Tuesday, September 16, 2008: A Practically Perfect Day…
A birthday present from God…this amazing morning sky!
I was so happy to spend my birthday morning at Master’s Kids with Jack…we did a fish stamping craft…with a REAL (dead) fish!! Definitely a yummy smell in the room…one of the instructions to the moms was: “Don’t say ‘GROSS’ or ‘YUCK!'” One of my aunts told me she was proud of me for smiling in this picture, but it really wasn’t that bad…I think the teacher in me came out a little. 🙂
Jack wanted to paint with each color…I love this shot of him!
After Master’s Kids, Jack and I walked out to our car to find…Ryan standing there! That was a total surprise, since I thought he was at work. He had brought a Lemon Brulee Scone from Julienne AND these lovely flowers…how sweet is that????
We headed out to pick up my mom, and continued on to Orange County, where we met my sister. Then came the next surprise of the day…an afternoon at Burke Williams Spa!!!! Oh. My. Word. Complete and total relaxation perfection. Seriously. I highly recommend this place and am planning on going back someday! Such a sweet time with my mom and sister…
Next stop: Disneyland for a birthday button, birthday phone call from Goofy, and of course a few pictures!
Another surprise…dinner at Roy’s, where I was given my own personalized Happy Birthday menu! Definitely the coolest menu I’ve ever gotten..
Views from our table…SUCH a delicious meal, aaaand dessert was on the house! Even a special personalized plate for Jack.
People I love who were there to share dinner with me… (thanks, Aunt Lana, for treating us all!!!)
My incredible husband worked so hard on every detail to make sure it was a special surprise day for me…I don’t deserve this man!!!!
I don’t deserve this sweet sister, either…she put SO much thought and care into this day.
Oh! I almost forgot…here are some of my birthday presents (as if the day’s events weren’t enough…)!
I LOVE this cookbook! So stinkin’ cute.
Oh yeah. And, along with the dvd set, I also got a Green Gables Girls Getaway weekend in October!!! CANNOT wait!!!
Every girl’s dream: the little blue box…and what came in it (from my husband…I know…seriously spoiled!)
Thank you, dear family members, for this day!!! And, thank you, dear Lord, for being SO good to me…I do not deserve these blessings, or your love.
In my next post: The Party! Maybe, just maybe, I will find the time to download the new Picasa before then…
