My Twenty-eighth

I celebrated my birthday this year with a couple different parties.  I blew out the candles of my 28th birthday cake surrounded by family while they were here visiting for Spring Break and then again once my Mom arrived to town, it was then we had my "birthday dinner" with more family and friends at Bonefish followed by another cake and presents.
I don't have many pictures but believe me when I tell you that I was once again spoiled rotten.  I think it is worth noting though that my husband is pretty amazing (if I do say so myself).  For my birthday he went to the store and picked out perfume and a new pair of UGG flats for me all by himself.  He did great!  I loved the scent and the shoes.  Such confidence from him to get his wife something special.  I love it!
Cake #1
Cake #2
I always get the most unique birthday cards.
My mom hasn't been able to celebrate a birthday with me in a few years so it was pretty special her being here.  
Thanks everyone for all the love sent my way on my birthday.  

Quality Time

Before Linda and Charlie had to head back home we got a couple days to spend with them alone.  We took Linda to get the Popeye's she had been craving, got to see Charlie explore the childhood home of Hank Aaron at the Mobile Bay Bears Stadium, played at the bay with the dogs, shopped, splurged and prepared for our Easter dinner with the just the four of us (can you say steaks and crab legs anyone:)), and squeezed in as many card games as we could before we had to say goodbye.  It was a nice relaxing couple of days.
Chris and I had no idea that this was even at the Stadium, so it was cool that Charlie just happened to stumble upon it and that the workers were so willing to open it to us. 
 We had a great time with these two and appreciate them making the long journey, through snow and all, to come see us.
