The Makings of a Perfect Day... or Week!

Bahaha. Yeah Right!

I turned the big 2-7 this week and am happy to say that I had the BEST birthday ever!! I think the older you get the less you care about your birthday. That having been said, you expect less so when you do get something you're more appreciative and feel pretty darn cool. That's how I felt this last week, at least. On Tuesday, we went out to dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. We thought it would be fun for Lily with all the fish, fake elephants and gorillas, etc. Boy were we wrong!! She LOVED it at first, but we forgot there was a fake tropical thunderstorm every 20 minutes or so where all the lights flashed and there was thunder,etc. That freaked her out a little bit. By the second time it happened, she was trying to unbuckle herself out of the high chair and kept saying, "bye, bye..." We ate real quick and were sure to be out of there before the third storm hit. :)
On Friday, Lorin took a half day so we could really celebrate then. My mom kindly agreed to watch Lily so Lo and I could bowl, hit a movie and grab dinner. We went bowling (which was SOOO FUN!) and called my mom to check on Lily afterwards. She woke up way too early from a nap and had been crying for the last 20 minutes wandering the house and calling, "mommy." We decided we should go and pick her up and finish the date later. Fortunately, we were able to do just that and hit CPK that night and the movie the next day. We saw "Wolverine," which was pretty darn cool. It was just so much fun, and I'm glad I got to spend that time with Lily and Lorin. I was also able to celebrate with both fams which is always so great!! I've decided that I had everything I could want this past week....
