love it when Fred spoils me! The only thing I hate is that it means I am a year older. This year I turned 29 and that may not seem like a big deal but that just means that next year I will be 30, yikes! I am determined to make this the best year of my twenties!
I started celebrating a few days early because Fred's gift to me was a little shopping spree. It was very much needed and appreciated! On my birthday Fred came back home around breakfast time and brought me doughnuts, Blaiden all the sudden became a big fan of my birthday too. Then we headed to our usual Friday morning playgroup. When we came home we all enjoyed a nice long nap!
When Fred got home from work Blaiden helped me open a few gifts. He had picked out a new pair of flip flops and was very excited to give them to me. We ended the night going to the hot air balloon festival and I ate a blooming onion for dinner! The kids had a great time. Adilene started dancing for the first time and was the most adorable thing in the world. Blaiden found a few little girls to play tag with. Fred and I sat on the grass and just enjoyed the night.
The celebration continued onto Saturday night where we got to go watch fireworks and I got some cotton candy! It was the best ending to my birthday.
