It seems like Jason's birthday celebration has lasted a few weeks! First was the get-together with his family at Red Robin. Last month, when I asked him how he wanted to celebrate his birthday, he said he wanted to go to a Grizzlies game with his friends. This past Friday, Aaron, Adam, Allen, Randy, and Brian joined Jason to see the Grizzlies play Reno. Jed was supposed to come but got sick, so he hung out with his Jason on Sunday night. Today was Jason's actual birthday. The kids and I dropped by his school at lunch with some In-N-Out. For dinner, he requested fried calamari steaks, which I prepared with lemon linguine and artichokes. For dessert, he requested strawberry pie, which I made for the first time (nothing can compare to his mom's!). After our meal, the kids took Jason on a treasure hunt for his gifts. Grace wrote out all of the clues earlier today (it was Monday afterall- Monday is Writing Day). The hunt led to the bathtub and after retrieving his gifts, the kids excitedly watched him open his gifts. They (I mean, Grace) had insisted a month ago that they wanted to get Jason a watergun.
I feel blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life- he really is my best friend, an incredible husband, and an amazing daddy. Happy Birthday, Babe!
