My birthday was yesterday, as was Super Bowl XLVI. Despite my having to take a lesson in learning to share, it was a lovely birthday.
On Saturday night, we went out for dinner together at a BBQ place and then out for ice cream at our favorite local ice cream shop.
Maggie got the hugest cone she's ever seen, absolutely covered in chocolate sprinkles.
Kate had a more child-sized bowl of rainbow sherbet, no sprinkles thank you very much.
By the time we were done there, it was past the girls' bedtime and they were totally sugared up, so it quickly went from fun to crazy town. It was totally worth it.
On Sunday, Mike's parents came over and brought us homemade soup for lunch - so nice! Then Mike and the girls made me a cake while I went to the mall all by myself and did a little shopping.
Devil's food with buttercream frosting - and pink and purple sprinkles! My favorite.
I couldn't ask for a nicer way to celebrate getting old!
