Having Chad’s birthday come only four days after Valentine’s Day really messes me up, for some reason. I get thinking about what to do for him for one and forget about the other! But lucky for him, he usually gets to have a fun, long weekend and this year included a Monday off for President’s Day! Here is how we celebrated:
Dad brought home these balloons for the kids and they went nuts! Good thinking, Chad! I made a homemade heart-shaped pizza and we had a little family dinner, complete with Valentine’s Day paper plates. So festive. And we finished the night with some homemade Swig cookies. Uh, yum.
My parents offered to babysit for us while we went out for Chad’s birthday dinner/Valentine’s Day. We decided to try out Twigs, this cool restaurant at Station Park. It was dang good. Chad had a pork shank that was so tasty and I had butternut squash gnocchi – always a good choice.
Chad had to stay at work until late for City Council meeting on his actual birthday, so we celebrated on Monday instead. We were going to go to Lego Movie, but we aren’t smart enough to buy tickets ahead of time and all the showings were sold out. We went to Boondocks instead and rode on the slick track, then came home for a little grilling and some cheesecake.
It was a fun weekend!
