My birthday this year was sweet and fun. It's funny the older you get, the more my birthdays are a reminder that I am getting older. Not that I am old, but my birthday this year reminded me that I am not getting any younger.
The day started with my husband taking my daughter to school and leaving me to myself the entire morning. What!?! I don't remember the last time I layed in bed watching tv in the morning. Seriously, I don't remember.
When he got home, he brought a beautiful chocolate cake from a local bakery, the sweetest card and a birthday gift. After they sang me Happy Birthday and I opened my gift, Tim and I chatted literally for a minute and look over at my one year old son and he had scraped the icing on top and had eaten it/all over his mouth. Seriously, it was the cutest. We ate lunch and then went hiking at Bridal Veil Falls. Such a beautiful, easy hike for the kids and a breath taking waterfall at the end. Loved it. Being in Portland has reminded me how much I love hiking. I love to be outdoors enjoying God's creation.
After the hike, we came home and got ready for a hot date with my man. Nothing better than to end with a date. We ate at The Parish. It's a fun Lousiana food restaurant with a fun saloon feel.
My birthday was the first birthday celebrated in Portland and we celebrated well.
Here are a few pictures from the day.
