Today is Alex’s birthday and we couldn’t be happier about celebrating in Seattle. I made home-made macaroni and cheese and roasted asparagus for dinner; all was his choice and then surprised him with a blackberry and strawberry pie. I always like making dinner for us, but birthday dinners are just a bit better I think.
We’ve done some pretty fun things for each of our birthday’s over the past few years. Once we went skiing and stayed a bed and breakfast, another we went to Las Vegas, and last year for mine Alex surprised me with dinner at Alinea in Chicago. That was amazing to say the least. Beside this year’s dinner at home, we are also celebrating out with his sister and brother-in-law who come into town tomorrow night. Alex hasn’t celebrated his birthday with them in awhile, so we are really looking forward to it.
Well, to another wonderful year for us, in a new city. He said he’s excited about what’s to come and so am I.
