Belated Birthday post

My birthday this year was pretty fun. It fell on a Sunday this year. Matt, Nate, Mom, and I started celebrating early with lunch on Saturday at Bahama Breeze. It was yummy! Nate gorged himself on Matt's dish and helped himself to some of my fish tacos. He is such a hearty little eater!

Saturday night my mother looked after Nate while Matt and I went to an Irish pub at the Landing. The food was very good and we had a nice riverfront view with some jazz music playing in the background since the jazz festival was in town. Our friend Kristy joined us there and we had a fun time hanging out.

Nate must have known it was my birthday because he was up around 1am on Sunday. My sweet mom took him and rocked him because she wasn't sleepy. He eventually dozed back off and woke up around 3am. I put him in the bed with Matt and me but he refused to go to sleep. By 4am he was up and going strong. I had already put him back in his bed, but I heard him up again. I went to check on him and he and my mother were up eating bagels and watching TV. Crazy! At 5am I relieved her and she went back to bed. I finally got him down for a nap around 6am and when he woke up around 7am I kicked Matt and told him it was his turn. I slept a little longer and when he finally crashed for a longer nap earlier in the morning the entire house went down for a nap! Needless to say, we pretty much wasted the morning.

I was supposed to go see Gavin DeGraw with my friend Hannah on Sunday night. We made it all the way to the amphitheater only to find out they cancelled the concert. Tropical Storm Beryl began raining down and caused them to change their mind about having the concert. I was with Hannah and two of her friends and they decided I needed a birthday cake. So, we stopped by Publix and had cake at Hannah's before I decided it was time to hit the road before the massive rains hit. I made it home safely and Matt was cooking soup. Nate was glad to see me so we stayed up and played since I was out of school on Monday. 

Overall it was a pretty good birthday! Here's to another great year ahead!

One of my two birthday cakes this year!
