Brian’s Birthday Weekend



My lovely husband turned 24 this weekend.

Only one more year until you can rent a car, my dear!  However, siring multiple children, buying a house, buying a car, etc. is a go.

(Those of you who are very observant may remember that I turned 24 in December, which, yes, makes me older than Brian.  And wiser.)


Joseph and I let Dada sleep in on his big day and together we made him a birthday cake.


That kid loves to help cook.

However, it is a labor of love on my part to let him participate..



We sang Happy Birthday to Brian and had him blow out candles about a million times while Joseph laughed and clapped.


Notice anything wrong with the frosting? (Upper right corner) 


Joseph is a boy after my own frosting-loving heart.


After breakfast, we went to the local outdoor-supply store and picked ourselves up a fire pit!


And yes, Joseph is holding a lighter in that picture.

But look what happens when we take it away-


We have had fires the past two nights now, complete with hot dog roasting and smores.  It is so enjoyable- like camping, but without the outhouses, tents, hard ground….


Happy Birthday, Brian!  Thanks for giving up your youth to provide for our little family!

Your backyard has plenty of room to pitch a tent - then you can have camping fun right at home!

Glad the birthday went well! We were thinking of you - did you make it out on your date?

Ter said...

gosh you guys are BABIES with BABIES!

you make me feel so old, so I think I'll take a few minutes to hate you.

okay I'm done hating you, for now anyway. ;)

Love the firepit - and those curls on my boy :)

I stumbled over to your blog via T Rex Mom's, and I must crack me up. I'll be coming back for more!

Happy birthday Brian! Glad to be reminded that I'm not the only "baby /w a baby." I think I'm going to rent a car for my 25th birthday present to myself! Also - Caitlin - Joseph's pjs are really, really cute. Good job!

Happy Birthday to Brian! Lots of fun at the party! Joseph looks adorable. He is a real party guy!

Nina said...

So cute that you are just a few months older.

I love when they help in the kitchen. Twice the mess but it just wouldn't be as much fun.

Happy birthday Brian! (A bit late but better late than never!) You have one awesome little family there!

And the photo of Joseph looking like he is caught in the act is just so funny ... it cracks me up!

And the frosting handprint is classic!
