Birthday revisited

My birthday wasn't just a broken armed little girl. I spent the day unpacking from our trip up to snowbird and I made birthday cupcakes to share with my primary class on Sunday. Randy was busy going to the pinewood derby and he also worked hard on our yard. He bought a new lawnmower too. He bought me a beautiful hanging flower pot for our front porch.
Randy also got a babysitter and took me out to dinner. We had a tiny little tag along, but she was pretty good.

After our dinner, we headed to ColdStone to get me a birthday cake. You would think I would make my own, but I absolutely LOVE ice-cream cake. This year I picked out the mint chocolate cake.  We brought it home and the kids all sang happy birthday to me. They were pretty upset that I would buy a mint flavored cake, so I gave them some of the cupcakes I had baked earlier.
It was a fun birthday filled with calls from family all throughout the day (and a couple of late calls the next day). I sure felt loved and I am grateful for my family and all of the many blessings I have. 
Here's to a great 29th year!

Cake looks delicious but I bet it was not as good as yours!

How dare you pick out a cake that you would like instead of one the kids would like!
I'm glad you had a good day!
