A Birthday Survived

Jason marked his thirty-fifth birthday this year. You know, we kind of like to celebrate birthdays at our house, so of course it was a major event. Plus, the halfway point of a decade is a pretty big deal, too (I think).

Upon arriving home from a weekend scout campout to the sand dunes (I should make it clear that the campout was not part of the celebrating), Jason's parents took our whole family out to eat at the restaurant of Jason's choice, Brick Oven. Yummy!

Monday morning I offered to make Jason a birthday breakfast of his request. Wouldn't you know it, he didn't choose cold cereal! I had to get up a bit earlier than normal to make German pancakes with buttermilk syrup. Following breakfast, Jason opened his gifts and then left for work.
That evening, our family went out for dinner, and Jason chose a place we hadn't been to yet--Five Guys Burgers and Fries. I love a good burger, and this place did not disappoint!
With sufficiently full bellies, we went home and began watching Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I planned a surprise-that-turned-into-a-not-surprise birthday party for Jason for the following day. More on that later. It was a great couple of days, and turned out to truly be a happy birthday for Jason.
