Happy Birthday

Yesterday was Beth's birthday. What did we do to celebrate? Well, instead of just your standard presents, cards and cake, the in-laws camped out in our house and hung with the kids while Beth and I took a weekend trip to Philly. Okay, so the trip wasn't entirely for Beth's birthday. It was also to celebrate our anniversary which happened last month only just before we were set to take off, Owen landed in the hospital.

The weekend? It was awesome. The weather was fantastic, the hotel excellent (despite the fact that the fire alarm went off at midnight on Sunday and we had to climb down 17 flights of stairs), the restaurants exceptional and the town was just downright cool. It was also nice just to hang out with each other. We had fun, just the two of us. It's nice know we can still do that.

Beth, I love you with all my heart and am so happy you were born. Happier you decided to shack up with me seventeen years ago, and marry me eleven years ago. Happy birthday, Sparky.

How beautifully said!

Glad to hear you guys got out and enjoyed some grown-up time!!

Mine just got home from a year deployment and we've been getting to do some reconnecting as adults and as parents of teenagers. It's been great!!!

Thanks for making me smile today! I'm up to my ears in Biology homework and it was a nice break. :)

I didn't know Beth was an electrician!

Also, congrats to the kids for NOT getting sick. Good job, guys!

Happy birthday, Beth!

(More importantly, I want to know where you stayed, where you ate, and where you visited, because I am super nosy about my hometown like that.)
