The Birthday Boy

Today, Grant turned 31!

We all slept in until 11:15 this morning! Amazing! We had a big brunch in honor of Grant's birthday, and then gave him a treat bag filled with pistachios and gummy candy. He got his big present in May, in the form of the HTC Droid, but we had to at least give him something on his birthday!

We spent a lazy afternoon at home...indoors, because it was in the high 90's with a heat index in the 100's. YUCK! It was like an oven outside, and the humidity was horrible.

We dropped the kids off at Grant's parent's house, while we went out to dinner. It was nice going out alone! We went to Lone Star Steakhouse, which is one of Grant's favorite restaurants. I'm not a red meat eater, but I found some delicious alternatives! As a bonus, we ended up getting a server that we knew, and got a big discount on our check! ;)

After sharing his free birthday dessert (without the public embarrassment of being sung to), we picked up some party supplies, and then picked up our kids.

Tonight, we had some of our closest friends and a few family members over to celebrate. It was a last minute get-together, but we had fun! The kids were thrilled that a few of their friends showed up. Halfway through the evening, a storm came in and it cooled off a bit.

I was busy visiting with our guests, and didn't think to break out the camera until after everyone was soaked from the rain and getting ready to leave. Every so often, the photographer has to take a break!

It was a nice birthday for Grant! He will be older than me for the next 9 months, and I plan to make the most of it! ;)

Happy Birthday, G! I-make that WE- love you!
