my weekend in photos.

Last weekend we finally got our re-do. After a [really] crappy birthday for Colby, (we spent the entire day cooped up in our car driving home from indiana, both with the flu.) I promised him we'd do the day over and do it up right for the big 30 celebration.

So, on Saturday morning while Colby & Owen went to the gym for a morning of swimming (!), I baked a cake. His favorite mayonnaise cake, as done each year. Some look better than others, but they always taste dang good!

Then after an afternoon at home, [kept occupied by our now-mobile Brooks the two of us snuck out for a celebratory dinner at our most favorite spot to celebrate big life events: Capital Grille.


 If you've never had the pleasure, then please do yourself a favor and order a stoli doli. One of my all-time favorite cocktails to start off my favorite steak dinner.

Sunday warmed up a bit, with promise of an even warmer week ahead. If this is a dream, please don't wake me.

We went to church, and while I grabbed lunch with a friend, the boys hung with our in-laws. We snuck a rare opportunity that there wasn't at least one of us in PJ's to snap our second family photo since Brooks' birth. Whoops. 

Errand-running just got easier. Since his carseat took up the entire shopping basket, we each pushed separate carts in previous family shopping excursions. This time, we enjoyed AH shopping cart with a really cute front-seat rider sticking his tongue out at us the entire time. 

 We spent the rest of our Sunday enjoying the refreshing and much needed warm front. (As did the rest of the city - everyone was outdoors.) 

That's a lot of candles. My husband is OLD. Happy birthday, honey!

We are looking forward to a week of better weather and the countdown to spring break. Come on, SPRING! We're all ready for ya.
