birthdays (part three)

So this was the BIG SUPRISE . . . .

Friday evening we dropped Lily off at the babysitter's (thanks Auntie Janna) & unbeknownst to Jake, Lily was staying there for the night! Lily had her first sleepover & did great.

We drove downtown & I told Jake where to turn. We pulled in to The Front Street Inn.
We stayed in The Nutcracker Suite. We then walked to The Riverboat Landing for dinner.

After a yummy dinner, we went to Port City Java for some coffee & then back to our suite for some Coastal Cupcakes. I ordered these & had them delivered to our room.

Such a fun weekend. We picked up our little bug around 11am on Saturday morning. We missed her & she was happy to see us.

birthdays (part two)

I thought. . . why not make the cake on Saturday, so we can eat Birthday Cake all week?!

Jake not too excited about 3-0.

Coming to grips rather quickly when I said we could eat cake ALL week.

This Friday, January 28th, Jake turns 30!
I decided we should start celebrating early . . . all week.

We started this morning. I made homemade cinnamon rolls with homemade cream cheese icing.
The birthday candles are out & we ate them on the birthday plates.

I made a "Happy Birthday" banner for our mantle.

More updates on Jake's birthday to come!
