Ben turned the big 3-7 yesterday. What fun we had celebrating him! The kids picked out his birthday card, gifts (two new Walking Dead figurines to add to his collection), and birthday balloons. They specifically picked out a balloon that said, "Over the Hill" because they knew that meant someone was getting old. Made me laugh. :)
Babe was the first one in our room on the morning of Ben's big day. I can't think of a sweeter way to wake up then to hear her little voice whispering, "Happy Birthday, Daddy" and then climbing into bed to snuggle. Love that girl.
Ben came downstairs for our morning tradition of balloons, gifts, and breakfast. Unfortunately, Mimi got him the exact same gift I did (embroidered shorts from Belk), so he returned the pair I purchased and picked out a couple of new shirts for himself. We didn't bother wrapping those.
We continued our celebration of Ben by visiting his new office and taking him to lunch at La Cazuela.
The kids and I then came home to get started on Ben's cake. Their original plan had been to decorate a "zombie/policeman" cake. That didn't happen.
