We didn’t go big for birthdays this year but that doesn’t mean we didn’t celebrate! Robert was out of town on his actual birthday but we had a little home party when he got back with some Olexa’s cake!
He, of course, had a little help blowing out his candles! 🙂
It was an iPhone year around here – I got Robert a new one for his birthday and my mom got me a new one for my birthday! 🙂 I got the 8Plus so I could get the portrait mode on the camera. I have to learn how to use it best but am excited about the shots it can take!
On Friday night before my birthday on Saturday, GJ came into town and we loaded up the kids and drove to Atlanta for the night. We had an appointment with an Atlanta photographer to get pictures taken of the kids. It was kind of my birthday present to myself! Despite some rambunctiousness at the hotel, the kids did GREAT for the photog and I have to believe he got some really good shots.
I was just happy to be inside a studio after our disastrously freezing photos last year! There was even plenty of things to entertain the kids there too!
As a reward for good behavior we had lunch at – where else? – Moe’s!
There was also some ice cream and a trip to Target for the new toys you saw on Monday’s post. Bribery works every time! 🙂 We were back in Birmingham by Saturday afternoon in plenty of time to watch some football that night. Roll Tide and cheers to another year!
