Happy Birthday to Me!

My birthday fell on a Saturday this year. It was the perfect day because Todd was off work and Emilia out of school so we were able to spend the whole day together. We swam, took the kids to the park, ate at a hibachi grill near our home and did cake with my parents in the evening.

Because of Stella's problems with dairy products I had to change my birthday cake from the traditional Tres Leches to a lemon merengue. It tasted good but it still left me wanting for my favorite cake in the whole wide world. I can't wait for Stella to wean so I can have a piece...

For dinner we went to a hibachi grill where they make a show of cooking infront of you.  The food was really yummy. The kids got a little scared of the flames at the beginning of the cooking presentation and weren't very excited about the onion volcano. Carson covered his ears expecting a loud noise and cuddled up to me. Next thing I knew he was sound asleep on my lap. Stella on the other hand was wide awake so we did a quick switch and placed Carson in the baby carrier and held Stella on our laps. He looked like a giant inside the car seat.

I really enjoyed all of the gifts. I received a lot of accessories for my phone, some interesting books, some shoes I've been wanting for a while and baking ware I can't wait to use.

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes. It was a great day!
