His birthday day, we kids got up early and laid out the hand-made cards (which were his favorites), along with all of the healthy treats. Funny story: I got a whole BAG of all of his favorite sweet treats, but the turkey discovered my hiding spot and ate all of them in a late-night sugar binge! I pieced together the remaining treats, and made some cinnamon rolls and OJ for breakfast, and we all went off to school/work for the day. Good grief!

along with a picture of a "scary monters". Maybe they ate all the treats?!
Josh wanted to run 35km for his 35th birthday (to each their own), so off he went just after lunch for a nice run. The weather held out better than I thought, but it was still snowing sideways for most of his run. He was cold and wet when he got home, but he made it!

Following work, Josh chose a dinner OUT for his birthday meal. It's so nice we are all old enough now we can somewhat enjoy a warm sit-down dinner at an establishment w/o causing a scene! We enjoyed burgers, fries, gyros and fish tacos at our local restaurant - South Fork.
We didn't snap any pictures of dinner, but it was pretty exciting to run into Boo's teacher. One draw-back for our small-town teachers, chances are you're going to run into a former student everywhere you go! I appreciate the little assortment of lunch boxes they have for kids. Each lunchbox has 5-6 little McDonalds toys inside, that kids can play with while waiting for their food. Diddles LOVES these! Great idea!
After dinner we cut into a delicious home-made chocolate cake, after singing twice and blowing out the candle twice as well. (sigh) Diddles.
