Surprise 40th!

Today has been one heck of a busy day. We had to get up early for a 9am baseball game, then pick Zoe up from a friends, run some errands and then go to a 40th surprise birthday party. We didn’t get home until close to 7, and boy am I tired!

We had a great time at the party, and I’m sure glad we went. The friend of mine who the party was for doesn’t officially turn 40 until July, but they had her party early because of some family conflicts. So, it was easy to surprise her with a birthday party when her real birthday wasn’t for another few months!

Isn’t she cute?! She just had no idea! She was such a great sport though and even sported her birthday hat for most of the afternoon…until she found the pretty bow on one of her gifts!

One of the hostesses passed out little soft toys for the kids to play with while we were there, and they had a great time. Landon didn’t know any of the other kids, but once he had a ball he found those kids and played with them for the entire time we were there!

Zoe knew some of the girls there too, so she had someone to sit and talk to as well…and make creatures with!

Now everyone’s tired and looking forward to a nice day at home tomorrow. My family is coming up to celebrate Mother’s Day, and I’m pretty sure we are going to be busy, busy, busy!

I've made it to day 9 without forgetting to move Peppermint and I have to admit that even I'm surprised. Here's what our elf has...
