Anyways, back to my birthday . . . After the boys came back from school I decided I wanted to go on a bike ride - I had a few groans and so I had to throw out, "It's my birthday!" It worked. I pulled the girls in the bike trailer and the boys rode with me and we were out for quite a while. It was lovely and warm. We rode to a little park where we stopped and played. Then we played in a bush. Yes, a bush. A specific bush. My kids really like it. Then this walk-way path has recently put in some new "work-out" things - you know, a bar, some rowing thing for arms, etc. The kids liked trying them all out. So did I. I think it's great. Anyways, I was glad to get out on a nice day.
By the time we got back it was after 5 and Ben was running late at work. So I started whipping up dinner - this is what I chose. It was pretty yum and the kids (all but Lucy) did pretty great at eating it, too. I also worked on my rice-krispie cake (with frosting, of course). The kids had gone to the dollar store on Saturday (they had some gift card from one of our friends - from Christmas) and bought
By the time kids were down, milk bought, hair cuts done (for Ben and Miles), dishes done, phone calls made, etc., it was pretty late. Ben and I did watch one episode of The Middle, but he forgot to give me a back-rub during it. I'll take a rain-check on that, then. :)
Happppppy Birthday to meeeee.
