I realized as we were leaving that I wasn't in any of the pictures inside the bowling alley. And I would have liked to take a picture of our group. Oh well! Here I am with Rebekeh outside of the bowling alley afterward in the freezing cold :)
Today my actual birthday was pretty low-key. Steve (in the picture above) shared his delicious pork carnitas with adobo sauce - Eli was SO exhausted after church, so we did a trade and at at our own homes rather than eating together - Ben made a good salad and salsa to share with the Christensens, and they shared the carnitas. YUM!
Ben got my favorite ice cream turtle pie from Baskin Robbins, which I have every year. Eli enjoyed staring at the candle flames. And then while we ate ice cream pie, we fed Eli baby oatmeal and peas, which he liked for the most part but it made a huge mess as you can see below. And to drag my birthday out one more day, my friend Rachael is bringing her homemade kettle corn over tomorrow, which I am really excited about!) I'm thankful for fun friends and family to celebrate with. Thanks for all of your sweet phone calls, cards, and emails!
