Matt's Big 4-0!


Matt had a birthday yesterday and it was a big one (I have to give him a hard time because he's younger than I am)!  He is not one for a lot of fanfare for himself and he made me swear I wouldn't do a party or anything "crazy" like that.  Luckily our neighborhood threw a day long bike race, so we started our days with window seats and doughnuts, and ended it was cheering for the pros (man, those guys go fast!).


The rest of the day was busy as well with a stop at the zoo, a movie and dinner at one of our favorite places.  We also gave Matt 40 presents for his 40th, including this handmade necklace (shrinky dink charm & beads...kid collaborative effort) that Matt wore the entire day (best dad ever!).  The 40 gifts got a little trying towards the end (at one point I felt like I was one step away from the Friends episode where they buy all of their Christmas presents at a gas station), but I think went over well.  My favorite was the homemade beer-of-the-month club made up of a six-pack and a gift card to get another for six more months.


We are all exhausted this morning, but it was worth every second.  I'm blaming the Saturday date night where I stayed out way past my bedtime.  It's definitely not that we are both now in the over 40 club...

Thanks for the fun birthday. And the 40 things for turning 40! Don't know how you came up with that many ideas. Me and my taste buds thank you.
