What a nice couple days. Yesterday was Rick's birthday and I thought we wouldn't be able to celebrate much because Matthew had a baseball game and Shoshi had a birthday party. It turned out Matthew was playing Brett's team. I called Lauren and asked if they would have pizza with us at the field... she made great cupcakes and we had a little sideline party while watching the game. After the game Rick was throwing the ball around with Brett and Matthew... then Missy and Andrew showed up with yummy homemade peanut butter cookies. Andrew joined in the fun while all us moms just sat around talking. It ended up being a really nice evening. Lauren went to pick the girls up from the party just as dusk was setting in. Rick said he had a nice birthday so that is all that really matters.
Today was our 15th wedding anniversary. Rick surprised me with a beautiful necklace... pearl, diamond, and pink sapphire. It is beautiful. I gave him an altimeter watch/compass on a carabiner that he can use for skiing, hiking, etc. and also some clothes. He seems to like everything. The kids wanted to join us for our anniversary dinner. We went to Scoogi's and it was really yummy. We used to go there more often but I guess that was before kids. We had a really nice evening with lots of good food.
Life is good !!
