Weekend Pictures

Saturday night we celebrated my birthday!  Meo and Omi came over to celebrate with us.  It was a quiet celebration, but I really enjoyed myself.  I had my new camera to play with, my family, and yummy food!  What more could a girl want?  I was super lucky because Meo and Omi got me a few new shirts too!  I remember when getting clothes for your birthday was just the worst.  Now it is the best!!  Meo has great taste and I loved it all.

The guys with my cake!

After handing out March Madness awards, we had dinner and of course cake!  Another great part of it being my birthday is that I have a great excuse to pick out a wonderful cake.  I got my favorite from the grocery store.  The more chocolate the better for me!  After all that eating, Meo and I took Ben over to the park for a few minutes.  Sadly I forgot my new camera!  But he had a good time.  Ben loves to be outside.  I’m not always the most outdoorsy of girls, but that is going to change with this kid!  Overall it was a wonderful birthday celebration.  I am so lucky to have such a great family to spend it with.

Sunday we got to spend time playing with Ben and my camera.  We took Ben to the park again.  I love having it so close to us!  After going on the swings and slide, we decided to let Ben feel grass for the first time.  Yes, it might sound strange, but Ben hadn’t touched grass before.  This winter has been so long and cold, we haven’t been able to spend a lot of time outside.  Any time the weather warmed up, all the snow would melt making everything all muddy.  Last fall Ben was too young to put out in the grass.  He didn’t seem to mind it at first.  It was fun to touch, and he was allowed to pull at it.  Once I took his socks off he wasn’t as sure about it.  I’m sure he’ll come around though.  He enjoys being outside too much to not like grass.
We were able to Skype with Gramma and Grampa, where Ben was able to show off his awesome eating skills.  I love that we are able to skype with them.  It’s hard having a set of grandparents so far away.  I am trying to be better about setting up skype and phone times so Ben can know Gramma and Grampa as well as Meo and Omi.  I’m so excited for Ben to get to see them this summer!
Overall, a nice little weekend.  Thank you for all the birthday wishes, everyone!

Here are a ton of pictures.  I love my new camera!!

Ben wore his tie for my party. 🙂
