Happy Birthday, Grant!

Today was Grant's Birthday!

Dylan, Lexie, and Lily were so excited to celebrate their Daddy's Birthday!  Dylan and Lexie made cards for him, then wrapped up a few treasures they found in their rooms for him.  It melts my heart when they do that.  Each item is so carefully and lovingly chosen, and given with so much pride!  Those gifts may not seem like much, but it is to them, so those gifts are treasured!

He got an early birthday present from us a few months ago...a new grill! We still gave him some new cologne to open today!

Birthdays aren't too exciting once you reach a certain age.  I think the kids get more excited about our birthdays than we do!

It was a low key day.  Before heading out to dinner, Grant's mom stopped by with a cake!

My parents watched the kids while we went to Red Lobster for dinner.  It's his favorite restaurant. It was nice to get out and enjoy an uninterrupted meal!

The last time we were at Red Lobster was for his birthday last year.  I was ready to pop!  We hoped Lily would share his birthday.  No such luck, but she did it in her own way.  Grant's birthday is 7/24.  She came 10 days later, at 7:24 AM.  Close enough!

Shortly after we met and got engaged, Grant celebrated his 20th Birthday. We've come a long way since then!

Happy Birthday, Grant!  We love you!
