The birthday boy!!!

Around here, we don't just celebrate the day of your birth...we stretch birthdays into days, weeks, and sometimes even birthday months! And it was time to start the birthday celebration for Eric! On Tuesday, May 24th, he will turn 35 years old. A couple of weeks ago, we were watching TV and a commercial came on for:

Eric said "I'd like to go see that for my birthday." And a plan was set into motion! Since Abby has been gone for a week on a beach vacation (more to come in a future post), we were fortunate to have someone volunteer for the twins to go and have their very fist slumber party away from home - and without Mommy or Daddy! So last night, with the house quiet, and no kids around, we enjoyed a birthday dinner of grilled steaks, baked potatoes, corn on the cob, salad and BBQ bread dinner! Then we headed out on date night to the late movie - the opening night of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides! It's been a while since we've had a date night, much less one where we were out past midnight! It was fun celebrating Eric's birthday with him...and as Abby says - "Shhhh, don't tell him but we have more things for his birthday! It's a secret!" So stay tuned to see what the birthday boy will be surprised with!

PS - To make this night happen, we'd like to give a huge shout out to Aunt Carol and Ra Ra! The girls got their beds and bags packed up and headed over to their house late Friday afternoon. The girls had a ball exploring the house, playing with Aunt Carol and Ra Ra, and eating banana pudding for the first time - which they loved!!! It was nice to enjoy a night out knowing that our girls were safe, happy and having fun! But, first thing this morning I headed over to pick them up - and it was awesome to see their faces light up when I walked into the room...even if gone from us for only for a few hours, those two were missed!!!!!
